Keller chapter honors outstanding young man and mother-son for their service to the community

The Keller chapter of Young Men’s Service League (YMSL) celebrated its service to the community, announcing that it has served Keller philanthropies and national philanthropies with a total of 4,819 hours in the past year.

The chapter also honored Keller High School senior Sam Loeffler and mother-son duo Brittainy and Ty Fink for their outstanding service.

Loeffler received the YMSL Spirit of Service Award, serving 201 hours in four years. The Finks received the Mother-Son Philanthropy Award, serving a total of 124.5 hours during four years of service. These awards recognize and honor YSML’s most outstanding volunteers and the impact they make on their community and beyond.

“The Keller chapter of YMSL is incredibly proud of each of our moms and young men for their time, hard work, and dedication to serving our community,” said Shannon Spock, president of the Keller chapter. “Serving is not only a way for our members to connect with the Keller community, but it is also a special time for mothers and sons to bond and to instill the importance of serving, something we hope will last a lifetime.”

Some of the projects the Keller chapter has engaged with include: Whitley Place with 1,056 hours; Community Storehouse with 726 hours; Operation Gratitude with 722 hours; Christ’s Haven with 537 hours; and Keller Public Library with 384.5 hours.

Throughout its four-year program, YMSL teaches comprehensive leadership and life skills to develop young men to be the confident and compassionate leaders of tomorrow. In addition, it offers moms service opportunities and time together with their sons to grow their relationship and to instill in their sons a heart of service.

At the end of the 4-year program, each young man will have served no less than 75 hours to those in need in his community. The majority will be served as a mother/son team.  

Nationally, YMSL represents over 10,000 moms and 11,000 young men as part of more than 100 chapters across 16 states. One hundred YMSL chapters combined should result in more than 400,000 volunteer hours for this service year.
