Lake-Lehman Community Outreach has been in existence since 2009 and was created and funded by teachers, staff and administrators. The goal of those involved with the program is to give back to the community by sharing resources and time.
Each member makes a monetary contribution and, in turn, the program provides financial assistance to groups such as local fire departments, Lake-Lehman Foundation, Blue Chip Animal Refuge and other organizations that help students, parents and neighbors.
Teachers, staff members and administrators have conducted food collections and clothing drives for the Back Mountain and Noxen Food Pantries. Additionally, contributions have also been used to support student events in the district such as the annual senior lock-in and the annual Christmas party for students in need.
To date, over $20,000 has been donated to the local community.
