LCDC has started a fundraising page to help raise money for our school playground. We are hoping to get funding for some “loose parts” play materials that will support our children’s natural desire to build on the small playground. Below is a link to the Donors Choose page we have set up. You may share this link on your social media accounts or with family and friends to help us meet our goal.
We are excited to work together to bring these materials to our students. We know this is such an important cause, and will greatly impact the students at our school.
Be sure to let people know that they can use the code LIFTOFF, which will allow Donors Choose to match any donation made in the next 7 days.
Thank you for helping to support our students. You are all amazing!
Laredo CDC Families,
