Every Monday two dedicated friends, Allison Luu and Victoria Tores, drive their children from Arcadia to Buena Park to volunteer at Giving Children Hope. These two families drive a distance of 30 miles, sometimes taking an hour to get to GCHope to serve needy families. The kids – Ethan (13), Zachary (11), Kyle (11), and Taylor (9) – are on summer vacation and have selflessly chosen to give back to the community during their time off from school.
The Luu and Tores families originally connected with GCHope for a school service project and haven’t stopped volunteering since. Allison Luu says she loves bringing the kids here to volunteer because they are learning that volunteering is about much more than getting praise and affirmation from others. She wants them to understand the heart of serving others and hopes it will be an integral part of their lives.
GCHope is so thankful for the Luu and Tores families’ dedication and love for serving vulnerable children and families across the street and around the world.
