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 Ashley Fleming

Eeyore Eeyore was rescued from an out of county hoarding case and had very little human interaction in his first couple years of life. He was put into a foster home to receive a little extra TLC and to avoid having him wait for his forever home in the shelter. While he was very nervous and scared at first, he is adjusting well and his playful personality has quickly emerged. Eeyore enjoys following his foster mom (and the other dogs and cat) around the house and wants to be included in whatever is going on. He is housetrained, but a little hesitant to go outside on his own. A fenced yard would be ideal in his new home so that he can race around and play. While at first he wasn’t too comfortable being pet and quick movements frightened him, he has improved and does allow his foster mom to pet him and scratch his back while they watch TV. Any adopter would get great satisfaction out of bringing this little guy even further out of his shell. If you’re up for the challenge and willing to help Eeyore reach his full potential, contact the SPCA adoption staff at 607-257-1822 ext. 221 to set up a time to meet him!
