Congratulations to our graduates!
Sarah, JaMichael and Liz are on their way to their chosen professions: a psychologist, nurse, and a pediatrician.
Our community's future looks a little brighter this week as a record number of 18 LightHouse seniors walk across the stage to graduation.
Each one has plans for higher education or the military, and all will bring lessons from the after-school program with them.
"I learned how to be my own man," said JaMichael, a FairPark graduate. He only started attending the program in February, but it made a huge impression.
"They adapt to you like you're their own child and make you feel special," he said.
To all of you who make the program possible, LoAsha extended a hearty thank you.
"They're a blessing to us, and we can be a blessing to other people by serving our community."
Meals on Wheels needs help
About 50 senior citizens in the Highland neighborhood count on our volunteers to bring a hot meal four days a week. But we're struggling to fill a few of those routes, especially on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Each route starts at the Highland Center and takes less than an hour to finish. You can volunteer weekly, monthly or on an as needed basis.
Call Robyn Cassidy at 221-8404 for more information.
Other volunteer needs:
- The Highland Child Development Center needs a spring cleaning. Contact Brian Byrd at 221-8404 or email@example.com if you have a group that can help one Saturday.
- One of our LightHouse families - a single mother with two children -- is in need of a refrigerator. Theirs broke and they can't replace or fix it. If you can help, call Dewanna Lovelace at 221-8404 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
