7 million children in the United States suffer from pediatric pulmonology related diseases. As a result, children spend a significant amount of time in the hospital being treated for their illness. Children miss school, family gatherings, and time playing with friends. While the prospect of taking a family photo sounds exciting, imagine a mother and father having to make the difficult decision to take a photo without their little guy or princess because the wheezing is too severe to discharge them from the hospital. Even more disheartening is the inability to afford a family photo because the hospital bills and cost of outpatient care is too overwhelming.

Ernestine Allen is a 32-year resident of the city of Ontario who has seen many changes over the years on her mostly palm-tree-lined street, Plaza Serena. But one thing has stayed constant: everyone communicates and looks out for one another.
In May, Ernestine noticed the diadora pine tree located in her front yard beginning to lean as winds battered the Ontario area. She was concerned parts of the tree would fall and damage adjacent homes or neighbors walking by her home.
Hector is five years old and, he too, already believes he is strong enough to make his community stronger. Last Saturday was the second time he and his family participated in our Gardening for Healthier Communities series.
Thanks to donors and supporters, like you, the Lampkin Foundation is not only able to sponsor and create programs and initiatives that lead to the development of stronger communities, we are able to get people THINKING about how they can make a positive impact – no matter how old they are.
We have a vision for communities that are strong, fully engaged, and resilient. And thanks to community members like Hector, we are reminded that there are no limitations to what we can accomplish when we work together.
Thank you to all who have participated, supported, or donated to our Developing Neighborhood Agriculture Initiative thus far. Your kindness and generosity is making a difference. Thank you!
Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, his message is still just as significant. It is my hope his legacy last another 50 years and beyond.
He taught us that there is validity in protest and that you can change the country through meaningful, constructive civil engagement. He even noted that everyone has the potential to be great through service.
Let’s also not forget King was stressed about the progress being made in the United States. There were some gains but there was also loss – including death.
Dr. King was perhaps one of the greatest human beings to ever grace this earth. Chief among the characteristics of being a human being is that he was human – not perfect, but certainly spiritually aware of our nature and the need to improve how we treat each other.

The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation would like to thank all of our volunteers for their recent contribution of time to the Ontario Arbor Day Celebration on March 10, 2018.

We are happy to report more than 40 Ontario residents, students, and community shareholders came to support Inland Empire Resource Conservation District and CIRCLE 2.0‘s larger effort to plant over 1650 trees across California and Ontario’s effort to reduce and limit carbon emissions.
