Big surprise for Heritage Landing girl shows community togetherness despite COVID-19

April 14, 2020

 | 

Saturday, April 4, was a very important day for Sloane Stadt for two reasons. She was home for the first time after an intense, month-long round of chemotherapy, and she was turning four years old.

 

Sloane was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) on February 28. She entered the hospital on March 2 to begin treatment and returned home last weekend for a brief respite before returning to the hospital.

 

While Sloane was unable to celebrate with a party at home due to COVID-19, the community stepped in to help her celebrate her big day. A community car parade was organized in Heritage Landing where she lives with her family.

 

The procession included nearly 60 vehicles as well as vehicles from St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office and St. Johns County Fire Rescue. Many cars were decorated with balloons and signs. Lots of cars were honking, waving and dropping off birthday gifts for Sloane.

Thanksgiving drive brings in more than 200 bags of donations for struggling families

November 19, 2019

 | 

Last weekend, generous residents, customers and friends took time out of their busy weekend to donate groceries for my annual Thanksgiving drive at Heritage Landing!

 

More than 200 bags of donations were brought in addition to palates of drinks, household cleaners, paper towels and much more (in fact, this photo was taken just halfway through the drive!)

 

All donations went straight to the Emergency Services & Homeless Coalition of St. Johns County. The non-profit helps struggling families get back on their feet through food redistribution, clothing donations, neighborhood watch services and assistance accessing Medicaid, disability insurance and other resources. The Coalition also focuses on creating stability for the kids of its families with tutoring, after-school snacks, computer training, recreational activities and summer camps.

 

I want to thank each and every person who took the time and expense to donate!
