We have great news to share!
We have surpassed our goal of $55,000 from our Start Strong campaign!
Programs like Pantry Packs can now support more hungry children in our district, LINKS can continue pairing caring adults with another student in need of additional social-emotional attention, and Balance in Mind can broaden its impact by educating and training as much of our community as possible on the challenges experienced by our youth.
YOU make this possible. Thank you from everyone at LWSF.
