Due to COVID-19, LCFS has had to postpone a number of events; additionally, we are re-imagining other events to ensure that our staff, volunteers, and donors can all remain as safe as possible during this unprecedented time.
#GivingTuesday is December 1, 2020. This year, LCFS is seeking your support to raise $15,000 to support our Pando Aspen Grove of Community Heights (Pando) program to help youth ages 18-24 who are experiencing homelessness. You can double your impact this year! Through the generosity of our Agency and Foundation Board of Directors, we have established a 1-1 Matching programs for donations recieved, up to $7,500 in total donations.

Tecumseh's Trail Challenge
Sven is once again hitting the trail! While past challenge walks have been in Europe, this year he is staying a little closer to home and walking Tecumseh's Trail through Southern Indiana in September, October, and November 2020.
This year, Sven would like to dedicate his walk to Christel DeHaan, who passed away earlier this year. Christel was a strong supporter of Sven's challenge walks which raise funds to support the Sharing Place Food Pantry.

Recently Completed Events:
Our first virtual presentation for our caregiver support series was held Monday 11/23/20 at 11:00 am. In collaboration with Applegate & Dillman Elder Law, LCFS hopes to offer a series of virtual events in the coming months to support our friends who are caregivers for their families.
Our friends at Applegate & Dillman offered the virtual "Bowl of Comfort" Cooking Class. This was an opportunity to make your own batch of Potato Soup - perfect for these chilly fall days - and learn some self-care tips to help you and your loved ones cope with stress over the holidays. If you missed this opportunity - you can still make yourself some soup - just click on the link above for the recipe.
LCFS celebrated our newest program - Pando Aspen Grove of Community Heights (Pando) with a ground breaking ceremony on November 17, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.

This annual day of service took place on the LCFS campus on Sunday 9/13/20. The majority of the projects were outdoors and we had a safety plan in place to promote social distancing. Thank you Brady Gurganious for organizing the day of service, and a huge "Thank you" to all the volunteers who came out to help with our campus beautification activities!
If you would like to organize a day of service activity, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On 9/18/20 LCFS had our first ever "virtual" event - "Celebrating LCFS Volunteers!"
Due to COVID-19 safety precautions LCFS opted to honor our volunteers through a virtual event rather than our traditional volunteer luncheon. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Sharing Place Food Pantry. Special thanks to our event sponsors: Servants of Christ Lutheran Church, Bose McKinney & Evans, and Anthem.
Learn about the event on our special "Celebrating LCFS Volunteers" webpage https://www.lutheranfamily.org/celebrating-lcfs-volunteers/celebrating-lcfs-volunteers.html
