Teens want to take patronage over widows and lonely elderly people in the church, then organize feeding the homeless in Sacramento, and, finally, to collect humanitarian aid for one of the poorest countries of the world. Where this collected help it will go – not known yet. They will identify a point on the map as the destination.
