February 2015 - The ladies from Harbor Hills Country Club in Lady Lake have been a sponsor for Lake Hills School for several years. This year they have made a generous donation of $2,500 to provide mini-iPads for our students. Their gift enables several of our non-verbal students to effectively communicate in ways they may never have otherwise. Their generosity will definitely make an enormous impact in the lives of our students. Our staff would like to publicly thank the Harbor Hills Ladies Charities for their wonderful gift!

Their generous donations have given our children a new found freedom of mobility and independence.
