Little Helpers, helping children help others.
Little Helpers was formed in December of 2010 by Tran Smith of Pittsford and Memphis moms Kristen Terrell Landsgaard and Pat Mitchell Worley. The program is designed to help young people understand the value of volunteering, recognize the blessings in their lives, broaden their community perspective and feel the sense of accomplishment received from lending a helping hand. The ultimate goal of the program is to raise confident children who see giving back to the community as a normal aspect of their lives.
