Young Men's Service League Impact Frisco Chapter Joins Holy Family School for a Weekend Transformation

They may be young and inexperienced but the men of Young Men's Service League's Impact Frisco Chapter believe in serving others in need. This weekend, along with their moms, they will be dedicating their time to transform McKinney's Holy Family School. It is a union brought about by the two organizations dedication to make a difference in their community.

 

Holy Family School was founded in 1951 with a mission. The school simply wanted "to offer the highest quality childcare and learning environment for Collin County's diverse population without financial bias" at a time when many low income families were struggling to make a living wage and find affordable, reliable and trustworthy child care.

 

Fast-forward fifty years to 2001 and Young Men's Service League was started in Plano, Texas with the objective of initiating and encouraging young men and their mothers to pursue philanthropic involvement in their community while providing an opportunity to enhance mother/son relationships. In 2010, National YMSL initiated a weekend each year where all of the members and their sons, in chapters across the United States, work on a project to give back to their community. The goal is to make a transformational change to the chosen philanthropy while developing a young man's heart for serving others throughout his life. The weekend is called, Ultimate Gift. Sophomore, Ben Stanislav, described it this way, "sometimes life is about what you give versus what you get and Ultimate Gift is my opportunity to come together with other young men and their moms to learn what servant leadership is really all about".

 

In a group that is commonly referred to as the "I" or "me" generation, the YMSL Impact Frisco Chapter does not live up to that stereotype. This weekend the projects will range from painting, landscaping, carpeting, laying concrete, building classroom storage, building a shed, replacing playground mulch and electrical work. Where they lack experience, their moms come along side them to teach and assist in the project as well as volunteers from the community who specialize in these areas. Between Saturday at 9AM and Sunday at noon, the volunteers will log an estimated 408 hours of service to Holy Family School with approximately 204 participants.

 

Through the work of these volunteers, the benefits will be considerable to the students and faculty but the community will also be impacted. A safe, cost-effective school for parents to leave their pre-schoolers will allow parents to become income producers and provide for their families. Holy Family School was built on the grace and giving of the community and will continue to be a place where Collin County's most "at risk" demographic will be served throughout the year. Holy Family School and Young Men's Service League may have been started five decades apart but their goals to serve and make a difference were always in alignment.

Young Men's Service League Impact Frisco Chapter Joins Holy Family School for a Weekend Transformation

They may be young and inexperienced but the men of Young Men's Service League's Impact Frisco Chapter believe in serving others in need. This weekend, along with their moms, they will be dedicating their time to transform McKinney's Holy Family School. It is a union brought about by the two organizations dedication to make a difference in their community.

 

Holy Family School was founded in 1951 with a mission. The school simply wanted "to offer the highest quality childcare and learning environment for Collin County's diverse population without financial bias" at a time when many low income families were struggling to make a living wage and find affordable, reliable and trustworthy child care.

 

Fast-forward fifty years to 2001 and Young Men's Service League was started in Plano, Texas with the objective of initiating and encouraging young men and their mothers to pursue philanthropic involvement in their community while providing an opportunity to enhance mother/son relationships. In 2010, National YMSL initiated a weekend each year where all of the members and their sons, in chapters across the United States, work on a project to give back to their community. The goal is to make a transformational change to the chosen philanthropy while developing a young man's heart for serving others throughout his life. The weekend is called, Ultimate Gift. Sophomore, Ben Stanislav, described it this way, "sometimes life is about what you give versus what you get and Ultimate Gift is my opportunity to come together with other young men and their moms to learn what servant leadership is really all about".

 

In a group that is commonly referred to as the "I" or "me" generation, the YMSL Impact Frisco Chapter does not live up to that stereotype. This weekend the projects will range from painting, landscaping, carpeting, laying concrete, building classroom storage, building a shed, replacing playground mulch and electrical work. Where they lack experience, their moms come along side them to teach and assist in the project as well as volunteers from the community who specialize in these areas. Between Saturday at 9AM and Sunday at noon, the volunteers will log an estimated 408 hours of service to Holy Family School with approximately 204 participants.

 

Through the work of these volunteers, the benefits will be considerable to the students and faculty but the community will also be impacted. A safe, cost-effective school for parents to leave their pre-schoolers will allow parents to become income producers and provide for their families. Holy Family School was built on the grace and giving of the community and will continue to be a place where Collin County's most "at risk" demographic will be served throughout the year. Holy Family School and Young Men's Service League may have been started five decades apart but their goals to serve and make a difference were always in alignment.
