Health Action Network (HAN)
Pre-pandemic, a group of Lincoln parents curated monthly talks to bring health awareness, tools and strategies to students and families, providing support and information on topics like drugs & alcohol, bullying, sex, suicide, mental health, stress, nutrition, etc. Have any interest in helping bring HAN back? We would love a lead curator and welcome any experts in our community to offer a topic and talk. Contact Lauren Holden Kilbane at [email protected].

West Sylvan Students Need Bikes
Have a bike your student has outgrown or otherwise collecting dust in the garage? West Sylvan has a growing group of students whose families have no transportation options beyond public transit. Bikes are one way to support these students so they can more easily get to and from school/activities and relieve some stress on their families. Contact Becky Seidel at [email protected].
