After a conversation with his parents, Ty, a fifth-grader in Treasureland, felt compelled to help feed people who were hungry. He decided to raise money to buy and make sandwiches and serve them to hungry people living on the streets. He asked people for donations and raised over $100. Ty told his Sunday School teacher, Lori Elliott, that he thought that he would bless people through his actions but was surprised when they in turn said to him, "God bless you."
Ty shared his experience at Treasureland and it sparked a student led discussion of how they could help people in need.
