Wheeling Township Senior & Disability Services partnered with Riley Elementary School SPIN (Supporting People in Need) on an intergenerational program, which provided seasonal art projects, prepared by the fourth and fifth grade Riley students who are members of SPIN. These handmade projects were delivered by volunteers to the homebound residents receiving Meals On Wheels from Wheeling Township.

Riley principal, Carrie McCulley, founded this special group over eight years ago, and today, teachers Melissa Zawadski and Karyn Boborci are SPIN leaders. The program serves as a partnership between government and schools helping to bring the outside world to some of our most vulnerable residents; a service that exemplifies Wheeling Township's mission, "Neighbors Helping Neighbors."
