Lizzie Morrison’s commitment to making a difference in the lives of others continues with her recent book drive for Esperanza-Hope for the Children, Inc. This has become an annual event for Lizzie who reaches out to her neighborhood community of Concord as well as her school community (Lawrence Academy) in Groton. This year over $1,200 was raised for Esperanza, and half of the books sold were donated by Lizzie. Proceeds from the sale will be used for community projects in the village of Flores, Honduras.
Esperanza is grateful for all the individuals and organizations who have supported us throughout the years. However, we would like to acknowledge particular people who have dedicated years of involvement such as Lizzie Morrison. Lizzie began volunteering with Esperanza when she was an elementary school student. She began visiting patients in the hospital and became an active participant as a member of a “host family” for children in need for temporary housing, prior to their return to their native country.
Lizzie has continued her active involvement by mentoring Honduran children who are here for medical treatment, raising awareness of this country which is the 2nd poorest in the Western Hemisphere and inspiring her peers to follow her leadership of making a difference in the world.
We are thankful for all the lives Lizzie has touched and will continue to impact in the years to come.
