What does Della Lamb do? Provides low-income families with early education, child care, youth services, adult services, adult education, transportation, emergency social services, international refugee services, Elementary Charter School education, back-to-school supplies, Thanksgiving groceries and Christmas groceries and gifts.
Della Lamb Mabee Multi-Purpose Center and other Della Lamb youth sites offer educational, athletic, recreational, and cultural activities as well as drug and violence preventative programming for children and youth ages 5-18. In addition, it operates satellite centers throughout the inner city, including an Adult Education Center, Social Services, Transportation Center, and an Elementary Charter School.
What are we making? We are told that Della Lamb would like anything we could make for all ages, male and female alike. She did mention that they like new hats to reduce the instances of lice transfer (an unfortunate reality among families who have to share hats).
