WARM THE CHILDREN VOLUNTEERS -- Lyndon State College and Johnson State College Upward Bound program students recently volunteered with Warm the Children, a local program that has a mission to provide new, warm winter clothing to school aged children who reside in Orleans County and Island Pond. The program is sponsored by the Barton Chronicle and seeks donations from its readership each year to provide for the area's children. This year 145 children from 21 local schools received brand new winter outerwear! Fifty-two Upward Bound students acted as volunteer shoppers and assisted families with selecting and sizing their new clothes. For the 8th year, Pick and Shovel in Newport hosted the program and did everything possible to help ensure that the area's students received the clothing they needed to stay warm in the coming winter months. LSC Upward Bound student volunteers represented eight area high schools: Lyndon Institute, Concord School, Lake Region Union High School, Canaan Memorial School, Danville School, Woodsville High School, Craftsbury Academy and St Johnsbury Academy. JSC Upward Bound student volunteers represented four area high schools: North Country Union High School, Peoples Academy, Richford High School and Lamoille Union High School.
