Etta Buckman & Robert Long #GivingTuesday Campaign
For over 50 years, Raleigh’s Frankie Lemmon School has transformed the lives of over 1,500 special needs children and their families. COVID-19 continues to highlight the necessity of FLS by safely providing our families with the essential resources and support required to reach their full potential. Since October, 26 2020, we have been open for in-person classes, allowing us to provide feeding, speech, and physical therapies to over 60 students in their critical development window. Please join me in supporting their efforts!
For me, it’s the profound impact that this school has on the day-to-day lives of our families, thereby creating a significant positive impact on our community as a whole. I believe that every person, regardless of age or ability, deserves acceptance and opportunity. This school offers both to some of the most vulnerable in our community.
I witnessed the momentous change in our littles from the start of school to the end of their first year. I have seen students start the year unable to walk and/or eat independently and end it running throughout the playground and proudly polishing off all the chicken nuggets on their plate. Accomplishments like these, made possible by the personalized instruction and therapy provided by our FLS staff and teachers, empower families and create a sense of belonging. Let’s come together in creating a community that encourages opportunity for all!
WHAT can you do?!
