The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation met with our donor partners, Kiss the Monkeys yesterday to coordinate and organize disaster relief supplies at the front lines of the fire.
While organizing supplies at Los Angeles Fire Station 84, volunteers saw first hand what the first phase of a disaster response looks like. They’re doing the best they can on behalf of residents and cooperative partnership community organizations is an absolutely necessity so that they can focus on what they are trained to do best.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the most recent wildfires occurring in Los Angeles and San Bernardino County, California region. We understand how burdensome natural and man-made disasters can be on residents, entire communities, and municipalities. We too were affected by the wind driven fire activity when a nearby plant nursery caught fire causing several acres of land to burn in its path.
On August 29, 2017 – the twelve year anniversary the levees broke in Louisiana following landfall of Hurricane Katrina, we announced efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Coincidentally, the levees began to break around Houston, Texas as flood waters crippled the regions infrastructure and rescue efforts were underway. The decision to create a disaster relief fund received overwhelming support from Foundation supporters. Especially since, 100% of donations have been committed to recovery efforts.
Supporters like you asked that we coordinate efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and we heard you loud and clear.
