MIMS, Fla.-- They say it takes a village.
“It’s a symbol of community and love so it warms my heart,” said Trey Gordon, Co-Founder of Hope for North Brevard.
A group of volunteers all gather in North Brevard getting ready for their next delivery.
“A lot of don’t know each other, a lot of us do but it’s pretty much putting a lot of positive in the community,” said Alicia Myrie, co-owner of H.E.R.S Salon.
Nearly 100 meals packed and ready to be served.
“There’s so much craziness in this world and we need more peace, more love,” said Marie.
“This is what we call mentoring and service but it’s eight weeks of serving meals to the elderly and to an at-risk community,” said Gordon.
“It means a lot because it shows there are some good people in the world. It’s not all bad people still,” said Antonio Carto, an 11th grader at Astronaut High School.
Good people with a familiar face.
“It’s Latavius. We got some food out here for you,” said Latavius Murray, New Orleans Saints running back and UCF Alum.
UCF Alum and NFL running back, Latavius Murray, coming home and joining the positivity.
“Titusville is my roots, my family is here. This is my blood line. So for me to come back and give back that’s what it’s all about,” said Murray.
After the meals are delivered Latavius shifts his focus to something just as important.
“I think the youth obviously is the future,” said Murray.
Being a role model to the next generation.
“Hang with them and talk with them then I think and hope they can take away something positive from it,” said Murray.
Inspiring our youth.
“I think that the more we can educate the youth the more knowledge they can gain that knowledge is power so when you are about to put the power in your own hand you can do great things,” said Murray.
All while sharing a message of unity.
“I think we all come from different places but I think we all share the same goal. That’s the live life the way you want to live. Be able to be happy. Be able to be successful,” said Murray.
At the end of the day this village is coming together to make a difference.
“Giving back to our community. Bringing more peace and positive and doing something good,” said Myrie.
