Evidently, when 7-year-old William Lourcey puts his mind to something - that something gets accomplished.
No wonder, really. The kid’s a prodigy Mensa member so he’s got smarts on his side. He also has determination.
Lourcey, of Fort Worth, organized a charitable group called Friends Reaching Our Goals, or FROGs — hey, the boy might be a 7-year-old genius but he’s still a 7-year-old boy — that helps put food on the tables of hungry people in Tarrant County.
During the fall, FROGs raised $3,000 for the Tarrant Area Food Bank, and that money provided 12,000 meals, during a campaign called Hits and Kicks. Sponsors donated $1 for every hit a FROG registered during a softball game and $1 for every goal scored in soccer, so these guys are the rare combination of smart-jock.
Now Lourcey and his 10 amphibious friends are in the midst of a food drive, again for the Tarrant Area Food Bank. This drive seems a bit more straightforward — donate a can of food and no one gets outsmarted.
Way to go, William, you have a good head on your shoulders.
