Dear Family and Friends, 

As many of you knew, Mark was non-verbal when he started at Frankie Lemmon School (FLS). He received AIT (auditory integration training) and speech therapy. Mark currently speaks, reads, and recognizes 1000+ words. He also received physical and occupational therapy through FLS. Mark currently participates in basketball, baseball, bowling, and dance (jazz/hip hop). He has numerous blue ribbons and trophies through Special Olympics of Wake County, Miracle League of the Triangle, and Raleigh Parks and Recreation. Even though Mark is 19 years old now, he still considers Frankie Lemmon School a large part of his extended family. He loves to visit the school as much as he can! For 50+ years, Frankie Lemmon School has changed the lives of children like Mark by providing a tuition-free, superior education for children with and without special needs. Unfortunately, demand for Frankie Lemmon services far exceeds the current capacity, and the Pre-K special needs population in Wake County is fastest growing in the state! Frankie Lemmon is working hard to address this need. They have plans to continue expanding services and will eventually serve 120 or more children and their families in the next 2 years. Achieving this goal will require a dramatic increase in financial support. That’s why Mark, Allen, and I are contacting you, because we’re helping to give children the life changing education and therapies they need, and deserve through Frankie Lemmon’s #Giving Tuesday Campaign. Mark, Allen, and I are serving on the #Giving Tuesday Campaign Committee. This campaign is led by volunteers to increase support from across the community so that the school can continue expanding enrollment. We are asking for you to please join us in supporting the 2017/18 #Giving Tuesday Campaign. Every gift of any size matters.  You can join through a one-time gift or through monthly giving. Through your gift, you will make a difference for FLS children and their families. The rewards of seeing the children grow and learn – the outcomes of your support! – are simply amazing. Visit for more information and to see how meaningful and rewarding it is to be part of the #Giving Tuesday Campaign. Please Donate Today! *Please put Allen and Debra Brooks in the comment box. On behalf of all the Frankie Lemmon children and their families, we want to thank you for your support. We are proud to be part of the 2017/18 #Giving Tuesday Campaign, and we hope you will join us. Love to All, Mark, Debby, and Allen
