- Christy Avilla column in MidWeek, Dec. 12, 2012
The Slippah Foundation was created in 2005 by Avilla’s mother, Lynn Vasquez.
“(My mother) started realizing that the kids who were running around and playing in Mayor Wright Housing didn’t have any slippers,” Avilla explains. “She started asking people for donations, and just by word of mouth this small little organization turned into this thing where the community is involved …
Everything that we collect is from the community.”
