With the support of The Allstate Foundation, WE Volunteer Now is helping youth build critical social and emotional learning skills, like goal-setting, empathy and relationship-building. With these skills, young people—like Zeke—are leading with compassion and making positive impacts in their local communities and around the world.
When Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, seven-year-old Zac knew he had to do something. He began collecting stuffed animals to help the kids cope and bring comfort. 10,000 stuffed animals later, Zac’s Zoo was created. Sadly, Zac was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident at the young age of 20. But thanks to the Allstate Foundation, WE Volunteer Now and his family, his legacy lives on today.
