Mothers are typically tremendously proud of their sons, and the mothers of the young men from the Young Men’s Service League Southlake Chapter should be especially proud. As soon as these boy read our Food Pantry Red Letter Alert, they felt compelled to spring into action.
The boys immediately organized not one, but two, food donation drives! 123 of the organization’s members participated in the first drive by bringing food and medicine contributions.
Their upcoming drive scheduled for July 10th already has over 90 members signed-up! Their two SUV’s were filled to the brim when they showed up to help at last Friday’s Grocery Giveaway. No telling how many SUV’s they will fill this next time!
YMSL members created a sign-up genius with items from our Pantry Needs List to make sure they collected the most critical items. Instead of having each individual drop the items off themself at The Food Pantry, the boys set-up a home base as one convenient drop-off location. They went above and beyond in making certain convenience would ensure the most effective and successful effort.
“We…appreciate the opportunities that GRACE creates that allows our young men to serve the community like Donation Station, Feed our Kids, and GRACEful Buys.”
While most teenage boys are constantly thinking of their own incessant appetites, these guys are working hard and making a difference to impact the epidemic of hunger in their community. YMSL Southlake’s support of Feed Our Kids and Grocery Giveaway this summer has been a rewarding service opportunity for both the young men and their mothers. GRACE is beyond grateful for the rewards we reap from the service of these exceptional young men!
