The handmade projects are delivered by township volunteers to the homebound residents receiving Wheeling Township Meals on Wheels program. In 2013, over 18,000 meals were delivered in this vital community service to our residents.

Riley Principal, Carrie McCulley, founded the SPIN program over nine years ago, and today, teachers Melissa Zawadzki and Karyn Boborci are the SPIN leaders.

This program serves as a partnership between local government and the school, helping to bring the outside world to some of our most vulnerable residents; a service that exemplifies Wheeling Township's mission, "Neighbors Helping Neighbors."

The fourth and fifth grade SPIN members were presented with certificates signed by Township Supervisor Michael B. Schroeder at an awards ceremony held on June 4.

If you are interested in following the example of the SPIN members and helping your neighbors in need, call Wheeling Township at 847-259-7730 to find out how you can volunteer your time, talents and resources.
