Logan Renshaw was passionate about the character development of children, helping them to realize their full potential and become the best version of themselves. She loved her family and was committed to building strong communities. She was also a strong advocate for helping to improve the environment. With these goals in mind, the Logan’s Love Foundation focuses on increasing awareness, volunteering, and fund raising for causes important to Logan and our family. We invite you to join us and to be the light and make a difference for others in Tampa, FL, Pittsburgh, PA, and around the world.
Beach and Park Clean Up
Logan was passionate about the environment and was dedicated to raising awareness and educating others about sustainable living and organizations such as Keep America Beautiful and 4Ocean. To help make a difference, Logan’s Love hosts volunteer events throughout the year to beautify our beaches and public parks. We work with businesses, schools, and organizations including Keep Pinellas Beautiful to coordinate events. Please contact us if you would like to volunteer or host a beautification project in Florida or other states.
Living Shoreline Project
Logan’s Love volunteers with Tampa Bay Watch to help fill and transport bags of shells to local barrier islands via boat. The bags of shells attract oysters which help to build a natural shoreline protection to prevent island erosion. The oysters serve as a filtration system to purify the water in the bay. We look forward to more volunteering with this organization including planting sea grasses.
Good Samaritan Mission School
Logan’s Love is fund raising to help support the education needs of students at the Good Samaritan Mission School in Uganda, Africa. We learned about this program through our friend and priest, Father Frank Lubowa, a wonderful spiritual leader and inspiration to our family who is doing incredible work here in Florida and abroad in Africa. Father Frank started the school in 2004 where over 300 children currently receive elementary education. Donations help to cover tuition fees, school uniforms, school supplies, lunches, and building projects for the school. Currently, we sponsor three students each year, and would like to help more. Please support this cause through upcoming Logan’s Love fund raisers or donate directly to:
Holy Family Catholic Church

NPH International Orphanages and Child Protection
Logan visited an NPH International orphanage in Honduras as part of a young leaders exchange program through the YMCA as a teenager. After her return, she focused on increasing awareness about this amazing organization and sponsored a child. She learned first hand about the importance of caring for all children and the great need that exists. NPH has orphanages and child protection services in the U.S. and around the world. Please consider donating directly to NPH to sponsor a child or special project.
Easter Basket Drive for John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital St. Pete, FL
One of our favorite annual events, Logan’s Love supports Easter for Eli, a foundation dedicated to providing Easter baskets to children’s hospitals in memory of Eli Garrett who at age three, lost his battle to non-Hodgins T-cell Lymphoma in May of 2009. Through our church, Espiritu Santo, students volunteer to donate items and assemble 200 baskets for children at the John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Pete. FL. Our goal is to bring, hope, happiness, and Easter blessings to these courageous children every year. Please contact us if you would like to donate or volunteer.
We first learned about Metropolitan Ministries through volunteering for the Holiday Tent that serves thousands of families from Thanksgiving through Christmas. The organization does much more year round with services that help the homeless and at-risk children and families, serving more than 32,000 men, women, and children. Please donate directly to this amazing organization or volunteer as the need in the Tampa area is significant and this organization does great work in providing support, love, dignity, and hope for the future for so many in need.
Mary Lee’s House
Mary Lee’s House is a child-advocacy organization dedicated to the prevention, intervention, and treatment of abused and neglected children in Hillsborough County in Tampa, FL. They partner with various agencies with a focus on community outreach and education programs to benefit the safety and well-being of children. Please consider donating directly to Mary Lee’s House as they are always in need of funding, new clothing, toys, and volunteers to support their mission.
Logan Helene Renshaw Scholarship Fund
Cranberry Township, PA
Logan was a dancer and cheerleader all her life. She just loved cheering under the Friday night lights at Seneca Valley High School in Cranberry, PA and for the Countryside Cougars in Clearwater, FL. Her energy, team spirit, and humor on and off the field was contagious and helped her transition between schools and make new friends. Logan was also a cheer coach with the Countryside Cougars Junior Football Association where she shared her passion for cheering. In memory of Logan, Seneca Valley High School started the Logan Helene Renshaw Scholarship Fund to honor outstanding cheerleaders each year.
YMCA Camp Kon-O-Kwee Spencer
Logan attended the YMCA Camp Kon-O-Kwee Spencer (KOK) in Fombell, PA as a child through the Indian Princess Father/Daughter program and was a camp counselor for two summers. KOK was Logan’s inspiration to want to become a teacher. She loved children and like Camp KOK, wanted children to become the “best versions of themselves”. In 2019, we built a Cabin for Kids in Logan’s memory and continue to volunteer and support this amazing camp. In 2020, we helped fund raise to build a new Trail of Courage, an agility and obstacle course that is a family favorite at camp. KOK has served many generations of campers for over 90 years and focuses on character development, teamwork, accepting others, leadership, and most importantly…family.
