It is said that if you ‘train up a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not depart from it.’
Leonidas Stivala of Olyphant spent a recent Saturday afternoon with his grandmother, Laura Stivala of Dunmore, loading food from the Stamp Out Hunger event through the U.S. Postal Service.
Carrying bags of cereals, soups, pastas and more, the little one is being taught to give to others. As a new four-year- old, Leonidas enjoys giving to others through the lessons taught to him by his family.
“I need to help the people who need us”, Leonidas exclaimed as he pulled bag after bag through the back of the truck.
The food was donated to the Keystone Rescue Mission. Its Scranton location is located on West Olive Street. They offer spiritual needs as well as those of food and clothing. Dinner is served four days a week.
