Help Us Get Ready for School

Help us get the 2019 school year off to a great start for Lanterman clients between 3 to 18 years whose families are experiencing financial hardship.

Lanterman is receiving a donation of 400 backpacks from Baby2Baby and we’re contributing 200 additional backpacks. Plus we already have supplies for 100 of those backpacks. What we need from our community is your help to raise the funds to fill the remaining 500 backpacks with basic age-appropriate school supplies.

For every $20 we raise, by August 2, 2019, we’ll be able to fill one backpack with supplies, including everything from crayons, markers, glue, scissors and paper for the younger students, to pens, spiral notebooks, binders, rulers and calculators for the older students.

Service coordinators will be nominating their clients who are most in need and clients will receive their backpack and supplies on August 9 at a Back to School event being hosted by Lanterman.
