Graduating teen throws pizza party for homeless women, children


HOUSTON (KTRK) – A Texas high school grad is a great example of giving back.

Instead of her own party to celebrate her accomplishment, Leanne Carrasco wanted to make a difference.

So, she threw a pizza party for homeless women and kids at the ‘Star of Hope center’ in Houston providing dozens of pizzas and hundreds of personal hygiene bags.

Carrasco says she wanted to make sure they knew that someone cared.

Well, Carrasco is amazing too!

She plans to study nursing at Briar Cliff University in Iowa.
