My name is Abbie Faber and I am an Ambassador for Threads of Care. When the founder of Threads of Care, Zach Wolfson, asked me to be an Ambassador the beginning of this past school year, I thought the idea was fantastic. Teens helping other teens — what an incredible opportunity! Service is a big part of my life, and I was honored to be asked to be a part of this effort.

I am active in several other activities, so although I was not able to be as involved as I would have wanted this year, it’s enough to see that high school students can do great things.

Being able to say I was a founding member of “Threads of Care” makes me very proud.

We have expanded the organization into many other high schools in Williamson County, and possibly farther than that.

We have also accomplished so much as a group. We collect so much clothing and shoes for people in need, it’s astounding that the entire foundation is run by high school students. We are still currently collecting clothes, but in our last pickup, we collected more than 1,000 articles of clothing. As impressive as that sounds, that doesn’t even count all of the other clothing and shoe drives we held during this year across multiple schools in our county. Threads of Care has helped me make several new friends from other schools, and I enjoy it more and more every time we give back to our community. It will always make me feel like I am doing something good, and I will continue to encourage anyone to be a part of it. I am so proud of what Threads of Care has done this year, and I am excited to see how it will grow next year.
