07.26.19 FUNDRAISER UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who has donated, shared and brought awareness to the 2019 Back to School Fundraiser. We are almost half-way to our goal and have raised enough to fill 237 of the 500 backpacks. We still have to fill 263 backpacks. With one week to go in the fundraiser, please consider making a donation. Every $20 we raise will fill one backpack. Thank you for your support.
Help us get the 2019 school year off to a great start for Lanterman clients between 3 to 18 years whose families are experiencing financial hardship.
Lanterman is receiving a donation of 400 backpacks from Baby2Baby and we’re contributing 200 additional backpacks. Plus we already have supplies for 100 of those backpacks. What we need from our community is your help to raise the funds to fill the remaining 500 backpacks with basic age-appropriate school supplies.
For every $20 we raise, by August 2, 2019, we’ll be able to fill one backpack with supplies, including everything from crayons, markers, glue, scissors and paper for the younger students, to pens, spiral notebooks, binders, rulers and calculators for the older students.
Service coordinators will be nominating their clients who are most in need and clients will receive their backpack and supplies on August 9 at a Back to School event being hosted by Lanterman.
