Serving Other Souls

Those words not only name us, but they tell you our mission and goal for this world!

In the spring of 2011, students of Franklin Regional Middle School conducted two service projects to support the relief funds of the Japanese Tsunami and the tornadoes in Hempfield, PA.  In exit interviews with the students, it was striking how how many students spoke of a strong desire to do more charity work, and 49 of the 50 students stated they had never partipcated in a service project before.  These service projects and the idea that these kids wanted more formed the genesis for the organization known as Serving Other Souls (SOS), Inc.  Four years later, SOS is a certified 501(c) that has trained hundreds of middle school student members in servant-leadership skills that build empathy and work ethic in our members while creating and conducting service projects such as Thanksgiving Food Drives, Homeless Clothing Donations on Christmas Eve morning, serving meals at Ronald McDonald House, and conducting the Annual Miles of Smiles 5K for souls suffering from life-threatening health conditions.  To date, SOS has donated over $99,000 in cash to needy souls in the Pittsburgh area and also donated an additional $66,000 in material goods such as food, clothing, and supplies for the needy of our community.  Visit our website at to see the many other ways that we can Serve Other Souls.
