CDC Contributes $22K To Lansing Schools

 

computerwoman1The Corporate Development Committee(CDC) of Lansing presented a $22,000 donation to the Lansing Central School District (LCSD) at last week’s Board Of Education meeting. The donation was made possible by the proceeds from the annual CDC fundraiser. The most recent fundraiser included a fun 80’s dance party, silent auction and corporate donations. The sole purpose of the CDC and it’s donations to the LCSD, are to support and further the educational opportunities of Lansing students by providing equipment and technology to the school district.

“We are thrilled with the growing partnership between the CDC and the LCSD,” said CDC President and Lansing parent, Stephanie Perine. “We continue to look into the future for additional opportunities to make contributions that can benefit all Lansing students.”

“The Lansing Central School District community is truly grateful for all of the organizers and volunteers who each year create a wonderful community event with the purpose of fundraising to increase student engagement and use of technology in our schools,” said Chris Pettograsso, Superintendent of Lansing Schools. “All members of the Lansing school community benefit greatly from the improved infrastructure support that will allow us greater accessibility and use of the technology we currently have. On behalf of the Lansing Central School District administration, faculty, staff and students, thank you!”

The CDC has already begun planning for its 2015 annual fundraiser. You can “Save the Date” for this event on April 25, 2015. The group is also starting a local corporate giving campaign for the fall of 2014. The proceeds from these efforts will be made available for future contributions based on the needs of the LCSD and committee approval.

Pet of the Week

by Rochelle Davis

Eeyore Eeyore has been with us since the end of January. He was rescued from a hoarding situation, so living in a real home with humans was a whole new experience for him. He is a sweet, playful little guy that has lots of energy. He is frightened of strangers but improving, learning that most of the people who come around have treats for him. His housebreaking is almost complete, but he is still afraid of being on a leash, so his ideal home would have a fenced yard or be on a safe, rural property where he can accompany you without a leash. He likes dogs (the bigger the better!), confident cats and horses. Once he knows and trusts you, he loves belly rubs and sitting on the back of the couch to snuggle.  If you have a quiet home and the patience to help Eeyore learn about the world at his pace, contact his foster mom at This email address is being protected from spambots.
