Although the Sellars' are still residing in a hotel room, they are carrying on with their lives and giving back to the community that has offered them so much support.
On June 11, the Sellars' family volunteered with Concord Hospitality and Catholic Charities for a Feed the Children Fundraiser. 400+ families were helped that Tuesday by several volunteers. The groups got together to supply boxes full of non-perishable food and hygiene products to those in need. Pictures of Mark Sellars and Olivia Sellars helping at the event are in our gallery!
"A new study released this week by Feeding America found 16.1 percent, or 22,340 people, in Clark County are “food insecure,” or at risk of going hungry. In Champaign County, 14.6 percent, or 5,870 people, face the same issue. Many of them don’t qualify for federal nutrition programs and must rely on charitable assistance to meet the meal gap, according to the study." - Springfield News Sun
