L-EMS student recovers from ‘mystery illness’ and then gives back to community
Sam and Sisters
Sam Endres, 14 (center), and her sisters, Haley, 17 (left), and Victoria, 9, work on putting together breakfast bags for Family Life Outreach Ministries at their Lugoff home on Tuesday afternoon. The bags consist of prepackaged cereal, a fruit cup and milk. The bags are included with lunches put together by Family Life Outreach’s Brian and Roberta Mayes and delivered primarily in the Camden area. Mayes said the girls took over assembling the breakfast bags after discovering what he and his wife were doing several weeks ago. Haley came up with the idea of enlivening the plain paper bags with messages, such as “Smile Everyday.” (Martin L. Cahn/C-I)
On a recent Tuesday afternoon, 14-year-old Lugoff-Elgin Middle School (L-EMS) student Samantha “Sam” Endres and her sisters, Haley, 17, and Victoria, 9, put together some of 300 or so breakfast bags waiting to be picked up by Family Life Outreach Ministries, headed by their across the street neighbor in Lugoff, Brian Mayes. The girls volunteered to start putting together the bags about a week earlier.
