John G. Lapham III

Our Wooten Champion

Thank you family and friends

We are very humbled to have been presented with the opportunity to receive donations on behalf of our long-time board member John Lapham. We know John gave to many causes and so were very humbled to hear of his friends' interest in supporting our work providing educational support services for students in grades 3-12 in the South LA area.

Thank you for your gift in his honor. Thank you Steven Oh for reaching out and to the friends who inquired.
