Together, members of the community, students, teachers, nonprofit leaders, and the gang from Philly got into kayaks and cleaned Lady Bird lake. The clean-up was a TMF Operation Legacy Service Project honoring the life of 1st Lt Travis Manion, whose “If Not Me then Who” legacy started the foundation. Outside of honoring a fallen hero, Operation Legacy Service Projects create opportunities for veterans and families of the fallen along with inspired civilians to partner with the community around a service-oriented cause.
We Love Philly is one of 14 recipients of a grant. Each organization is helping to advance at least one of three goals in Philadelphia: strengthening kindergarten readiness, building early reading proficiency, or increasing rates of high school graduation.
My name is Neli and I grew up with my Mom and two brothers. I’ve lived in Philly my whole life and have witnessed the struggle that others have to go through in order to survive. My Mom has always done her best to make sure we are always good in any situation. This has taught me to appreciate the little things and where we come from. That is what inspired me to want to volunteer with the Sunday Love Project
