Our impact.

"The Lawndale Elementary School District Educational Foundation Grant provided students a unique learning experience.  Some students have a newfound interest in robotics and programming.  All students improved their thinking and programming skills.  It’s wonderful to hear students say, “This is so fun!” not even realizing how much they are learning and growing." 

— Mariko Wong, Elementary Teacher



Thousand dollars raised.
