Chase Neyland-Square is our week’s inspiration! This young man loves to give, and it shows. Young people can make a difference in the world, no matter their age.

Chase is a student at Port Allen Middle School in Port Allen, Louisiana.  He helps run “PAMs pantry,” a closet filled with clothes, shoes, hygiene products and more for kids in need. “I have a heart for giving,” Chase shares with Good Morning America (GMA).

“My favorite part about helping with the pantry is getting types of clothes and sorting them out to give to various people. It makes me feel good because I know that I can make a difference in my school,” Chase says.

Principal, Jessica Major, adds, “We really want the kids to feel like they have somewhere to go when they need something. We only have 215 kids so we’re able to get to know them really well…and try to help them where we can.” Chase helps organize the pantry while the school staff and principal hand out the items discreetly.

Chase’s mom tells GMA that her son also hosts community dinners for the elderly, and donates socks to the homeless. His mother shares, “He seems to have a great passion for people. It makes me proud because we’re very blessed and I always encourage him to bless others.” What an incredible example and family. The Square family shows us a fantastic way to teach our children about serving others through their ongoing community initiatives.
