“Let LK Shine” Fundraiser A Success

The Linden Heritage Foundation (LHF) proudly supports our Linden-Kildare Schools.  The majority of our members are graduates of LK who have very fond memories of the school and its great teachers.  Now, more than ever, our teachers and students deserve our support which was the motivation behind our recent fundraiser.

Over 30 individuals made donations to “Let LK Shine” to accomplish its goal of raising $12,000.00.  Many donors contributed  in memory or honor of a teacher they had when attending LK.  It seems that great teachers have impacted thousands of lives in a profoundly significant way.

The Foundation presented two checks to LKCISD with Keri Winters, Superintendent, responding:

Our teachers have been informed that a $100 stipend ($6,000.00) has been added to enhance funding available to purchase classroom supplies the cost of which have increased in this new learning environment. The other $6,000.00 has been added to the LKCISD budget for enhanced playground equipment and outdoor games for the elementary and junior high including  new balls for soccer, basketball, football, volleyball and dodgeball; tetherball poles, balance beams, “gaga pits” and climbing walls.

Jo Anna Duncan, LHF President, thanked LKCISD for providing a quality education to the children of Linden in these unprecedented times.
