Sammy Sullivan's House
“If we don't stand up for children, then we don't stand for much.” - Marian Wright Edelman
When 22-month old Sammy Sullivan suddenly died, it left his family struggling with how to keep his precious memory alive. His parents, Joe and Brenda Sullivan, decided to create Sammy Sullivan Charities and spread some hope and comfort to other families in need.
Sammy Sullivan Charities pledged $400,000 to build a 12 bed home at A Kid’s Place, a five home Residential Care Facility for abused, abandoned, and neglected children. The funds to meet the obligations of the pledge were raised at the annual Sammy Sullivan Golf Tournament.
The building of the Sammy Sullivan House at A Kid's Place has been competed and in September 2010 Sammy Sullivan Charities paid off their pledge.
Though the Sammy Sullivan House at A Kid's Place has been built, your gift will insure the continued upkeep of the home and provide needed items for the children housed there. Whether scared, confused, bruised or battered, Sammy Sullivan’s House will provide a safe haven for these children in their time of need.
The decision to remember the life of Sammy through this foundation is his family’s gift to the community. Your gift in his memory is priceless.
