Categories: Life Stories

What do you get when you cross a big heart with youthful enthusiasm and a call to serve? Over 150 sacked lunches from an incredible 9-year-old activist. Dusty Liulay was told he was too young to volunteer in a local Portland soup kitchen, so instead of giving up, this young man decided to start a new endeavor. “Dusty’s Sacks of Hope” is dedicated to feeding hundreds of the homeless every week! In just a short time, his GoFundMe profile has collected over $2,600 in donations. Go Dusty, go!

Around 100 homeless individuals in the Portland, Oregon area are fed each week thanks to this kind-hearted young man.

When Dusty Liulay, an inspired activist with a heart to help the homeless, volunteered to work at a soup kitchen, he was told he was too young to participate.

You can imagine his disappointment, as he and his family have beenvolunteering at soup kitchens since he was five years old. No matter, the inspiring youngster turned this roadblock into an exciting venture and started “Dusty’s Sacks of Hope” to help the homeless in his own way.

With the assistance of a few volunteers, Dusty delivers nearly 150 brown bag lunches to homeless individuals in Portland, Oregon every week.

KOIN News reports (above) that his cousin, Caelie Agosta, helps with the fundraising to pay for the Sacks of Hope. In addition, their GoFundMe page (which has already raised more than $2,600 in one month!) allows individual from around the world to get involved.

According to Dusty and his family, every $100 collected can make about 120 lunches – and no donation amount is too small! $2 will buy a loaf of bread for someone cold and hungry on the street.


Like Hailey Fort, the 9-year-old activist intent on building tiny homes for the homeless, this young individual is an inspiring example of all that can be accomplished when you set your mind to a task.
