My project is called Roots Serves and is going to be a team of students from different schools going out to do service either once a month or every other month. In October Roots Serves packaged toiletries and water for the homeless in the wake of the big storm that swept through our state. We have been steadily distributing them to homeless people in the upstate. Our second event was a Thanksgiving meal for the residents at the Summit. We packaged 90 meals and distributed them to the individuals in the lobby. Each event has had around 20 volunteers representing numerous local high schools. Each was funded by my church and the meal was prepared by our kitchen staff who volunteered their time. I am working with Keith Grace, director of Neighborhood Focus, to try to get us involved in a Christmas party for the kids.
