It takes a Village, a Family, and an entire community to make a difference. It requires a deep commitment, lots of love, and dedicated teamwork. Team LJFF and our I Promise students and families are bringing that and a whole lot more as we kick 2024 into high gear!
At the I Promise School, the Kent State football team spent a day sharing their stories of teamwork, perseverance, and life with our 4th graders. They sat side-by-side reading books, trading high fives, and graciously answering the students endless questions about their journeys. Our students left with autographs from their favorite players, and more importantly, motivation to last them a lifetime. House Three Thirty also saw some special visitors with The University of Akron's men's basketball team coming through to debut their Rubber City Tough black alternate uniforms from Nike. In a special photography session at our home away from home, the student athletes proudly repped the jerseys with AKRON proudly displayed across their chests, a message perfectly befitting for House Three Thirty.
