One of our Roby leaders, Ellie Smith, collected over 40 new and gently used coats for our Roby families. She told our FRC coordinator, Jacey Smothers, that she collected the coats by reaching out to friends from school and volleyball. Then she started calling people that were in her mom’s contact list on her phone. This is just one of the many service projects she has done in the community. Earlier this year she raised over $2500 for St. Jude. In the past she has also collected and donated shoes to the students at Roby Elementary.  We have the best students with the biggest hearts!
