Volunteers needed for a cleanup day honoring softball player’s legacy

The Live Like Tori Journal is now available for online ordering at Lulu.com. Proceeds help fund scholarships and community projects.

A Day of Service is coming up more than a year after the death of Rockmart High School freshman Tori Luke, and volunteers are needed to help provide clean-up efforts on the Van Wert Trailhead in Rockmart later in the month of September.

Mark your calendars for Sept. 19, 2021, for the Day of Service that starts at 2 p.m. and continues through 4 p.m.

The Tori Luke Foundation posted about their upcoming Day of Service on Facebook on Sunday and is seeking volunteers to come take part in clearing overgrown areas, picking up trash, cleaning around the parking area, and taking up additional efforts for beautification.

Groups can take part but are asked to first fill out a Google form to provide additional information about their organization.

Additionally, those who wish to help the organization and experience a piece of Tori’s life in her own words can purchase her journal online. Proceeds from the sale of the book go toward funding community service projects and annual Tori Luke Foundation Scholarships.

Victoria “Tori” Anne Luke went to her heavenly home on July 25, 2020 at the young age of 14. Tori loved to read, draw, and write. She was an exceptional athlete who we remember for her determination, hard work, fun spirit, and loyalty to her friends and family. The Tori Luke Foundation was created in Tori’s honor. Our goal is to help others through community service/outreach, special projects, and sponsorships.

Here’s the full posting from Sunday on the Tori Like Facebook page.
