Calling all Lenape High School families, Lenape alumni, the Lenape-Mount Laurel community, friends and family: Let’s show the upcoming graduates of the Lenape High School’s Class of 2020 our support!

The PTO and parents are putting together a special graduation gift bag full of merchandise and gift cards for each and every senior.

No Disney trip, no prom, no senior spring sports, no senior recognition awards, no senior community service day, no Project Graduation — and now the reality of a virtual graduation. The Class of 2020 seniors will not have those special moments that give them closure on the high-school chapter of their life.

But you can do a little something extra to create a uniquely happy memory for them by helping in a couple different ways.

Here’s what you can do: Do you own a local business or have a connection to someone who might be able to donate merchandise to our gift bags? Please email Mt.laurel.lenapehspto@gmail.com to discuss a way to help.

Or you can Venmo a monetary donation, which helps fund the purchase of items for the bags, by sending money to @Lenape_PTO. Please be sure to write “Class 2020” in the comment section so we know exactly what the funds are for.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our Lenape seniors.
