DeliverThat Partners with The Legacy Project of Stark for 2022 Charity Golf Outing
This year’s DeliverThat charity golf outing features a local organization, The Legacy Project of Stark. Beginning in 2015, The Legacy Project of Stark is a mentorship program for youth that services seventeen local schools and ten school districts throughout Stark County while continuing to grow every year. They also provide community events and offer a summer program where students can connect with one another, priding themselves on being an organization that comes to their students on their home turf.
When asked what the catalyst for the program was, founder Eugene Lingenhoel mentioned an interaction he had with a 6th-grade girl early in his endeavor.
“We had a girl who came in every day and kept falling asleep. When I asked her what was going on and why she was so exhausted, she said she had a younger brother and sister, and their parents weren’t around much. It was her responsibility to take care of them, feed them, bathe them and get them up for school. It was an eye-opening experience to understand that not everyone has the same experiences you have had and how we can be there to help.”
