I have chosen to demonstrate 'Servant Leadership' by hosting a Community Dinner for 100-150 members of the Westwood Community.
My name is Lauren Brown and I am a 7th grader at STEM School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. I am a member of my school’s National Junior Honor Society club. I also belong to Mountainview Christian Community Church where I was introduced to the Westwood Community. I'm excited to practice my faith in Jesus Christ by using my servant leadership abilities to make a difference serving others with grace and love.
Westwood is a 1.9 square mile neighborhood in Lakewood.
There are a large number of low-income and single-family households.
More than 90% of the students in that community are on the assisted lunch program through their schools.
Generally, those kids rely on the school for breakfast and lunch. Sometimes those are the only meals they get during the week.
I do not have any funding to put on this event; I am looking for donations in order to hold this event. Nicolo's Pizza in Highlands Ranch is donating all of the food for the meal on January 12th, so now the majority of donations I get can be given back to the community.
