WESTPORT — They may be “SLOBS,” but their good works are really neat.
The Staples High School Service League of Boys, or SLOBS, on Sunday will carry out its philanthropic mission of community projects for its annual “Service Sunday,” logging an estimated 500 hours doing jobs around town and area communities. Working with their parents, the student group will also donate about $4,000 in supplies for the projects.
During this school year, SLOBS also have volunteered at more 100 community events in Westport, Norwalk and Bridgeport, with a combined 4,000 hours of service, according to publicity from the club. The group has also collected and delivered food, toys, books, sports equipment, clothes and bedding to area charities this year.
SLOBS has about 200 members this year.
On Service Sunday, SLOBS volunteers will be at 11 sites in town, as well as Norwalk and Bridgeport, working on projects that range from cleanups and garden planting to stocking food pantries and preparing donations for the poor in Latin America.
