Kids Are Taught To Say No To Strangers, But Taking Food From This Lady Is A Good Idea

This grandmother from  in Grays Harbor County, Phyllis Shaughnessy, has been getting up early every morning this summer to deliver lunches to low-income children.

Phyllis describes the county as “a depressed area with no business, no industry- there’s no work.”

With a desire to bring hope and food the children in her area, Phyllis started a non-profit called Green Lantern Lunches. This summer she raised enough money and mobilized enough volunteers to deliver 200 sack lunches per day. Incredible!

Shaughnessy doesn’t complain about her new daily routine. “We’re all put on this earth to do something,” she said , “Better to give than to take.”
