Supporter Spotlight: Caring with Cookies!

            Faces without Places had a wonderful March Madness Event on April 6th at Willie's Sports Cafe in Kenwood on April 6th. It was made extra special by two young ladies who donated their time and effort to baking cookies to sell at the event to benefit FwP. Hue and Grace, who call their charitable baking venture "Caring with Cookies," are featured in this months Supporter Spotlight. The girls, both 10, got involved because Hue and her mother Janet have been long time supporters of Faces without Places, and good friends with Shelley, our Program and Outreach Manager. Grace is Hue's friend from school at Prince of Peace in Covington, KY. When asked why they wanted to help raise funds for children experiencing homelessness, the girls replied that they want to help other children have what they have each day. "We know how lucky we are and we want other children to be as lucky as we are too." Their proudest moment so far in their volunteer experience with FwP was "after a successful night, handing the money that we earned to Beth," our Operations and Development Coordinator. In the future, they look forward to spending their free time raising as much money as possible. These savvy young ladies are a great example to everyone, young and old. We are proud to count them as supporters and look forward to seeing the growth and learning that will occur as they continue to give back, caring with cookies and compassion. Hue & Grace will be selling cookies at FwP's booth at the Flying Pig marathon on Saturday May 4th from 11 - 3. Come on out to get some delicious cookies and say hi to the girls, and some of our dedicated board members!
