There was the couple who had provided a home for 89 foster kids in seven years. And there was the elderly woman who was 18 when she went on three dates with her husband and married him on the third. They stayed married for 50 years until his death 20 years ago.
“I love old people. I love how they have all these stories. They have all these experiences, and I learn a lot from them,” said 16-year-old Rebecca Leising, a Williamsville South student.
Leising was among 10 students from all over Western New York— Olean, Dunkirk, Fredonia and more —who volunteered with the Young Christians at Work program during Holy Week. It is sponsored by the Youth and Young Adult Ministry Department of the Diocese of Buffalo.
