LHS is continuing the gift card donation tradition for Spring Break by serving approximately 50 families with gift cards in the denomination of between $10 and $50 to places such as King Soopers, Safeway, Albertsons, Wal-Mart, and Target. We would like to serve as many families as we have requests for, but we could be limited based on the donations received.  Individuals who would like to make a donation can drop-off gift cards (i.e., King Soopers/Safeway/Albertsons/Target, Wal-Mart, etc...) at anytime. However, the sooner the better as it will help allow the Counseling Department to know how many families we can best serve.
