I have volunteered with Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundatiion, for almost 2 years. Early on, I was able to be a part of some amazing events, including, the annual 5k, the Summer camp, the Gala, and community fairs. I love being involved in my community and I adore children, so LHTYF, has allowed me to do what I truly love. LHTYF is helping youth to learn about living healthy and thriving and that is truly an awesome contribution!!

Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundation is an awesome foundation that helps youth to learn about healthy food choices and active living through the Summer Camps and other community activities. It has also helped me as an adult to be more aware about what I eat and what to look for when buying food. I am excited about being a part of this great foundation and I am happy that there is an organization that is focusing on teaching our youth healthy habits.

I am a proud volunteer for LHTYF. I have seen first hand the positive impact this organization has on young people and it is commendable. Through the Pinnacle Youth Scholarship Fund, LHTYF is giving hope to high school students who want to go to college and become doctors, scientists, teachers, etc. I proudly donate my time and talent to this organization because not only are they helping to save children's lives by educating them about how to live healthy and strong, they are also helping to create future leaders of tomorrow.

As a board member of the Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation (LHTYF) I am proud of the contributions this young, progressive and productive organization have made in the lives of Atlanta’s underserved children. Our programs educate, inspire and assist children (and their families) with living and eating better, and taking better care of their bodies. It’s so rewarding to see children learning healthy principles and then have them share with us how they are actually practicing what they’ve learned! It’s also rewarding to help great students with their college education expenses. LHTYF is committed to continuing this important work and positively impacting our community for many years to come. I am pleased to be a part of it.

Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation, Inc., is a great non-profit organization changing the lives of children in the Atlanta area. As a volunteer for this organization I have seen the positive impact of programs such as the "Gardens are for Kids" and the "Healthy Kids Summer Camp" empower children to begin healthier habits. Educating children early about healthy foods and fitness equips them with tools necessary to lead healthier lives. It gives me great pleasure to see the excitement on children's faces and the joy of learning how to plant, grow and harvest healthy foods. I hope that Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation continues to get community support so they can keep up this awesome and important work.

Working with Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundation allowed me to give back to the community in a very positive and uplifting way. LHTYF is not only a great organization, it is ran by great people who understand the health needs of young people. LHTYF is creating an atmosphere where the young people are learning to eat healthy for the rest of their lives. The kids are able to take what they have learned back into the homes, neighborhoods and communities. LHTYF is an organization that I would work for again and again.

The programs are designed not to just do or provide for children but to influence them to make healthy choices by getting them involved in the projects themselves.

Live Healthy and Thrive Youth Foundation plays an active role in the community. The programs that they have to help kids learn how to garden, teach children about nutrition and then end each year with a celebration and scholarship to help young adults go to college are a few reason to support their charity. I greatly appreciate the actions they take in the Atlanta community to make a difference.
