“Zach’s Sacks” from Brooke Haggerty is the November, 2022 winner, from Hey Westminster!
Brooke shares that “Zach’s Sacks is a brand-new organization started in honor of my late son, Zachary Wolfe Pressman. Zachary was tragically killed in a drunk driving crash on February 1, 2016. He was a giver, a lover of all people and one of the kindest souls to walk this earth. To honor him we will fill sacks of all kinds to help those in need. The sack could be a brown bag with water and cookies, it could be a school lunch. It could be luggage for a foster child or a handbag of toiletries or it could be a backpack with socks, t-shirts and underwear. You see, there really is no limit to what a Zach’s Sack can be. It’s all about the love and the connection of one person handing it to another person. Is there anything more precious than connection? Help us to connect to those in need, to those who a sack of love makes all the difference.”
We’re excited to partner with Brooke and her network with our monthly $1,000 grant, to help honor her son’s memory by giving back to youth in our community!
