Lynwood – The Lynwood Partners Educational Foundation (LPEF) has launched an emergency fund in response to the COVID-19 global coronavirus pandemic that will meet the immediate and emerging needs of Lynwood Unified School District (LUSD) students and families.
LPEF is working together with LUSD and its staff to identify the immediate needs of students and families, and has set a target to raise $100,0000 to cover costs associated with expanding services for families in need.
“As each of us confronts our own set of challenges, we realize that many of our Lynwood families have lost their jobs. We are fortunate to be working with our Lynwood Partners Educational Foundation to raise much-needed funds,” LUSD Superintendent Gudiel R. Crosthwaite said. “This is the opportunity for us all to stand together and support our community members who truly need us.”
The fund will provide basic necessities for families, like food and supplies, along with educational tools necessary for remote learning and social-emotional support. To learn more about the fund or to donate, visit www.lynwoodedfoundation.org.
