Community Connections

We are fortunate to be in a community which thrives on helping one another. We are proud of our connections with local businesses and other community organizations. Neighbors helping neighbors is the way to go.

In this time of COVID-19 we are incredible grateful for our generous community. Individuals and businesses have stepped up with financial, supply and food donations. With all of this help we are open and helping our neighbors. Here are just a few of the folks who have pitched in. Huge thanks to everyone and apologies to those who are not listed.

Mac's Market has been assisting us with getting our orders since the pandemic began and even donated a van full of food. We can't thank them enough!

Wren Murphy encouraged friends and neighbors to donate toiletries.She brought a carload of soap, toothpaste, shampoo, etc so we can add a little something extra to each box of food.

Jay Kennedy, a local photographer,has been taking Porch Portraits. He asks people to donate to LCFS in payment. We have been receiving lots of monetary donations and carts of food! What a wonderful way to celebrate the strength of individuals and families. Thank you to Jay, and to all of our brave community members. Here are just a few of his fabulous photos.
