Dear Members of the LHA/OLC Family,
I am writing to share exciting news about “Operation Playground”. If you were a member of the LHA/OLC community in September 2012, you may recall the introduction of “Operation Playground”. This project has made significant progress and is within our grasp. I am confident that when school opens for the 2014-2015 school year, our new playground will open as well on the York Street parking lot.
Since our first raffle in September 2012, we have raised approximately $100,000 for this project. Because of the location change, I am thrilled to also tell you the following:
- The cost of the playground has decreased from $500,000 to approximately $300,000.
- The playground will be safer, bigger and able to accommodate the educational and recreational needs of all our children.
- We will retain blacktop space in the courtyard for an additional play area, as well as faculty parking.
Please help us reach our financial goal. Although there are a variety of ways for you to do this, the simplest way is to go to our website, click on Giving and then “Donate Online” to make a donation using PayPal.
On Monday, you will be receiving an email from Ms. Jaime Lin-Yu, one of our PSA presidents. She will be telling you about all the upcoming events and additional ways you can support us in reaching our financial goal.
In advance, I thank you for all you have done and will do to support this cause. I am determined to make this amazing playground a reality. Join me in making this happen.
With unwavering determination,
Anna Mae Stefanelli
