To succeed in school and life, children need ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential skills. This is especially true during the summer months.
For many children, summer is a carefree, happy time when they experience family vacations, trips to museums, parks and libraries. But for others, when school doors close for the summer, educational opportunities cease— along with basic needs such as healthy meals and adequate adult supervision.
These are the children being reached right now through the Lafayette Urban Ministry’s 5th Quarter Summer Learning Retention Program.
It will cost LUM $29,000 to offer 5th Quarter for ten weeks this summer. Included in this amount are four teachers, curriculum, online learning fees, program supplies, snacks, and transportation to field trips.
I hope you will consider helping us to cover these costs.
Your tax-deductible gift of $50, $100, $250, $500, or more, will allow LUM to offer this remarkable opportunity to 60 low-income children this summer.
Won’t you join me in supporting LUM’s 5th Quarter Program? There is no better way to prepare an at-risk child for the coming school year or to narrow the achievement gap separating that child from future success. Put your check in the mail today; or give online at www.lumserve.org/donate.
