A Lotta Love at Center of Hope
Heather, a designer by trade, wasn’t sure what she wanted to do next. Having recently lost her father, her friend Renee, also a designer, gifted her a paintbrush with a simple message: “paint the life you want.”
“I always am designing, transforming these two rooms is personal. I left home at an early age and can relate to what a room means to someone at a young age. I want these boys to come home, walk in and feel like it is theirs. That it was done for them.”
The Leon Levine Foundation Continues Partnership

As the Garden Grew, So did this Volunteer
When our Marsh Road Boys & Girls Club had the opportunity to start a garden, we didn’t have to look far for someone to help out with the new program. Elizabeth Miller was already volunteering with us on a regular basis, and she couldn’t wait to get involved with this new project.
“I love the whole garden idea,” she said. “The children might not be exposed to gardening these days, and I love that I can be the one to teach them.”
