Live to Give: Little Stewpot Stewards – Caring for the Homeless

For his 6th birthday, April Gorman’s son surprised her when, in place of toys and games, he asked for socks to help homeless people he had seen on Dallas streets. When he gave out the socks one morning at The Stewpot, those who received them showered smiles on the young Gorman. That inspired him and his mother to begin raising money to buy more clothing for the needy.

Now, two years later, dozens of elementary school-aged children have become philanthropists. Named the Little Stewpot Stewards, the children raise money through lemonade stand receipts and selling donuts. The Exchange Club of Lake Highlands contributed $150 to further the Little Stewpot Stewards efforts to raise awareness and ease the challenges of poverty and homelessness.

Established by First Presbyterian Church, The Stewpot is the sole meal provider at The Bridge, Dallas’ homeless assistance center, serving 1,500 to 2,000 meals every day.

This month, we are pleased to shine the light on many of the servant leaders making our community better and stronger. And we do this not just also to thank them, but to inspire others to roll up their sleeves and help in some way. To learn more about #LiveToGiveThisHoliday, click here.
