The D’Andre D. Lampkin Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the Foundation’s 2019 Scholarship Program in service to students who participate in social good initiatives and programs and can envision becoming a part of a more socially responsible corporate climate. This is an interactive process and we are excited to showcase one of our very own supporters, Dr. Alison Thompson, as part of our presentation.
Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, his message is still just as significant. It is my hope his legacy last another 50 years and beyond.
He taught us that there is validity in protest and that you can change the country through meaningful, constructive civil engagement. He even noted that everyone has the potential to be great through service.
Let’s also not forget King was stressed about the progress being made in the United States. There were some gains but there was also loss – including death.
Dr. King was perhaps one of the greatest human beings to ever grace this earth. Chief among the characteristics of being a human being is that he was human – not perfect, but certainly spiritually aware of our nature and the need to improve how we treat each other.

Supporters like you asked that we coordinate efforts to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey and we heard you loud and clear.
On August 29, 2005 there were over 50 failures of the levees and flood walls protecting New Orleans, Louisiana, and its suburbs following passage of Hurricane Katrina and landfall in Mississippi. The levee and flood wall failures caused flooding in 80% of New Orleans and all of St. Bernard Parish.
Join us Saturday August 26 as we kick off yet another Designing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) Project. ‘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.

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!
