Members of the Mountaineer Boys and Girls club in Morgantown, West Virginia, wanted to help other children who were less fortunate than them, so they started creating Welcome Boxes for kids from troubled families who are separated from their parents.
The group filled shoeboxes with age-appropriate items, like night-lights, snacks and games that the kids can take with them to their new homes.
The Boys and Girls club members enjoyed being able to brighten the lives of others with their work, knowing that the kids who receive the boxes will be soothed during bumpy times.
And, the members aren’t done. They plan on continuing to put together these Welcome Boxes in order to touch as many lives as possible.
