Midlands Gives takes place May 2, 2017

Lexington, SC - Lexington School District Four will be participating in the 4th annual MIDLANDS GIVES, which takes place on May 2, 2017. The Central Carolina Community Foundation (CCCF) will be hosting this event, and the purpose is to raise awareness and funds for various community and non-profit organizations throughout the Midlands Area.

MIDLANDS GIVES is a 24 hour online giving challenge. The funds received will be used to purchase books for our district's PALS (Promoting: Academics, Learning, and Success) program. PALS was developed from our district's strong belief that parenting is one of the most important jobs anyone can have. PALS builds upon families' strengths by providing parents with the information, skills and principles essential for children to become caring, competent, responsible and resilient. By incorporating these key protective factors into their relationship with their children, parents foster their children becoming productive citizens in our society and our communities becoming healthier and safer for families and for children. Through our work and research we found parental involvement that requires a large investment of time, such as reading and communicating with one's child, and the more subtle aspects of parental involvement, such as parental style and expectations, have a greater impact on student educational outcomes. This reality is why we feel the urgency to continue the PALS program. Your gifts will allow us to continue this work! Thank you for your consideration and please contact us if you would like more information on our programs.

Donations must be given online only during the 24 hour period on May 2, 2017
