The FPCPA has recently supported holiday drives for the Little Eagle, SD, community. This summer we can help by providing backpacks and school supplies for the nearly 90 students at Little Eagle Grant School, grades K-8. Less than 10% of Little Eagle K-8 students are proficient in math and less than 10% are proficient in reading. 100% of students are eligible for the free/reduced lunch program. The school operates four days each week. It’s more than 29 miles to the nearest eraser or pencil.
To put the needs in perspective: the average family in the United States plans to spend $272 this year on backpacks and school supplies. The Friends of Eagle Rock are budgeting $175 per child for a campaign total of $15,750 as well as $6,000 for requests for special science and math projects, items for teachers/classrooms and for the upgrades to the classroom for second and third graders.
That’s a total of $21,750 and they need your help to purchase needed items. Here’s the link to make a tax-deductible contribution: https://www.mightycause.com/donate/Littleeaglefriends.
