Support LAUSD-Thomas A. Edison Middle School’s Adopt a Family Program

The Adopt a Family program is designed to support 50 of the most in need families receive basic needs for their kids. Edison has over 1300 students; 100% qualify for free lunch. Edison Middle School is more than an educational institution in their community; it serves as a hub for resources for students and their families. As a community school, one of their values is to assist the families with their everyday needs. They serve a largely immigrant population with a high unemployment rate, many of the students lack the basic needs such as clothing, shoes, school supplies, food, and school uniform. This event is from July 23rd-August 30th, 2018. Donations of clothing, shoes, school uniform, food vouchers, gift cards, school supplies, backpacks are needed. The support of the community is key in school activities and also a way that you can continue helping their students and families in their social and academics. Not only will your contribution be publicly recognized by the school, but this will also be a great opportunity for you to engage with the Edison community! Drop off location will be Thomas A. Edison Middle School in the main office. Ask for Estephania Vazquez.
