Eagle’s Basic Needs Center Opens at Lake County Campus
The Eagles’ Basic Needs Center is a one-stop shop to provide students with resources to help meet their basic needs such as food, housing and school supplies. In addition the Center includes a “community office” where representatives from local social service agencies, will assist students in signing up for CalFresh and MediCal, accessing mental health services and applying for housing programs.
The goal of the center is to provide students with the essential resources required to thrive while attending LCC. The center operates thanks to the generous funding of local individuals and community organizations. To make a gift in support of the Eagle’s Basic Needs Center please click the link below. All gifts provide direct support to students on the Lake County Campus.
A big THANK YOU to the LDS Churches’ Community Services for contributing more than 120 cases of food for distribution to students at the Eagle’s Nest.
Scholarships, Increasing Opportunities and Supporting Student Success
At the Lake County Campus of Woodland Community College, we believe there is value in offering wider doors of opportunity for our students. Thanks to generous support of individuals and community members, the Lake County Campus provides more than 40 privately funded scholarships each year. LCC scholarship recipients are contributing members of our local communities. Every day you will see our graduates in a wide range of vocations from health care, law enforcement, culinary arts, education, welding and so much more. Your gift to support LCC scholarships will make a lasting impact in the life of a student and the community.
Adopt a 5th Grader, Encouraging Student Success at an Early Age
Adopt a 5th Grader is a program that benefits deserving students in the communities of South Lake County. It is part of the Lake Campus Fund of the Yuba Community College District Foundation. The Adopt a Fifth-Grader program motivates students to complete high school and go to college. The program impresses upon students the importance of education; it promotes and recognizes good study and citizenship habits; and the program targets students who might not otherwise be motivated due to difficult circumstances. A charitable gift of $700 will adopt one fifth grader at a local elementary school in South Lake County. That gift is invested and will grow and by the time the 5th Grader graduates from high school they can receive either a $500 cash award, or a $1,000 scholarship if they attend the Lake County Campus of Woodland Community College.
