Mary Poppins 2

The SLP families recently attended a production of Mary Poppins at Town Theatre.  The show we saw benefited Family Shelter & was specifically opened to residents of local homeless shelters in Columbia–we love supporting other local agencies who serve homeless families!

On July 17th, the teens at St Lawrence Place held a carwash to raise funds for future activities. The event was a resounding success, raising $230.00. This could not have happened without the hard work and effort of the teens, SLP staff, and those of you who stopped in for a quick vacuum and wash. We would like to send out a huge thanks to all those who made this event a success. And please forgive us if I failed to recognize anyone.
