FHS Student Organizes Donation Drive to Help Children in Need

Over the last few months, many local families, businesses, and organizations have felt the devastating blows from the COVID-19 pandemic. Families have lost loved ones, their livelihoods, and fear and anxiety has taken hold of many. Despite the darkness, Frenship High School student Kai Langehennig is working to spread positivity by focusing on helping those in need.

On Saturday, July 25, Langehennig will hold a donation drive to benefit the Texas Boys Ranch and Buckner’s Children and Family Services. Both organizations play crucial roles in assisting with foster and adoption, providing resources to strengthen families, and empower children to be successful and reach their potential.

The incoming FHS senior is hoping to gather supplies such as toiletries, clothes, books, craft supplies, summer activities/games, and other items the children and families can use.

“I want to help Texas Boys Ranch and Buckner’s because of how much they help the community and provide many kids with guidance to adulthood,” said Langehennig. “A donation is one small step to being able to spread kindness, but the ability to help others at all times is truly priceless.”

This donation drive will serve as Langehennig’s Eagle Scout project. He says giving back and the need to always help others is an important part of being in the Boy Scouts of America.

“I hope this allows others to realize that despite the very odd circumstances that this world is facing right now, that we have the ability to make an impact on another’s day, week, month, or even their life,” he said.
