Hi, our names Ella Melvin, Alli Jones, and Emily Gossett and we our on the U13 Premier/EGSL team. For the RAGE leadership community service project we decided to collect cans for the Open Heart Kitchen. We started thinking of this idea during the holiday season. We chose to do this project because not everybody is as fortunate to receive the meals that we receive daily.
We decided to collect cans from our soccer team, family, friends, and neighbors. We started out asking our team to bring cans to practice to help us in achieving our goal of 100 cans. After asking for cans from them we went around the neighborhood and asked for cans and told them about our cause for the Open Heart Kitchen. On our journey around the neighborhood we came across a worker at the Open Heart Kitchen she said that she was very thankful for our work and that people will be very thankful for food we have brought in. We ended up collecting more cans than our goal of one hundred.
We learned a lot from this experience. To add, we also had a great time gathering and planning this idea to help others in need. We were very glad we chose to do this because it made us happy to give to others. In the future we hope that you consider this idea as well.
