1,000 Jars of Peanut Butter
Drew Page of Paris High School Football recently did SportsLeader very proud. He and some friends of his decided that they wanted to help the people in Haiti. Their solution: Peanut Butter.
Drew took it upon himself to approach local businesses in his hometown of Paris Kentucky and ask them if he could put up a poster and some crates to collect peanut butter for the victims of the earthquake. 7 businesses said go for it. He then went home with his brother and enlisted his help to make posters and gather some stuff to get the job done. After 4 hours they brought the materials to the businesses and less than one month later ... they collected 1,000 jars of peanut butter.
Drew said, "Every night I would pray that the Lord would make this work. He answered my prayers."
Together with his friends from other towns they collected a total of 10,000 jars ... all being delivered to the Red Cross for them to ship to Haiti.
Coaches - sometimes it is easy to get discouraged ... thinking that "my kids just don't get it ..." Well as you can see - Drew got it!
God bless, Lou
