Luke Miller of Holicong Middle School was named the district-wide winner of the Boomerang Award in February for Asset #26: Caring.
Luke was nominated for his help with the homeless. Luke most recently made toiletry bags for the homeless on the streets of Philly; he also collected toiletries for the local Bucks County code blue shelters and volunteers for the community out reach on the third Sunday of every month. He also tries to make the other community outreach meal on the second Sunday of every month in Buckingham. Luke can be found making desserts for the code blue shelters on Monday nights. He also has intentions of writing to people who are incarcerated with letters of hope and showing them someone cares and has connected with a foundation called MenzFit to see how he can help make this happen. Luke has also helped a charity in Philadelphia called the Sunday Love Project that hands out food to the homeless in Philadelphia and Kensington. On a daily basis he thinks of ways to help someone anyone in need. He believes that people just need to pay attention to the many people that are in many different kinds of need. From D.C. to Mass., he has been helping the homeless for many years and when in his travels never goes empty-handed. Anytime he visits the city he and his brother fill their backpacks and handout to those on the street. He said it hurts him to walk away, and he wants them to know he cares so he always has something to offer. Locally he supports Bucks County Code Blue, Bucks County Housing, Home Front (a shelter in Trenton, N.J.) and truly anyone in need
