Today is the day we set aside to give thanks for our family and the many friends we have in our lives.
I tend to be thankful for everyone who made this Thanksgiving Holiday possible… Especially those who are working and making the holiday progress in ways that are unseen. My thanks extends from the law enforcement officer, soldier serving overseas, soup kitchen worker, to the grocery store cashier.
Every year, we set aside a day to remember the sacrifices of those who protect our freedoms, ensure our tranquility, and guarantee our resilience. We celebrate veterans of past wars and those still serving at home and abroad. We also celebrate veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice and those who continue to fight so that we may have a chance to make our union more perfect everyday.
The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Foundation’s 2018 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.
We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s support of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation Bingo Fundraiser.
Last weekend we held a Bingo Game Fundraiser. It was a huge success. Thanks to our community of supporters, donors, and volunteers, we are able to continue our mission of building stronger, more equitable communities together.
Disaster to Resilience: the difference is YOU! We have recently updated our Volunteer Registry. Our new application allows for our community of volunteers to include any information that may be useful during outreach efforts in and around your community. Information such as special skills, work information, and credentials are useful when forming teams of volunteers to fulfill specific missions.
It is with heartfelt sorrow that we have been following the tragic developments ensuing from the violent shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada on Sunday October 1, 2017. This was especially personal for me as I learned two of the victims, Michael & Summer Gracia, were shot by the attacker. I have had the privilege of knowing the Gracia Family and serving side by side as a law enforcement professional with Michael Gracia’s brother.
We are continuously looking for ways to keep you engaged. A major part of the process is partnering with other non-profit organizations so that we can provide you with the tools you need to continue doing the amazing work you are doing in your communities. Therefore, we are happy to announce we are now members of “Network for Good“
To pay tribute to the victims of 9/11, Foundation volunteers joined Jim Partridge for his 4th annual 9/11 Tribute Run in the city of Rancho Cucamonga.
Jim, an advid runner, professional fitness coach, and patriot started organizing the 9/11 Tribute Run 4 years ago to memorialize the sacrifices made by the victims of September 11th. And he hasn’t stopped since. As time passes, Jim feels that many of us are beginning to forget what happened on that fateful day. He endeavors to raise awareness, pay tribute and honor those who died 16 years ago.
As we look back on the day the United States was attacked, also remember the day we came together as a nation. Let us honor the lives we lost on September 11, 2001 by remembering the day as a glimpse of what we can accomplish when we serve together.
