This holiday season we are doing a toy drive fundraiser for Lynbrook Elementary in Springfield, Virginia. Lynbrook is accredited as a Title I school, which is a federal grant reauthorized under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001. The purpose of this legislation is "to help the neediest schools and students reach the same challenging standards expected of all children" (Public Law 107-110).
This elementary school is home to over 500 students with around 450 students (84%) receiving free or reduced lunches due to the families income. In comparison, the state average is slightly below 40%.
Lynbrook Elementary is overpopulated, understaffed and in need of assistance in any way that we can provide them, let's help the Lynbrook Leprechauns find their pot of gold this holiday season!
We are asking for new toys or cash donations so that at a minimum 100 children will receive gifts this holiday season.
