“Let LK Shine”

During this period of community sacrifice, uncertainty, and economic downturn, the Linden Heritage Foundation (LHF) wants you to know that we are still working to preserve the economic and cultural heritage of our beloved hometown.

Like you, we are looking forward to a time when we can gather for live music at Music City Texas, shop and dine in downtown Linden, celebrate Wildflower Trails (this year would have been the 50th anniversary), worship in our churches, and attend sporting events.  In the future we will all appreciate and treasure those experiences even more.

As you are aware, LK schools have been closed. However, the staff as well as students and families are making amazing efforts to provide educational, nutritional, and emotional support despite the challenges.

LHF would like you to look ahead with us to the reopening of our schools.  We ask you to think of our children and grandchildren as part of a new project – “Let LK Shine” – which would be in partnership with the Linden-Kildare Consolidated Independent School District (LKCISD). 

“Let LK Shine” seeks to raise $13,000 for LKCISD budgeted items for the next school year:

  1. $6,000 to enhance funds allocated by LKCISD for new playground equipment for the 2nd– 5th grade campus;
  2. $100 stipend for each teacher ($7,000) to supplement funds allocated in the LKCISD budget for teaching supplies.

If you are in a position to help, donations of any amount are welcomed and appreciated.  Donations may be made by:

  1. Check payable to Linden Heritage Foundation “Let LK Shine” at Texana Bank Linden or by mail to Linden Heritage Foundation, P.O. Box 146, Linden, TX 75563.
