Make an impact with us.
The past year has posed challenges to many of us, especially communities that were already underserved and under-resourced before the COVID-19 Pandemic hit. As we collectively continue to navigate, Tommi and I have been inspired to even greater levels of service and we hope that you will join us.
As you may know, our family’s 501c3 nonprofit Love Thy Neighbor (LTN) supports and assists students and student athletes in their college education, in youth football groups, local community outreach and through our high school-college tour. We believe that athletics is one of the very best mechanisms to help young people develop the resilience and tenacity to endure some of the challenges that will arise in life. In the current economy with cash strapped schools, walking the tightrope of budget restraints but still needing to show up for students and their community, we know LTN’s role is even more important.
If you’ve been following us for the last few years, you’ll know that we’ve expanded our impact beyond our hometown of Trenton, NJ to also serve schools in the Super Bowl host city through our Safe Zone Activity Day and school fundraisers. We’re proud that along with a host of partners and volunteers, we’ve raised more than $300,000 to impact thousands of students in Atlanta, Nashville, Miami, and Tampa. Los Angeles is next.
As a result of our work in those cities, schools were able to meet the moment of the pandemic with much needed laptops for distance learning, STEM supplies to help grow the next generation of doctors and scientists, and bridge educational material gaps expressed by the school communities.
Looking toward the Super Bowl in Los Angeles, we are partnering with John Muir Academy in Long Beach to benefit the school’s list of needs impacting the current 1,000- plus students for generations to come. In addition to helping address inequities in education and shortage of school supplies, we will be partnering with local support groups to address the alarming presence and rise in homelessness in the LA area.
We remain focused and intentional in our effort to support young men and women to grow into adults that not only survive, but that are poised to thrive in this world — an aspiration that underpins everything that we do. As we continue our work, your donation of any size makes a difference to us, and our effort to serve these young men and women. To make your donation online, visit https://www.ltncdc.org.
Again, Tommi and I are very thankful for you, your prayers and your support of LTN. As the Bible says, “Let us not grow weary in doing good.” We thank you in advance for your generous consideration.
Troy and Tommi Vincent
