Due to COVID-19, LCFS has re-imagined our events to ensure that our staff, volunteers, and donors can all remain as safe as possible during this unprecedented time. We currently are planning to have a blend of virtual and in-person opportunities.
We will be offering a monthly Caregiver Support virtual opportunity - check back soon to see what coming up in October!
Join LCFS and Applegate & Dillman on for this virtual workshop for helpful tips for creating your very own Legacy Letter. This is tool that can be used to pass on your values, family history, and treasured memories. Contact Kristen at Applegate & Dillman to sign-up!
Recently Completed Events:
Thank to all our volunteers who joined us at Ft. Harrison State Park! We had a wonderful afternoon as we recognized our volunteers and raised funds to support our Sharing Place Food Pantry. We were honored to have Jennifer Vigran, the CEO of Second Helpings, join us as our keynote speaker and Dylan Allison, the Ft. Harrison Naturalist as a guest speaker!
Thank you to all who came to celebrate our Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony! We also hoped that you enjoyed the panel discussion earlier that day in the LCFS Chapel and that you gained more information about Pando and some of the challenges associated with youth homelessness. Pando Aspen Grove of Community Heights (Pando) Permanent Supportive Housing is now open! Please check out our video page for links to recent news coverage.
The Kind Walk/Run/Bike Event on 5/22/21 at White River State Park was a great success! Thanks to all the participants and our wonderful sponsors who helped make this day possible.

Once again, our friends at Applegate & Dillman extended the invitation for LCFS supporters to join them for these virtual experiences. In March, the program had a special guest - Board Certified Music Therapist Allegra Hein - to share about the benefits of music to our mental and physical health. In April, we were joined by Kimberly Wilson from Marquette Manor, who provides the materials and instructions to make a spring wreath. In May, all participants were provided with beautiful fresh flowers to make their own fresh floral arrangement under the guidance of a professional florist! Building a Birdhouse and learning about how to welcome birds to their new home was the topic for June. Christmas in July was the theme for the July session!
If you missed these events, we are planning additional opportunities to support caregivers in the coming months. Stay tuned for more information!
