Thank you for your continued generosity to the preschool by supporting our fundraising efforts. We are working to raise funds in ways that are both simple and beneficial to you, while giving the preschool money for much needed physical improvements to our aging building, classroom materials and financial aid.

Peace Coffee

We also offer the opportunity to purchase organic, shade-grown Peace Coffee, available in several varieties, through the Preschool. This is delicious coffee, supports fair trade farming and proceeds benefit the Preschool!  Coffee can be ordered monthly and is delivered via your child's preschool bag or can be picked up in the LHUM Church office!
