Zeina Wolland LITE FM's League of Legendary Women

Meet Zeina Wolland! This week, Memorial Healthcare System & 101.5 LITE FM are honored to recognize her as this week's League of Legendary Women honoree!


Zeina was nominated by her friend and fellow volunteer, Yoleine. Read the amazing story that Yoleine submitted:

 
"Zeina is the founder of Mobile School Pantry, a local non-profit organization focused on providing nutritious food items to children and their families at Title 1 schools throughout Broward County.

MSP has been distributing food to families since 2013. Without access to food outside of school, a child’s education may take a backseat to hunger, but Z And MSP are committed to creating a future without hunger where every student has access to sufficient and nutritious food to learn, grow and thrive. She believes food is crucial for the well-being and success of all individuals and the foundation of a strong, vibrant society.
 
I’ve seen firsthand how hunger can impact a child, and how a child with a full belly has the ability to concentrate and learn with a higher level of self-esteem. With MSP, kids and families from 7 different elementary schools get to shop at distributions that are set up like a farmer’s market. 
 
With the generous contributions Z helps raise for MSP, she makes sure that distribution tables are always filled with bakery sweets, breads, canned and dried goods, as well as a variety of fresh produce, including staples like apples, bananas, oranges, potatoes, onions and so much more! 
 
Over the last 5 years, I have seen Zeina grow into an incredible wife, mother, community leader and hunger hero! It’s an overwhelming experience to see the thousands of lives Zeina has impacted, especially as the kids shout out “Mrs. Z, Mrs. Z!!!” And thank her for the goodies she provides.

She is wholehearted and self-less, never expecting a ‘thank you’ or any reward for what she does. I am proud to be part of her volunteer team and blessed to have met such a wonderful woman."

 

We reached out to Zeina and she responded:

"This is such an incredible honor and I am so grateful for this opportunity to spread awareness on Mobile School Pantry’s mission. Yoleine and all the strong, compassionate women who surround me everyday are ALL legendary women. And I’m so blessed to be among them!!!"

 

 

We need  more people in the world like YOU Zeina! Thank you for all that you do in our community & schools!
