St. Francis LASSO students help un vecino

It was Presidents Day, and most St. Francis High School (SFS) students were catching up on their sleep. But three members of the Latin American Student Support Organization (LASSO) and three captains of the 2005-2006 soccer team got up early on that day to do some good.  

Joel Castellanos, Gabe DeHoyos, and Michael Martínez from LASSO, and Tom Rose, Jason Law, and Blaize Lishewski from the soccer Knights assisted Hoover Liddell, who owns a tailor shop on Dorr Street near Parkside.

Mr. John Orozco, LASSO moderator and soccer coach, is a friend of Mr. Liddell. He learned that a car had driven into the store front, causing a great deal of damage to the building and its contents.

Orozco asked the Knights to help do the clean-up, and they spent most of sábado morning tidying up.  Mr. Chico Castellanos (father of Joel), Mr. Michael Martínez, Sr., (father of Michael), and Mr. Chip Smith (Gesu teacher and Assistant Soccer Coach) came with Orozco to assist in the project, which included removing parts of the broken store front and hundreds of items of clothing from the building.

The SFS students took the clothing to the Salvation Army, and plan on soliciting funds for a trust fund being collected by the Toledo Urban Credit Union to help make up for Mr. Liddell’s lost wages. He told Mr. Orozco and the boys, “You couldn’t beat this help with a hammer.”
