1-Lani-Feeds-Homeless2-1024x682We are so proud of high school student and participant of our Kids on a Mission program, Lani Wolf, for leading a successful event for the Embry Rucker Shelter. From beginning to end, Lani spearheaded the project with direction from a Touching Heart coach. Lani drew up a work plan, came up with her own budget, implemented cost-saving measures, organized a team of volunteers and planned all of the logistics. Touching Heart initially challenged Lani to organize a team to make 60 lunches for the homeless, but Lani wanted to take it even further! She and her team successfully made 90 bagged lunches for the Embry Rucker Shelter. Each meal also contained a hand-written note made by the kids who volunteered for the event. They featured kind greetings and words of encouragement. It was a wonderfully successful event and further evidence of the impact just one young person can make!
