I wanted to share with you, my story about how I met the amazing and wonderful founder of The Green Team Ashley Benton!!
Ashley came across my news feed one day on facebook, and what caught my eye was the title, which read "Greensboro woman feeds the homeless every week". I read the article and was so inspired about what she was doing, that I sent her a friend request and started following her every move:)
Her daily quotes and stories inspired me! I looked forward to reading about all the wonderful things that she was doing for her community. She actually inspired me so much, that I decided I wanted to go to Greensboro and serve along side this amazing woman, that I now call my friend. This past April, I got on a plane a flew from Toronto, Canada to Greensboro. The entire week-end was just unbelievable.
She and her team not only serve and prepare food, but they serve their community with love and conversation, clothing, and personal hygiene items, they prepare little packages that are made with love and care. They provide hugs to those that need it, smiles to everyone and always a good word! She is one of the most dedicated and committed women, that I have the pleasure of knowing. She inspires me to live my life to the best of my ability everyday, and serve those that are in need.
Am so proud of the work that she does, and am looking forward to getting back to Greensboro to stand along side The Green Team again in the near future!
