Cash for Kindness: Tutoring to Make a Difference

 

In tonight in "Cash for Kindness" two sisters join forces to nominate a woman who is making a difference one student at a time.

Mrs. Luanne Raughlins is a volunteer with the Church of Hope and each week that's she brings to these students at Olympia Apartments on Troy Highway.

"She's giving these children hope for their future.  She's tutoring them, she gives them snacks that may not have at home. She's making an impact on their lives."

15 year old Morgan Walters and her 13 year old sister Hannah help tutor the students as well. But,  it was Hannah who was so moved by what was happening that she wrote me an email.

She described what started with just three students a few years ago has turned into a project  that helps nearly 100 students in the area.

"She is just a strong Christian woman and she helps tutors kids who can't get help at home." said Hannah.

We passed along 120 dollars to Hannah and her sister because we knew it would go a long way.

Morgan started things off at the Apartment complex by telling Mrs. Raughlins why we were here.

"Me and Morgan nominated you for Cash for Kindness."

Morgan followed up with how important the program is to the community. 

"You have such an impact on their lives."

"Wow"

"I don't know what to say.  God has been good to me and has allowed me to serve others and it's a blessing to do that I don't think much about it.  It's just want God has given me the chance to do." said Raughlins.

We know this cash will help her buy more snacks and supplies but we also hope it will allow her to continue her mission of teaching one of life's many lessons.

If you'd like to nominate someone for "Cash for Kindness" send an email to Vlawson@wsfa.com.
