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!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
-Personal experience and updates of Friday events
-Reports of the tutoring
-Awareness of needs for resources
-Success stories and pictures of kids
Ways to make it better...

Increase the revenue and number of volunteers
Volunteer & I visited and ate a meal with the young people learning about their interests and involvement with the other kids in attendance. As a former counselor, I find listening to be a gift to all ages.
