This is a wonderful organization started by kids for kids! The founder is a 14-year-old girl and her two brothers and sister. Their story is inspirational and the difference they have made in the past couple of years has been simply amazing especially considering their tender young ages! They were able to make a difference during the COVID-19 pandemic by organizing service projects that could be done from home and also pivoted to social-distanced opportunities. My organization has been fortunate enough to receive support from them for the past couple of years and we feel so blessed to have them be part of our community! They give me hope for the future.
