The Story

Help us get the 2017 school year off to a great start for Lanterman clients between 3 to 18 years whose families are experiencing financial hardship.

Lanterman is receiving a donation of 400 backpacks from Baby2Baby and Premier Healthcare Services, and we’re turning to our community to help us raise the funds to fill them with basic age-appropriate school supplies.

For every $25 we raise, we’ll be able to fill one backpack with supplies, including everything from crayons, markers, glue, scissors and paper for the younger students, to pens, spiral notebooks, binders, rulers and calculators for the older students.

Service coordinators will be nominating their clients who are most in need and clients will receive their backpack and supplies on July 28th at a Back to School event being hosted by Lanterman.

Please support this campaign and help make the fall school year a special time for clients and take a little bit of the stress off of parents who are struggling to send their kids back to school.

Thank you to everyone who supported our YouCaring Back to School fundraiser. We met and exceeded our goal of filling the 400 backpacks being donated with supplies. And with the additional money raised we will be able to purchase 50 more backpacks and fill them with supplies, plus expand our back to school event to include young adults transitioning to college.

As the back to school event is coming up soon, we’ve already started purchasing supplies. Here is a photo collage of the preparations taking place for the event. Thank you again, your contributions will ensure that our school-age clients get their year off to a great start and we can’t wait to share photos from the day of the event.
