What is TLR GIVES BACK Foundation?


We believe in self empowering and becoming the best that you can be no matter what obstacle may stand in your way. 

Coming from a family that had very little while growing up, we depended on organizations such as The Salvation Army and The People’s Resource Center to provide us with food and clothing.  I am very grateful and happy that I am now in a position to give back to those organizations and my community.

For the longest time I couldn’t figure out a purpose and/or platform for the foundation. All I knew was that I wanted to help kids and individuals in our community to live their dreams.  Then I thought about my grandmother, Mrs. Cleora Thomas Harris, who developed a horrible disease called “Dementia and Alzheimer” at the age of 82.  It had a great effect on our family. We couldn’t, and didn’t, understand completely how it worked. All we knew was one minute she would know who you were, and the next she didn’t. But one thing she never forgot was how to play the piano/organ. My favorite memories of my grandmother are when she would play. We would name any song and she would play so beautifully without missing a note. Watching and seeing how playing the organ made her feel and I knew then that, “Music and Arts” was the direction I would take. 

Our goal is to provide scholarships and or instruments to individuals and groups of all ages who want to get involved with Music and Arts.

Details on how you can apply for a scholarship will be posted on our website soon. 

We are 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization.
