The Central Region Green Team volunteered at Give Kids The World in Kissimmee, Florida. Team captain, Matt Franz said, “We helped out in Nancy’s Kitchen serving breakfast, carrying trays, and interacting with the guests staying on the GKTW campus. It was a great experience being able to do something as simple as carrying someone’s tray to their table and showing them that people they’ve never met before care about them. Just the few hours our team spent helping out made a huge difference for a lot of people”
