The Real Life Heroes Of OMA: Ranger Academy
The unfortunate events of the COVID-19 pandemic have put a lot of people across the country out of work leaving them worried about how they are going to afford their necessities. Never before has the Food Bank seen such high numbers of families in need. They have already lost donations of over 188,000 pounds of food to help out, which leaves them worried about the holiday season. Every holiday season, they need at least 25% more food to keep up with the demand.
When the kids in training at OMA: Ranger Academy found out about this they became the heroes that the community needed and stepped up to help out. With their Sensei Mike O’Laskey leading the way, these rangers in training began their mission to get supplies. They did everything in their power to beg, borrow, and barter to make sure everyone has food on their plate this holiday season.
These heroes are just 3 weeks into their mission and are already crushing their goals. Their deadline is October 17th, giving them enough time to make sure they collect food for every family in need. They have already collected thousands of dollars worth of essentials. No family will go without:
- Mac and cheese
- Dry goods
- Canned essentials
- And so much more!
Mike believes in teaching his students the skills they need to become real-life heroes. He has taught them that the stronger their skills become the more responsibility they have to help out their community. While growing up, Mike was always taught that a true warrior is one who is a pillar for the community.
