It's not the first time this American Idol Runner Up does something positive for the community.
"I was going to be a special needs teacher before I became a singer. I just love being around kids and their families are all here and anything I can do around my area to help out, I'm always excited to be a part of that," says Lauren Alaina.
Lauren Alaina spends a few hours at the City of Refuge in Dalton.
The organization serves those less fortunate with a shower, a meal, and even health care.
Pamela Cudd with City of Refuge, "Our numbers of course are increasing daily. Right now currently we serve 5,500 people a month through the different areas of service. We're in a very small location but we provide a lot of service and meet a lot of need through this location."
Lauren's "Eighteen Cities Tour Inch by Inch" will do more than give a slight boost to a local economy.
The 17 year old will choose one organization in each city to give back to.
"You never know what the circumstances are for the person that's on the side of the street. People are quick to judge them and think they just don't want to work but that's not always the case so I have a big heart for people who are, you know, aren't as fortunate as I am," says Alaina.
One by One, the Georgia Peach herself hugged all the kids and took pictures.
She even made it a point to spread her love of singing.
"This is a way to show them you are valued and you are just as important as anybody else. And this girl is coming to spend her evening with you and just enjoy some time, some fun, some fellowship," says Cudd.
Making an impact in many different lives.
