The Allen Lima Leadership Youth Class is learning how to make an impact in the community that they live in.  Friday is the class’s Impact Tour, where they hear from different United Way Agencies about what they do for the residents in Allen County.   As part of the class, the students will have to create their own community impact project, and in the spring the Lima Rotary members will vote on the best project, which will win a $2,500 grant to get it started.   So, Friday’s tour gives the students a chance to see how different agencies can help people in the area.  The first stop on the tour was the West Ohio Food Bank to hear about services the food bank and Goodwill Easter Seals have to offer.
