Journey of Hope Donates $1,400 to American Red Cross for Missouri Flood Relief
Four Ladue Horton Watkins High School students are helping people around the world with their non-profit group, Journey of Hope.
Jimmy Gu (12), Losan Huang (12), Kevin Tang (11), and Rachel Tang (11) started the organization with the mission of helping orphaned children in Daliang Shan, China, receive a good education and escape the cycle of poverty.
Most recently, the group raised and donated more than $1,400 to the American Red Cross for Missouri flood relief.
The donation will help provide meals, shelter, and critical relief items to families affected by late-July flooding in the region.
Previous Journey of Hope initiatives include providing medical supplies to St. Louis-area hospitals during the pandemic and contributing to the relief efforts following hurricanes Florence and Harvey.
