Social interaction at Cleveland sporting events bring much needed lift to homeless and needy Clevelanders and can lead to job skills training and career opportunities!
What a joy to spend time with Ellie and Alex on a little shopping spree and lunch at Costco. Chair of Federated Church's Mission and Service and dear friend of Janet Fitch, the kids' great grandmother, Linda Zelazny, joined in the fun. Good luck Ellie at the regional spelling bee competition!
Ellie has won her school's spelling bee competition and will be going to Regionals March 12! Good luck Ellie!
Round The World at Michael Zone Recreation Center Park last night rocked! Rec Instructor (far left) Nicole is a gamer and we loved her energy and participation. The young man holding a Michigan Spartans Football sweatshirt was the winner. The sweatshirt was donated by Rhys Tucker, brother of Spartans head coach, Mel Tucker. Thanks Tuckers for your support. Three of the men were at our first session and we love the new players ... girls rock too!

Our program called The Sky's The Limit got off to a terrific start last night thanks to the generosity and amazing support of Monica Lelutiu, Director of the Michael Zone Recreation Center, 6301 Lorain Ave, Cleveland, OH 44102 Map 🏀🏀🏀🏀
Eight fine young men participated in Round The World then went on to play 4 on 4. They are true winners! Another winner is officer Fritz of the Cleveland Police Dept. We thank him for his service in general but also for his extra service keeping us all safe. The young men range in ages 17-19 with about half in high school and the half working or looking for work.
All received a gift card from Subway® . Those who wish to bring a copy of their report cards to the next session were encouraged to do so. One young man already reached out to me last night for help in finding a job. This is how TSTL works and this what we do!!!! 🏀🏀🏀🏀
Next session: Friday, February 25, 2022 @ 7:00 p.m. at the Michael Zone Recreation Center, 6301 Lorain Ave, Cleveland, OH 44102 Map 🏀🏀🏀🏀 See you there!
