For the first round of the playoffs, the organization, led by owner Jeff Vinik and his wife Penny, is honoring six local non-profits, all of which are working to promote and enhance local social justice initiatives.
Men of Vision is a mentorship organization created to expose young men to new ideas and opportunities and to encourage the practice of responsibility for their respective futures. Men of Vision has surpassed the state of Florida's high school graduation rate 10 years in a row with 98 percent of its members receiving standard high school diplomas. The donation from the Lightning Foundation will support the Digital Divide, purchasing laptops for students who need them, and otherwise wouldn't have access to them. Pinellas County Urban League helps adults attain economic self-sufficiency through good jobs, home ownership, entrepreneurship and wealth accumulation, protecting civils rights by eradicating all barriers to equal participation in the economic and social mainstream of America. The hero donation will go towards the implementation of virtual workshops for PCUL young professionals on voter education, race relations and crime prevention. Safe & Sound Hillsborough strives to unite the efforts of those involved in criminal justice, economic development, education, community building and health. This donation will support a youth mentoring and employment project within the East Tampa area, support the Evening Reporting Center in the 33610 zip code, fund expansion of the My Brother's Keeper Virtual Credit Recovery Program for minority high school males and assist efforts to build relationships between law enforcement and the community. Tampa Bay Black Business Investment Fund was established as a non-profit in 1987 to serve businesses owned and operated by African American entrepreneurs, providing loans to a historically underserved market segment of the community, but now serves entrepreneurs of all ethnic backgrounds. This donation will support its CATCH Entrepreneurial Training Program, which is an intensive 15-week entrepreneurship training program for minority businesses. Collectively, these social justice nonprofits become the 407th Lightning Community Hero since Jeff and Penny Vinik introduced the Lightning Community Heroes program in 2011-12 with a $10 million, five-season commitment to Tampa Bay area non-profits. That initial pledge has since been increased and extended. Through today's announcement, in total, the Lightning Foundation has granted $20.65 million to more than 750 different nonprofits in the Greater Tampa Bay area. The Lightning's Community Heroes program does not stop at the doors of Amalie Arena. Instead, the program will continue to make an impact locally throughout the Stanley Cup playoffs. The franchise will donate $200,000 to local charities for every playoff round the team advances. During the first intermission of the Tampa Bay-Columbus game on Tuesday, the Lightning announced six local non-profits that are striving to promote and enhance social justice initiatives. Abe Brown Ministries, the Florida Holocaust Museum, Men of Vision, Pinellas County Urban League, Safe & Sound Hillsborough and Tampa Bay Black Business Investment Fund received donations from the Lightning Foundation collectively as the program's 407th Community Hero. The program, which was introduced in 2011-12, has donated $20.65 million to date to more than 750 nonprofits in the Tampa Bay area. Contact Mari Faiello at [email protected] Follow @faiello_mari.
