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

TurtleWaylon Hello, my name is Waylon, but some people here also call me Turtle! I don't know how I ended up here at the SPCA, but isn't it nice that I get yummy food every day? I'm a nice boy who loves to talk about my day to all of our visitors. I'm also quite playful, and will happily entertain you for hours with my antics. Other felines intimidate me, so if you want to take me home, I'd be happiest as the only cat. I have been neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated up-to-date, so if we're the right match, I'm ready to go home with you! Ask an adoption counselor about how to adopt me!
