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.
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.
We are getting ready for Giving Tuesday. We want you to get in on the action!
What’s #GivingTuesday? What’s the big deal?
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.
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.
We often forget the contributions of ordinary Americans… those who go to work hard everyday to strengthen our economy, ensure our prosperity, and lobby for the rights of workers. On this Labor Day, I want to say thanks.
Thank you to all who get up everyday, despite reservation, to go to a place where they may not feel appreciated, where the weather may not be favorable, and where the recipient of your services may not be patient. Particularly to those of you who put your best foot forward anyway.
