Each day, with the support of people like YOU, The Learning Lamp makes a difference in the lives of children—many of whom would fail to succeed in school, if not for our affordable programs.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Contributions to The Learning Lamp level the academic playing field by making high-quality tutoring, preschool, child care, before and after school care and innovative enrichment programs accessible to all children, regardless of income.
AFTER SCHOOL OUTREACH PROGRAM
Your donation to The Learning Lamp’s free After School Program will enable children like Ahmir, 9, and his younger sister Syria, 7, access to a safe place to go after school where they receive help with homework, a hot meal, onsite tutoring and activities designed to help at-risk youth identify their strengths and set goals for the future. Your gift will fund FREE out-of-school help for children in our community to overcome barriers to learning that are outside their control.
OPIOID PREVENTION PROGRAMMING – THIS IS (NOT) ABOUT DRUGS
Did you know that Cambria County has the highest rate of opioid overdose-related hospitalizations in the state? The next highest in the region are neighbors Blair, Somerset and Huntingdon counties. Your contribution will support The Learning Lamp’s opioid/heroin prevention education program, allowing facilitators to share lifesaving information allowing students to understand that prescription narcotics and heroin carry the same risks of addiction, overdose and death. A donation of $50 will ensure a classroom of 25 students receives the program. That’s just $2 per student!
NO GIFT IS TOO SMALL
If you believe in the power of education, invest in a child. Your investment is tax-deductible and a contribution of any size will have impact. Please donate online today!
