As you may already know, the funds we raise from this years gala will enable the Lampkin Foundation to continue its programs and initiatives through 2019. The Lampkin Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) organization in July 2017. Since then we have provided 5 college scholarships, fed 48 families throughout the region, and provided and coordinated disaster relief for residents on the mainland of the U.S. and in Puerto Rico. We are very proud of our achievements to date.

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.

Please join us in thanking the city of Ontario for allowing us to speak before city council Tuesday, August 15th. As Mayor Leon stated, 3 minutes was not enough time to explain all the great work you, our community of supporters, are doing. But we are still grateful for the opportunity to introduce you to some of the folks we’re helping and to be acknowledged.
Join D’Andre and the rest of the Lampkin Foundation Tuesday August 15th at 6:30 PM. D’Andre will publicly acknowledge the volunteers and donors who have supported the Foundation.
Several weeks ago, D’Andre was asked by the Mayor of the Ontario, Paul Leon, to publicly tell city council, community leaders, and residents about the Lampkin Foundation. While he was thankful for the opportunity, he felt the story about the Foundation could not be told without you, the supporters. The Lampkin Foundation is more than just 1 person; It’s all of you!
NOTE: Meetings are televised in the Inland Empire region
Hope to see you there!
