FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) —
Chris Grey is making an attempt to provide youngsters all through Exeter one thing he did not have as a toddler — HOPE. Rising up, he says his household had no cash, no meals, and no garments.
“I do not need that for anyone,” he stated. “We’ve to provide them some hope.”
He noticed a necessity in Exeter and knew he needed to do one thing. That is why he began a toy drive three years in the past in partnership with native non-revenue, “Driving four a Cause.” Within the first yr, he was capable of assist 26 youngsters in want. Final yr, he was capable of assist fifty eight youngsters. This yr, he is already discovered sponsors for eighty youngsters, with a dream variety of 300.
“If I have been to succeed in the 300 mark, it might imply the world to me. It will give me the power to proceed all through all the yr, constructing a everlasting emergency providers division right here in Exeter for all who’re hungry and chilly.”
He is hoping to get nearer to that quantity this weekend at a fundraising occasion at Rock Yard Tavern in Exeter. It is Saturday, November 18th from four-8pm.
