Lauren And Steven Seroyer Launch Confidential Food Pantry
Two Georgia teens are making national headlines for their good deeds.
Twins Lauren and Steven Seroyer launched a confidential food pantry called CARE Closet for underserved teens at their Gwinnett County, high school.
CARE stands for “Community Assistance and Resource Effort.” Lauren came up with the idea after a heartbreaking conversation with one of her own classmates.
“He said he was hungry, but couldn’t bring snacks outside from home. So, that meant nothing from the home could leave the house. He just had breakfast at home and maybe a dinner when he got back home and the rest of the day he just had to go without.
I was shocked because I’ve been to Atlanta to help feed the homeless, but never thought someone in my own school would be going through this,” Lauren told FOX 5’s Portia Bruner in April.
They then went on to receive a $25,000 grant from The United Way…
and Lauren was awarded the 2016 McDonald’s 365Black Community Choice award for CARE Closet’s philanthropic efforts.
Props to the Seroyer twins for making a difference.
