Walk For Water

Let’s Fill the Jugs: Campus-Wide Community Service Project!

Through Legacy of Giving and the Gazelle Foundation, we are raising money to build a clean water system for the citizens of the Songa region of Burundi. Kids, parents, and relatives can help by collecting, earning, and donating money.

The Lee 6th graders are leading this effort, and they are going to each classroom at Lee to encourage all students to donate their time, talent, or treasure to this cause! Check out one of the amazing powerpoints the 6th graders are using in the classrooms! (It even has a Led Zeppelin soundtrack!) 

Ask your kids about it! They could sell lemonade or do extra chores around the house to earn money for a great cause!

You can donate online (choose Lee Elementary) at and/or bring cash or checks to school and put them in the water jug for your student’s classroom! Let’s fill the jugs and meet the 6th graders’ goal of raising $1,000! That’s only $2.50 per student! Checks should be made out to Walk for the Water, with Lee Elementary in the memo line.

Finally, please join us for the Walk for the Water at the Tony Burger Center on April 27th at 8:30 am. Register for the walk at
