K-Kids Club presents:
Lions’ Pride for Paradise Week
An online school supply relief effort for classrooms devastated by California wildfires
When: April 22-26, 2019
Help support schools in California devastated by wildfire!
Schools in and around Paradise, CA were hard hit by last year’s wildfires. Most students were forced to relocate due to extreme damage to school facilities and supplies. To see an incredible 15 minute documentary about Paradise’s wildfires and the effect on schools, click here.
Lakeridge will support several Paradise-area classrooms by hosting “Lions’ Pride for Paradise Week,” April 22-26. K-Kids Club, Lakeridge’s community service club sponsored by Mercer Island Kiwanis and the PTA, worked with Color a Classroom With Love to connect with Paradise-area schools and determine their educators’ needs.
A friendly competition between Lakeridge classrooms, during Lions’ Pride for Paradise Week, each grade at Lakeridge will be assigned a specific Paradise-area classroom’s online wish list of school supplies. The Lakeridge classroom that has the greatest donation total (by dollar amount) via the online wish lists and Amazon Gift Cards will win the competition – and receive a party, provided by K-Kids Club! Paradise schools and students win too – gaining sorely needed supplies to help kids learn.
More details soon: online wish lists will be released on Sunday, April 21 right here on the Lakeridge PTA website! If your family wishes to donate Amazon Gift Cards (in lieu of, or in addition to online wish list donations), please deposit them in your child’s classroom collection box – available April 22-26.
