Sharing the Torch – Changing the Lives We Touch – A Day of Service
Legacy Ladies, Inc. kicked off their 5th anniversary by conducting a day of service in South Central Los Angeles. Volunteers and corporate supporters including United Parcel Service, State Farm, Southwest Airlines, Brotherhood Crusade and ICEF Public Schools, gathered to make a difference in the lives of our children. A bus caravan started at View Park Preparatory Charter School and then dropped volunteers off at Challenger’s Boys and Girls Club and Horace Mann Middle School to beautify the facilities. The beautification projects and workshops were well received and greatly appreciated by the community recipients. Over 100 students and parents participated by providing hands on support throughout the day by monitoring and participating in the workshops presented by George Thompson, Dr. Lisa Nicholas, Radhika Patel, Willie Riley, members of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Brian Taylor and Kedisa Johnson. In addition to the hands
on activities, the volunteers donated over 100 books to School on Wheels, for their educational enrichment program. Also, Legacy Ladies, in partnership with Brotherhood Crusade, presented View Park Preparatory Charter School with a 47″ plasma television, to expand their technology program. The Torch is ignited, once again!
