What are you willing to to do to change a child’s life for the better?
21st Century Community Learning Center’s Joyce Thompson Graham says there are a variety of ways community members can help, with donations of time, money, games and books.
Now through Dec. 24, Oregon Coast Bank and Lincoln County School District are sponsoring a Holiday Games & Books Drive. Drop off your new or gently used and complete games or favorite books for children in grades 1-8 to help make learning fun – games like dominos, Blockus, chess, Uno, checkers, Yahtzee, Rummikub and Trionimos, just to name a few.
Donations may be dropped off at Oregon Coast Bank locations in Lincoln City, Toledo, Newport, and Waldport; and the LCSD District Office in Newport.
The 21st Century Community Learning Centers offer academic intervention to Lincoln County students with afterschool programs at seven locations – and your support can make all the difference.
When making your year-end charitable donations, consider a financial gift to the 21st Century Community Learning Centers. A $100 donation will provide hot meals, homework help, tutoring, learning activities and transportation for a Lincoln County child for a full 10-week session. Financial donations of any amount are gratefully appreciated.
Another way to help is to volunteer your time at one of LCSD’s afterschool sites: Crestview Heights School and Seashore Family Literacy, both in Waldport; Sam Case Primary School in Newport; Siletz Valley Charter School; Taft Elementary School; Toledo Elementary School; and Neighbors For Kids in Depoe Bay.
