You empowered young people, like Lulu Fan, to tackle issues in their local community and help those in need. Lulu is one of 15 National Youth Advisory Board members and 55 Local Youth Advisory Board members in various cities serving their community because of your commitment and passion to this youth-led movement.
You united communities in giving and service during the 2016 Service Blitz. More than 250 volunteers served 13 charities, and throughout the season your community generated more than $118,000 in cash and food items for 158 local charities!"Being a part of the National Youth Advisory Board has equipped me with the leadership abilities and the knowledge about hunger and poverty that are integral to inciting a movement towards tackling hunger. I am excited to unite the community in a spirit of service and giving to create hope for those in need. - Lulu, Columbia, South Carolina"
Your gift helped those in need by mobilizing the Souper Bowl of Caring community to generate $10.4 million in cash and food items for 5,091 local charities across the nation. You are a part of the team continuing to drive the effort Rev. Dr. Brad Smith started in Columbia nearly 27 years ago.
Today, we celebrate you for your commitment and generosity!
