Who we are
Sam and Lana, we are in the 11th and 8th grade. We met Fr. Franklin when he was here on sabbatical at our local church, St. James. He told us about his church and the school, and his struggle to educate the children. After hearing about it we decided we HAD to help somehow. In January 2014 we organized our first 5K and raised $1940.00, enough for 5 kids to go to school for one year. We held our second run last may and raised $3215.00 and added two more students. This year we were able to raise enough to continue with their education.
We have been to skid row and fed the homeless, had a lemonade stand after hurricane Sandy and sent the proceeds to Governor Christie, and in general where we see a need we try and help in any way we can.
At SLT Charity we aim to rebuild hope where it has been lost and to work with those in need. Our focus lies in community efforts. We lend a helping hand, a smile and an encouraging word.
