Kyosha Lowery is the founder of Leach Helping Hands, a nonprofit that gives hygiene bags and other items to those in need. Her desire to give back is sparked by her own hardships growing up. Inspired by those who helped her, she has now collected over 500 hygiene bags for middle and high school students in need.
Giving to charity is crucial for economic prosperity, happiness, and the success of our people. But for too long, only the upper class has been incentivized to give to charitable organizations. With the Universal Charitable Giving Act we help support the great work of the faith-based and charitable groups working hard to make a difference in our community.
Congress has passed laws that provide resources to confront this epidemic, but as we learned in our Opioid Crisis Tour throughout North Carolina, more action is clearly needed. We will remain committed to working with local law enforcement, first responders, and local government to stop the overwhelming hardship this is causing to the families of our community.
I have always valued the importance of HBCUs. With more than 100 HBCUs across the nation – and eleven here in North Carolina, they are an integral part of our higher education system. On a more personal note, my wife, Kelly, is a graduate of Winston-Salem State University and has found success as a nurse practitioner, which she attributes in part to the strong education she received. I believe it is as important as ever to have Republicans engage with HBCUs.
“It is time to get back to work for the American people and finish what they sent us here to do. Rather than focusing on real solutions to protect the integrity of our elections, House Democrats would rather satisfy their impeachment obsession at the expense of our national security and the faith in our elections.

"People not the government offer the best solutions to solve the ailments that face our society, and by supporting charities, we make our communities and our country a better place for Americans from all walks of life. The Universal Charitable Giving Act allows everyone to deduct charitable giving, regardless of itemizing status while increasing support for the great work our faith-based and charitable organizations contribute."

“I’m inspired by Kyosha’s positive outlook, enthusiasm, and willingness to dedicate so much of her time and resources to helping others. She knows what it’s like to be in need, and these bags provide supplies and encouragement to others. I have no doubt that Kyosha will continue to make a difference in Randolph County and beyond.”
