Right now the students and families at the greatest risk need your help. 47.3% of LPS students receive free or reduced lunch, the equivalent of nearly 20,000 kids. A campaign goal of $500,000 just begins to address the needs of the most vulnerable children and families across the district.
· Assisting parents with funds for childcare they had not planned for and cannot afford.
· Supporting parents whose shifts have been reduced or jobs eliminated because of the downturn in the economy. They will need help to pay rent and basic utility bills.
· Helping pay unforeseen medical bills due to contact with COVID-19.
· Collaborating with the Food Bank of Lincoln to help fund mobile pantries for families to stock up on food should quarantine become a necessity.
Donations will support families struggling with costs for childcare, medical care, housing, utilities, food and other emergency needs as they arise. Support students and their families most at risk. Give today and support a LPS student and their family at the greatest risk of being affected by COVID-19.
