It is #RAKLOUISVILLE DAY today!

We are always so excited to see and hear about RAKs. Here are a few early stories and hoping it will inspire you to do your own RAK.

Lainey took food platters to medical professionals who are working through this week. We thought that was an awesome idea to spread cheer! Great Idea, Lainey.

We say on Twitter that a teachers received school supplies from her Dr.’s office. So, if you know a teacher, RAK them with school supplies.

RAK Frankfort Avenue 2015

RAK Frankfort Avenue 2015

This has become one of our favorite traditions – handing out goody bags to businesses on Frankfort Ave. and paying a visit to the Firehouse down the road from our school.

Our first stop was the Firehouse which is down the road from Barret Middle School. We took extra special treats for them. Thanks Mr. & Mrs. Deeley for bringing the best for our first responders. I think they really liked us stopping by and talking to them. We had fun too.

We were hoping that they will have a really fun dinner on us!!!

 

Next, we went ahead to some of the businesses.

All of us made goody bags – they were all different but lots of fun. Some had candy and some had hot chocolate kits and it all was really festive. Anyone receiving it would be very happy!

We went on to St. Matthews to a Korean Restaurant – Charim. The owners was ecstatic that we chose to stop by and visit them.

It was the best project ever. I play soccer with the Ohio Elite Ky soccer club. On Wednesday (before Thanksgiving), we cooked and served dinner to close to 170 people at The Forgotten Louisville.

Forgotten Louisville and other organizations like this are an easy serving opportunity for teams.

Our soccer club was able to come together and bring the best ever Thanksgiving meal to everyone. We had turkeys, hams, casseroles, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, mac & cheese, green beans, corns,pies, all kinds of desserts and drinks. So many players and their family from the club came and brought food.

I asked Coach Charlie what he thought about us serving here. He thought it was a great idea. Coach Charlie, who is the Director of the club, sent an email to the entire club encouraging everyone to take part in this service project. A big Thank You Coach Charlie!

If you are on a team, I hope you will take the lead to organize a service project to do together as a team.
