Members of the Toledo Chapter of The Links, Inc. hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, January 9 to open the Links L.O.V.E. Hygiene Cabinet and Clothing Closer at Elle P. Stewart Academy for Girls.

“This event is part of the Toledo (OH) Chapter of The Links, Incorporated
12-month celebration highlighting their charter members and the 50-year
legacy of leadership, service and friendship,” said Links President Erin Baker.

The hygiene closet was installed last year giving Stewart students access to personal items donated by club members. The clothing closet, just opened this week, contains dozens of school uniforms in sizes for kindergarten to sixth grade students.

According to Baker, the ribbon cutting was in recognition of charter member Marietta Leverette’s “commitment and service” and her efforts in the St. Michael’s in the Hill’s Echo Shop that closed in 2003 after years of providing monetary donations to various service agencies, to churches for improvements and to agencies for education grants.
