Founder, Ola Ojewumi at SHCTF Annual Book & Bear Drive for Children's Hospital
In 2009, Ola Ojewumi and Prince George's Councilman Thomas E. Dernoga (District 1) created Sacred Hearts Children’s Transplant Foundation (SHCTF). SHCTF works to provide awareness about organ donation in addition to creating public service opportunities for young students. We began with the simple mission of spreading the word about registering to become an organ donor. Little did we know we would work to impact the lives of children living with illness.
In 2011, SHCTF created Project A.S.C.E.N.D. Project A.S.C.E.N.D. is a grant program that affords students the opportunity to build there own community service programs. SHCTF continues to partner with leaders to create a local platform that spreads awareness about the importance of public service. The work of SCHTF is a testament of the spirit of community service.
