Charity Golf Tournament – April 24, 2021





The Lake Elsinore Valley Education Foundation (LEVEF) and Wildomar Elks Lodge 2591 kicked off their annual First Book Program by giving brand new books to Withrow Elementary School students in grades TK to 3. This year’s distribution is extra special because of the emotional toll the Holy Fire has taken on students and families since the start of the 2018-19 school year.

Withrow is one of the most heavily impacted schools in the Holy burn scar area, so students have had anything but a normal school year. To avoid the risk of mud and debris flow during inclement weather, Withrow Elementary must be closed each time mandatory evacuation orders are put into effect—a disruption and loss of 10 instructional days since the Holy Fire postponed the school start.

According to LEVEF president Kevin Pape, “We chose Withrow to kick off our First Book Program to give students a needed lift. We were fortunate Dr. Judy White, Riverside County Office of Education Superintendent of Schools, could join us to see smiles first hand, accompanied by LEUSD Superintendent Dr. Doug Kimberly.” Over 500 free books were distributed in 20 classrooms on February 6th.

The First Book Program is one of two LEVEF endeavors to benefit LEUSD students; the second is providing annual scholarship awards to college/trade school bound seniors each spring.

Established in 2007, The Lake Elsinore Valley Education Foundation (LEVEF) was created in honor of former LEUSD Superintendent Dr. Sharron Lindsay, who envisioned it as a lasting way for the community to help support students of all abilities to pursue a college education.

We are also proud of our new program that provides books to elementary age students.

Our next big step starting in Fall of 2018/19 is supplemental funding for enrichment programs that will provide educational opportunities, including academic, artistic, vocational and athletic needs.
