Help GDP Provide COVID-19 Relief to Lincoln Families

The Golden Dragon Project is working together with community donors, Lincoln teachers, and staff to support our families who are experiencing food and financial insecurity as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. GDP and other community donors have supported 213 families through over $20,000 in donations in the form of grocery gift cards since April 2020. We’re asking for donations to the Principal’s Discretionary Fund to support continued assistance to our families in need. To donate, please click here.

You can also donate by check. Checks should be made out to the “Golden Dragon Project at Lincoln School.” Please include “COVID-19 Relief” in the memo line and mail checks to Golden Dragon Project at Lincoln Elementary, 225 11th St, Oakland, CA 94607.

Thank you for helping us to support Lincoln Families!
