Star of Hope

March 31, 2017

The Parkview Baptist Church sent a mission team over to Haiti this past February to benefit the Star of Hope Foundation.  Small groups through the church were asked to stuff a suitcase full of goodies, such as school supplies, books, toothpaste, tooth brushes, toys, and much more, to be sent with the team over to Haiti.  When I caught word of this, I instantly thought that it would be neat to introduce this to my Foundations of Leadership class.  Not knowing how they would respond, they surprised me with instantly jumping on board and wanting to volunteer.  That very next week, we had a full suitcase ready to board the plane to Haiti. As a class, we came together to aid children in another country, all the while becoming aware of how important it is to serve others near or far.
