D103 Humanitarian Relief Efforts
Hello D103 Families,
District 103 is teaming up with the Lake County Superintendents Association (LCS), which represents more than forty school districts in Lake County, to provide humanitarian relief to Europe through a donation drive. Lake County schools are working with humanitarian aid groups to understand what supplies are needed, and District 103 will focus our drive on the collection of new:
Hygiene kits (toothbrush, toothpaste, soap)
Socks (all sizes)
Powdered infant formula
There are numerous ways that you can get involved if you would like to help. This donation drive is completely voluntary.
Donate supplies listed above. You can drop off your donations at any District 103 school front office.
Make Cards/Notes: We will be accepting cards or notes with well wishes to send to the recipients of these supplies.
