Our community’s gifts – your gifts – to the Foundation enable us to support student achievement and success. We have been fortunate to work with some incredible people who found a passion for our students, our educators and our classrooms- throughout their personal experiences, and as a member of the 2018 Leadership Lawrence class. They came to us at the Foundation with a goal to help fill in the gaps and ensure every students and family has the opportunity to achieve, succeed and graduate future ready, eliminating any barrier of need. With their generosity, we established a new privately-funded program, I.C.A.N. The “CAN” in I.C.A.N. stands for Classroom Angel Network,
The goal is to provide school social workers, counselors and school psychologists within the Lawrence Public Schools funds necessary to meet the immediate and emergency needs of students. Children without running water. Children without a mattress to sleep on. Children without shoes to wear. Children who need socks, underwear, and health and hygiene products, so they can come to school clean, confident, and ready to learn.

Did you know?
More often that not, students miss school because of the lack of basic personal hygiene supplies. If they do come to school, many times they are embarrassed, as acquiring basic hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, and toothpaste can be very challenging for many families.
It is our hope to provide our schools and students with a personal hygiene kit and supplies so that no one student is singled out.
