who we are:
Lindbergh Lights the Way (LLTW) is a committee of the Foundation making a difference in the Lindbergh community. We focus on students and their families who need a helping hand with participation in school events or the basic needs of living. The committee is led by Lindbergh Schools' social workers, parent volunteers, and community leaders.
WINTER 2022 RECAP
The Giving Tree was once again a huge success! We helped to make the holidays a little brighter for 47 Lindbergh families and we could not have done it without the amazing support we get from the Lindbergh community each year. We had 133 donors participate that we know of, but many of those people coordinate with friends, family members, co-workers, and student groups. So the real number of donors is probably much closer to 200! Just amazing. This year we raised nearly $2,500 in cash donations and estimate in kind donations (gifts and gift cards) at around $16,000!! We are so grateful to all who participated, we truly could not make this program happen without your care and support.
Lindbergh Lights Up The Holidays is our annual Utility Campaign. The campaign runs through the holiday season, but the funds raised will be used throughout the entire year to help Lindbergh families with gas, electric, and/or water, who find themselves in a critical situation. We’d like to thank all who took the time to donate! Donations were made online ($550.00), through the QR Code provided at Liliana’s Italian Kitchen ($2400), and through making donations while visiting the Dougherty’s light display. We are so grateful to the Dougherty family, their total donation is $1000.00! Tim Pieri, owner of Liliana’s is making an additional $2,000.00 donation! He and has staff work tirelessly throughout the holidays to promote this campaign, even opening and working on their day off to make an incredible impact. Total donations were just under $6,000.00. We sincerely appreciate everyone who took the time to donate. Big or small your donation is touching the lives of our families in times of need and we thank you.

HOW WE HELP
Light Up the Holidays Utility Program
Difficulties can arise at any time for families, but the holidays and winter months can be especially challenging. We help students and families with temporary assistance with utility bills. Donations are used for crediting utility accounts such as Electric, Gas, and Water. Our goal is to simply provide some much-needed relief to families who find themselves in a crisis.

The Giving Tree Program
The Giving Tree Program helps Lindbergh families who may not be able to afford to purchase gifts for their children, and special items during the holidays. We are anticipating that the need may be greater this year and are doing our best to prepare for that.
Helpful tip: When thinking about how large of a family you might sponsor, a family with 1 child would cost approximately $175 and a family with 2 children would be about $275.
Please fill out this form to let us know what type of support you would like to provide.
We thank you for your wonderful support of our families and look forward to working with you!
College Kick Start Program
This program provides essential school supplies, personal care items, and dorm supplies to qualified Lindbergh graduating seniors who are continuing their education in the fall, and who otherwise would not be able to provide these items for themselves. We help students make the experience of transitioning to college or technical school as smooth as possible.

Summer Café Program
This program provides lunch for students in need during the summer months.
For some Lindbergh students, a school meal is their best or only meal of their day. What happens to those children during the summer? We help by packing and delivering lunches to these students while school is not in session.
Student Activity Funding
We work with area counselors to assist students with costs associated with district activities.
