In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, I hope you will decide to contribute to one of our 4 seasonal programs designed to build stronger, more resilient communities. We recognize that we have been fundraising year round through several platforms and events. If you have never donated, there is no better time than today to show your support and help our programs thrive.
Month: November 2018
Everyone has the power to make a positive impact in our hearts, our lives, and our communities. During this season of thanks, the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is extremely grateful for the generosity of our supporters, volunteers, and donor partners that make it possible for us to continue our goal to sponsor and create programs and initiatives that lead to the development of stronger communities and positively impact individuals wanting to lead happier and healthier lives.
The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation met with our donor partners, Kiss the Monkeys yesterday to coordinate and organize disaster relief supplies at the front lines of the fire.
While organizing supplies at Los Angeles Fire Station 84, volunteers saw first hand what the first phase of a disaster response looks like. They’re doing the best they can on behalf of residents and cooperative partnership community organizations is an absolutely necessity so that they can focus on what they are trained to do best.
It is with great sadness that we are once again confronting another mass shooting. My heart breaks for the victims and their families. We may never understand what leads a person to such senseless, horrific violence. But it is clear we can all come together as a country to prevent such tragic actions. The majority of the victims were college students – individuals who had plans to make a significant contribution to society. They were our neighbors, our friends, and our future. And now, we may never know the full potential of their legacy. Even more tragic, Ventura County Sheriff’s Sergeant Ron Helus’s rushed in to save lives as patrons rushed out. He sacrificed his own safety to ensure others could go home. He is the epitome of a hero.
The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Foundation’s 2019 Scholarship Program in service to students who participate in social good initiatives and programs and can envision becoming a part of a more socially responsible corporate climate. This is an interactive process and we are excited to showcase one of our very own supporters, Dr. Alison Thompson, as part of our presentation.
