Eyewitness News volunteers at 3 organizations for Founders Day

Founders Day

All day long teams have been out working hard to give back on Founders Day. We’re volunteering at three organizations today:

Borrowed Hearts

This organization works to help kids in the foster system and the families who take them in. We had a team working here on landscaping and beautification. They also did some painting and cleaned up the building.

“It’s a big financial burden if you have a child placed with you and they came with nothing and they need a full wardrobe and all their school supplies you know you’re looking at hundreds of dollars and maybe it might not be in the budget that week. That’s why Borrowed Hearts exists so we can fill that gap and provide all the needs,” Sarah Gough, Founder said.

Little Miracles

We also had a crew at Little Miracles in Gibson County. They trimmed some of the plants and moved some rocks around to spruce things up. They help provide the necessary tools needed for children’s academic, spiritual and emotional needs.

“We also love volunteer time from people to come in and talk about jobs in the community, anything they specialize in or have a passion for, just to come in and talk to the kiddos, play football or teach them a cheer,” says Kara Hoke with Little Miracles, “All of the things are so exciting to them and we love people to come and volunteer and visit with us.”

Salvation Army of Evansville

Our team at the Salvation Army of Evansville was serving up grilled hamburgers and hotdogs! The organization serves both Vanderburgh and Warrick counties with a daily lunch program.

“It’s been a very festive time and I can’t tell you how grateful we are to your whole team. God has blessed the people these nearly 400 people we’ve served through your team and all your people so hats off to all of you,” Major Mark Turner, SW Indiana Salvation Army Coordinator said.
