WILTON \u2014 Students at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Academy recently organized a food drive to benefit the Wilton Food Pantry. The students are members of Sodality, a Catholic youth group for students in sixth through eighth grades that is largely dedicated to community service projects. Our Lady of Fatima Youth Ministry Coordinator Mara Fleming explained it was Abby Jones, a Wilton resident and seventh-grade student, who suggested the food drive during a recent Sodality meeting on Zoom. \u201cWe talked about\u2026 specific problems that the pandemic is causing in our community,\u201d Fleming said. \u201cAbby pointed out that the pandemic has been, understandably, taking everyone\u2019s attention right now, and that some constant needs \u2014 like feeding the hungry in our community \u2014 are being overshadowed.\u201d Fleming recalled Abby saying, \u201cI don\u2019t want us to forget about them.\u201d Click here to sign up for The Bulletin\u2019s free, electronic newsletter, Online Today. Part of Abby\u2019s inspiration came from the school\u2019s previous initiatives to provide meals to local healthcare workers during the pandemic. Since the crisis began, volunteers, including students, staff and parents, have organized several large-scale meal deliveries to Norwalk Hospital and other healthcare workers in the area. Abby obtained permission from Academy principal Stan Steele and pastor, Father Reggie Norman, to set up collection bins for the food drive, and then tackled all the logistical details, including scheduling, promotion and the delivery. \u201cAbby did it all,\u201d Fleming said. \u201cShe was an excellent leader in this project. When I last left off with Abby, she was writing thank you notes\u201d to people who supported the food drive. Sodality\u2019s projects are entirely youth-led, Fleming said. \u201cThe club aims to foster a habit of service in its participants, and to really equip them with the skills and confidence they need to take a good deed from idea to successful conclusion.\u201d Sodality is not limited to Our Lady of Fatima.
