The Legacy Initiative, a community partner organization based in American Fork, UT, get volunteers together the first Saturday of every month to, “…fight hunger, provide humanitarian aid, and educate people through community partnerships not just for today, but for our future.” Since May their monthly event has been a Feed the Streets Outreach. They have groups of volunteers come together to make over 900 bean and cheese burritos each month. Then they distribute on the streets of Salt Lake City.
The Legacy Initiative is simply looking to provide opportunities for people to help one another in the community. They want people to know that they can make a difference, even with the little spare time they have. It’s important that the Legacy Initiative be a part of the community because they want to serve their brothers and sisters. As Tedd Ellis, president of the Initiative, puts it, “…in the end we are all the same. There is no difference between us and them. It’s all about we.”
If you would like to volunteer with the Legacy Initiative their next event is being held on August 6th, 2016. They will be making burritos starting at 8:30am and hitting the streets to distribute around 1:00pm.
