Over 50,000 kids nationwide made a difference with Loukoumi Saturday for National Make A Difference Day. The Loukoumi Make A Difference Foundation Good Deed bus left at 9am that day and embarked on Good Deed Tour with stops at The Westchester Children’s Museum (where kids engaged in a discussion about making a difference in the Make A Difference With Loukoumi Exhibit and donated books to children in need. Author Nick Katsoris also read the new Loukoumi book. The environmentally themed Loukoumi Saves A Park will be released on Earth Day April 2018), The Rye Nature Center (where kids helped with the environment by clean up the center grounds, wood chipping and other activities), and Fordham University where the kids made caring cards and collected donations for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as part of our national project. Funds raised will sponsor a literacy program and the Loukoumi Foundation treatment room at the Hospital.

The final stop was the annual Good Deed Celebration sponsored by Holy Trinity Church in New Rochelle and The Loukoumi Foundation where over 25 schools, youth groups and individuals showcased their good deed projects for their favorite charities.
