“Park Place Seed Faith Project” leaders from left, Kaylee Baker, Kayla May, and Katie May. The girls collected nearly 700 items for the Food Pantry.
PINELLAS PARK - KnoSho Youth Ministries of Park Place Wesleyan Church in Pinellas Park sponsored a teen girls’ retreat Oct. 5-6, called “Love Attack.”

The purpose of the event was to inspire and challenge girls in grades six through 12 with the message that instead of attacking their peers and world with girly “cattiness,” it would be better to attack it with love.

The main message conveyed to the girls was this: keep others in their thoughts and help them out whenever possible.

At the end of the retreat, each girl was given $5 as “seed” money, as well as guidance on how to micro finance it into a larger sum to benefit local and world outreach projects – or even to come up with their own projects.

Two eighth-grade girls, Kaylee Baker and Kayla May, with the help of May's younger sister Katie May, took up the challenge and with the passion to aid hungry families, started the “Park Place Seed Faith Project.”

Just two weeks later, they had collected around 700 nonperishable items and delivered a truckload of food to the Food Pantry at Park Place. The girls had gone door-to-door with wagons collecting items and monetary donations for purchasing additional goods.

And they still have their “seed” money.
