March Madness

March Madness

To Our Dear Friends,


 For the past 20 years, the heartbeat of Friends of St. Lawrence 

has been creating impact full experiences through connection... 

connection with the families, children, community of Watts....  

and always with YOU, our dear support group.

When we sat down back in January and decided to host our "Stay at Home" fundraising event, it was solely for the purpose of giving us time to pause and reflect on ways to get back to what has always been the most important part of Friends' mission: the children.  


Of course we had no idea that "Stay at Home" would take on a whole new meaning with the COVID-19 scare... that the entire world would be taking a moment to step back and reflect on the most important things in their lives... which always turns out to be the ones we love.

We thank all of you who have reached out to us with the overall general mindset 

that “we are all in this together" because truly, we are.

We pray for you and your family's continued well being and health. 

 We hope to see you in the near future...

Until then, stay well!



With love and gratitude,

The Board and Staff of Friends of St. Lawrence-Watts Youth Center
