ONTARIO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation today led students from Cerritos College EOPS Dynamics of Leadership Class in a service project that honors the legacy and memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The students volunteered to assemble over 100 hygiene kits to benefit Ontario, California homeless and federal Ontario International Airport TSA workers furloughed due to the government shut down. Discussions about community service, community building, and community sustainability were led by D’Andre Lampkin and Cerritos College professor Henrietta Hurtado.
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.

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.
Last month, host Aurthur Levine introduced residents to ways they are reusing organic material from local stores to create compost and plant next years harvest. Participants are building stronger communities by assisting residents who depend on the farm to have continued access to fresh organic produce.
Join us Saturday May 26th at 9:00 AM as we continue this year’s Designing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) projects. This time we’ll focus on the team effort that goes into preparing and packaging the organic produce that feeds hundreds of residents in the region.
Gardening for Healthier Communities combines topical conversations, active working sessions, and farming education to highlight the importance and need for fresh organic produce in highly populated urban areas. The Lampkin Foundation has partnered with Huerta Del Valle, a non-profit, to host “A Day of Farming”. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, this is the event for you!
Huerta Del Valle‘s goal is to provide all 160,000 people residing in the city of Ontario with accessible organic food. They also endeavor to foster, cultivate, and build stronger relationships within the region.

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.
