Steve Richard Helps High School Student Meet Her Challenge to Feed 500 Families for Thanksgiving

Nashville, TN (November 18, 2003) Force MP Entertainment’s Steve Richard heard of a young high school student’s plight to feed 500 families for Thanksgiving and knew he wanted to help.  Richard made a donation himself and is reaching out to his fellow artists and the public to add their contributions as well.  His current Power Source HIT song “80 Acre Church” coincidently is the perfect backdrop for this outreach.

Elaine Odum, a young lady from Overland Park, KS, just outside of Kansas City, MO decided to accept a challenge on faith. While attending a Christian youth camp she was asked if she wanted to accept a challenge. The instructions were in a sealed envelope and the young woman had no idea of what she was agreeing until she opened the envelope. To her surprise the note inside said, “Feed 500 families for Thanksgiving this year.”  So Elaine set out to pursue her mission.  Right now Elaine is 1900.00 away from her goal and Steve Richard is appealing to his fans and fellow artists to pitch in and help.  

“I am so humbled at what Elaine is doing. She is a very special young lady to accept this challenge and then carry it out with so much faith. I hope that I can help her make a difference in the lives of our brothers and sisters who are in need this holiday season and throughout the year,” commented Richard.

You can make a difference in the life of someone else by sending a small donation. A non-profit organization called In His Service, which is a 501-C3 Foundation is collecting money on Elaine’s behalf.
