Volunteer teens from Long Beach to plant garden for needy families
Honoring Global Youth Service Day, teens from the nonprofit LIME will visit a Long Beach preschool this Saturday to plant a vegetable garden that will feed needy local children. Volunteer spots are still available.
“As a teen, volunteer projects are plentiful, but very few teach kindness and leave a lasting impression,”
The Precious Lamb Garden project, like all LIME Compassion Projects, focuses on children and young adults by providing them with food, clean water, education and health care. Last Christmas, LIME distributed boxes of food to the homes of local needy families, giving teen volunteers the chance to interact with the people receiving fresh fruit, vegetables, and canned goods.
LIME is still seeking teens from 13-18 to help build and plant the garden this Saturday, which will take place from 8:30 to 4:30 pm in Long Beach. The nonprofit is developing a slate of Compassion Projects for teens, which will be announced at www.limeworks.org. Interested teens and volunteers can also follow LIME on Twitter at @LIME_works, visit LIME on Facebook, and contact Lindsey Walkemeyer-Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for or get more info on upcoming projects.
LIME is an award-winning Long Beach charity dedicated to teaching and extending compassion to youth both locally and globally. The nonprofit has helped build a life-empowerment center in the Sudan, provided crisis funding for pregnant teens in Long Beach, and fed orphans in a remote region of the Philippines. LIME focuses on projects that not only help people in need, but teach ongoing compassion to volunteers. Info about LIME can be found at www.limeworks.org, and by following the nonprofit on Twitter at @LIME_works.
