More Info

Luther Barnett, Jr was a resident of Lindsay Heights for 30+ years and was known for his generosity and good humor. He loved the children and they loved him.  Every child in the neighborhood knew if you went by Mr Barnett's home, he would give you a popsicle, or juice or candy. He gave bikes to the children and often did many of the repairs as needed.

He mentored many of the young men in the Neighborhood, showing then how to repair/fix just about anything.  He talked about life and what it meant to be a man. He even discussed proper ways to dress.

Mr. Barnett died in 2019 and the first Reading Camp was held that year to honor his love of the community.  This will be the second year and we are adding arts as requested by the children.

Funds will be used for transportation and fees to diverse galleries in the Milwaukee area, art and physical activity supplies, refreshments and a visiting artist from Chicago who specializes in recycling items into art objects. 

Our desire is to continue the legacy of Luther Barnett, Jr by providing a positive exciting yet educational experience for the children of Lindsay Heights.

Warriors & Uplifters of 53206 is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation .
