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.
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.
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.
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.
