Thanksgiving Food Drive

Each year, Lenape holds a school-wide food drive to collect donations for families in our community. We have many families in need. We are collecting non-perishable food items and grocery gift cards that will be bundled into Thanksgiving baskets for families in our community. If you would like to contribute, please send your donation in to your child’s homeroom teacher between now and November 20th. The list of items needed can be found here. Thank you for all your help with this worthwhile cause.


Toys for Tots

Please consider a donation of a toy to Toys for Tots. We are accepting new and unwrapped toys for children of all ages, November 7th-December 6th. (Grade level with most donations wins a treat.)
