LPIE

It’s official: the Holidays are here! Need a Christmas tree or wreath? Shop Honey Bear Trees across from Acalanes for your Christmas tree and holiday decor! Choose a Noble Fir, Grand Fir, Fraser Fir, or Douglas Fir. Phone orders and a drive-through or delivery option are available this year. Bring this flyer, and Honey Bear will donate 20% of your purchase price back to LPIE.

LPIE recognizes the sacrifices families are facing, and knows that the ask to donate is a big one. Therefore, we are excited to launch our Matching Gift Opportunity on December 1!  Thanks to the generosity of two anonymous families, there is a dollar-for-dollar $60,000 match for all donations made between December 1-31. 

Please join LPIE in helping us preserve an excellent education for our students, even during the most difficult times. Donate in any amount here.

Volunteers for Lafayette Art, Wine & Music Festival

LPIE still needs volunteers to staff the ticket booth at the Lafayette Art, Wine & Music Festival on Sept. 21 & 22. It’s a fun experience … and LPIE is the largest beneficiary, receiving $10,000 from the event last year which in turn benefited our schools. The Chamber counts on our volunteer support. Take a shift and enjoy the festival before or after!

Volunteer to sign up here.
