Teenagers in Durant are Hoping to Give Back to Those in Need

Posted:
DURANT -- Two teenagers in Durant are hoping to make a difference in their community by helping feed hungry families. 


Tiffany Cranford and Calee Boone plan to plant a garden of hope to help out needy families in their communities. Cranford went to a leadership conference in Washington DC, where she learned about serving her community. With the help of her friend Boone, the girls decided to plant a garden to be a good way to give back.


"If something like I feed one family from every school or every school district in Bryan county and then maybe another school district takes it on and does the same thing we could feed a lot more families. It is definitely something that I wish other schools could get into things like that or other kids even just individuals," says Cranford who is a senior at Achille High School.


The girls will be hosting a banquet for community leaders hoping to gain their support.  They hope to have the garden up and running this fall.
