LOIS RENFRO FOUNDATION
June 14, 2011

Passionate motivation for supporting young people pulses through the veins of the volunteers of the Lois Renfro Foundation. My experience at a barbeque for the kids opened my eyes to the many ways George Brummell, his Board, and volunteers create a "space of grace" for children and teens: good food and fellowship, interactive games and conversation, sharing and living out values, and friendship in a world that can often be difficult for kids to navigate. Each month I see pictures of kids building healthy relationships, having fun in a safe place, and learning values that will deter them from the dark alleys of the street. Congratulations to the work of Lois Renfro Foundation!
