It is back to Reading and Math Heroes for 50 of our students and their volunteer tutors!
Through one-to-one time with personal tutors, Reading and Math Heroes aims to help students develop grade level math and literacy skills.
For many of the kids, their favorite part of Reading and Math Heroes is the time they get to spend with their tutors. Many tutors have worked with the same student for a few years and consequently have become good friends and mentors to the kids.
These tutors invest so much time and care into our students and we are grateful for the impact they are having. We’re looking forward to a great year together!

A new location, a new theme, and a great group of people made for a hugely successful Little Lights Benefit 2014: Game On!
With 300 guests in attendance, we had a full house and an energetic crowd.
Our brand new Step Dance Team kicked off the night and got the room ready for the premiere of a new video highlighting a mentoring relationship, a performance by the Little Lights Choir, a testimony from Henry, a Clean Green Team member, and a word from our founder, Steve Park.
And thanks to your generosity, we finished off the night by raising more than $106,000!
That is an incredible help and blessing in our efforts to bring hope, dignity and practical assistance to the kids, adults, and families in our community.
Thank you - to all who attended, participated, and gave generously.
Be sure to check out the full photo album from the evening!

Last Friday we had a visit from our Councilmember, Charles Allen!
It was a pleasure to show him around each of our sites and share with him some of the issues facing our particular community.
We’re grateful to have a Councilmember who takes a personal interest in our neighborhood and our work.

For the third year running, it is our privilege to have the Gaskins Team as a Silver Level Sponsor at the Little Lights Benefit 2014: Game On!
Andy Biggers and Will Gaskins make up the Gaskins Team, a real estate team based out of Falls Church. Though based in Virginia, they work with buyers and sellers throughout the DC Metro area, from Georgetown to Capitol Hill, Gaithersburg to Oakton.
One of the top real estate teams in the DC area, the Gaskins Team has been a faithful friend to Little Lights for many years and we are grateful for their ongoing participation in the Little Lights Benefit.
Something of a fixture in the Little Lights community, Andy Biggers currently serves on our board, has been a generous supporter for many years, and has served on the Host Committee for the Little Lights Benefit in the past.
Be sure to give the Gaskins Team a call the next time you need real estate assistance – whether you’re looking for a condo in the city or a house in Maryland, they can help!
