On Monday, April 11, 2016, Rising Stars Scholars volunteered in the sixth annual Long Island Lutheran High School Food Drive on their Brookville, NY campus. Rising Stars student athletes helped pack over 300,000 food packets in order to feed 500 children both locally and globally every day for one year. The meals we helped pack are nutritionally balanced to prevent malnutrition. The following quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. reflects the spirit of the efforts of the Rising Stars student volunteers showing that kids can make a difference in the world.
“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”~Martin Luther King, Jr.
