Community Comes Out Big For LTlov Back to School Supply Drive
Through generous donations of school supplies, backpacks and cash the Lake Travis community came together and provided our district’s economically disadvantaged students with a great start to the new school year. Nearly 300 campus and grade appropriate school supplies, most of which came neatly packed in a brand new backpack, were distributed directly to students in need through the Lake Travis Crisis Ministry and PODER prior to the start of school. We consider ourselves blessed with the phenomenal outpouring of support and compassion from this great lake community. In addition, as part of a new LTlov initiative, Project Supply Pack, 102 LTISD students coded economically disadvantaged received pre-purchased school supply packs on their desks at campus “Meet the Teacher” events. Applications for this program were made available through PODER and the Crisis Ministries. Plans are underway to expand this opportunity to help even more students through both the gift of preparedness and the gift that comes with avoiding the social stigma associated with being a child in constant need. We especially thank the Ladies of Charity, Lake Travis for the generous donation that helped launch Project Supply Pack.
LTlov would like to thank everyone who donated to this great program, in particular Austin Ridge Church and For The Children, as well as our amazing donation stations: World of Tennis and WOT Pilates, Strandz Salon, Bee Cave Family Chiropractic, Chick-Fil-A, Prosperity Bank, Elite Wellness, Kuper Sothebys, Lake Travis Community Library, Luxe Salon, Moreland Properties, Café Lago and both the Cielo and Madrone Apartments. LTlov also recognizes the hard work of the volunteers at the Lake Travis Crisis Ministry and our student and community volunteers who generously donated their time to make our sixth annual school supplies drive so successful this year.
