As part of Lunar New Year celebration, more than 110 families donated over $5,200 to FLITE, with another several hundred from company matches. It was a fundraising effort by the T/E Chinese-American Parents Group to mark the most important and festive of East Asian holidays, known for its family reunions, reconnecting with communities, and sharing joy and bounty. In this spirit of giving, the parent group encouraged children to donate their Chinese New Year red envelopes filled with cash and checks to FLITE. “The Chinese-American Parents group was delightful to work with,” says FLITE board member Barbara Weiner. “FLITE appreciates their generous donation.“
The families are proud to give back to the local community and schools by supporting the mission of FLITE. By helping kids in need, FLITE improves the learning environment for every student in the district.
