Longfellow Love Summer Break Gift Card Drive
Imagine it's Friday, the last week of school. Kids and families are excited to begin their summer plans. But many Longfellow families aren’t sure how they will be able to put food on the table each day, they struggle to afford basic clothing, pay utility and medical bills, or purchase back to school supplies. In preparation for the 3-month Summer Break, we ask you to please donate to Longfellow Love now in order to support our families in need with their many needs over the summer.
THANK YOU to all of our Longfellow parents that donated generously to Longfellow Love over course of the 2017 – 2018 school year. So far we have raised $9,215, we were able to purchase 75 Safeway gift cards to assist families in need with their Thanksgiving meals, 75 Safeway and Target gift cards before the holiday break, and 80 Safeway gift cards before spring Break.
Our goal is to raise another $5,000 to get our families through the Summer, and help them prepare for back-to-school in the fall, or more if we can! Your donation makes a huge immediate impact on a LMS family in need, so please consider donating $25, $50, $100 or more! Again, ALL FUNDS go to the families for their personal expenses.
· Click below to donate online, or

Please donate by the end of the day Friday, June 1, so that we may distribute the cards before the summer break.
