PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release

D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation Rallies Community Support for Ontario Octogenarian

 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!

 

Stay tuned for details about the next and last Gardening for Healthier Communities Day in 2018, taking place on June 23rd. We hope to see you there. Thank you!

Reflections on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Reflections on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

By admin in D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation, Foundation Events on April 4, 2018

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. This event could not have been a success without their dedication and hard work. Despite the rain, Lampkin Foundation volunteers were able to help plant 165 trees throughout Ontario, California.

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.

Thanks to volunteers, supporters, and stakeholders, the city of Ontario is well on it’s way to retaining it’s status as a “Tree City USA“. Furthermore, many homes will benefit from the developing shade and carbon emissions are being reduced.

Seasons Greetings!

When shopping for Christmas gifts this season, please keep the Lampkin Foundation in mind. There may be people on your list who might truly appreciate having a donation to the Lampkin Foundation made in their name, rather than receiving a tangible gift. This is a perfect option for people who “have everything” or whose lives have been impacted in some way by pulmonary fibrosis, recent disasters, or lack of access to fresh food, which our organization works to bring awareness to every day.
