Donate to Ready, Set, Achieve!
Lakeville Area Public Schools is collecting school supplies and other donations for families in need all summer long for Ready, Set, Achieve! —And we need your help. The Ready, Set, Achieve! event equips K-12 families in need with supplies to send their children back to school ready for learning come fall. The event provides school supplies, haircuts, backpacks, clothing, and spirit wear donated from our schools, families and community.
