(ONTARIO, California – October 23, 2018) – On Friday, September 28, 2018, approximately 100 donors and supporters f the D’Andre D.

The red carpet took place at the 100 year old historic Beverly Hotel (now Beverly Banquets) located in Ontario, California. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefit the programs and initiatives designed to support education, economic development, climate change research, health and wellness, and healthy alternatives for underserved communities.

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.

We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s support of the D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation Bingo Fundraiser.

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.
