Activities Participation Fund

LEAF Establishes Activities Participation Fund

LEAF has established a new Activities Participation Fund.   The purpose of the Fund is to “Provide assistance to individual students who would otherwise be unable (or would face significant hardship) to participate in the student activities program due to their economic circumstances”.  LEAF recognizes the inherent value of participation in the organized student activities programs and seeks to support low-income students who want to participate.

The fund seeks to help disadvantaged youth participate in the student activities programs in District 742 by covering some of the costs for physicals, essential equipment for participation, transportation and other costs directly related to individual student participation.  With the help of a $5,000 gift from Liberty Bank and two recurring donors, the fund is already helping students who want to participate this fall at Apollo High School, Tech High School, Kennedy Community School, North Middle School and South Middle School.
