LUM Follies – Raises $14K+
for Local Emergency Aid

2016-04-15 Follies 2016 007 (2) (1280x719)

The fifth annual LUM Good Samaritan Fund Follies was a magical evening for the capacity crowd — & all in support of emergency financial assistance for local families. The LUM Follies stage show wowed the audience, and the meal was scrumptious (especially the cake ala mode). LUM Follies guests bid generously on an exciting variety of Silent Auction baskets and make specific donation using the Butterfly Tree (community needs with donations amounts) — making this year’s LUM Follies successful in many ways.

The best part is that 100% of the proceeds from the LUM Good Samaritan Fund Follies goes to the LUM Good Samaritan Fund. If you missed this year’s LUM Follies and still wish to make a difference by making a donation, click HERE.

Sunday Noon Meal

2015-02-08 CommunityMeal 019 (3)

The Sunday Noon Meal is looking for volunteers to host meals — individuals or church groups, civic organizations, companies, teams, community/collegiate groups, etc. This is a wonderful opportunity for you and/or your group, organization or company to serve your local neighbors on a recurring basis (perhaps once every couple of months). Volunteers would prepare and serve a meal to approximately 40 individuals — Sunday at noon at the LUM Ray Ewry Youth Center, 525 N 4th Street, Lafayette.

Founded in Lafayette around 1989, the Sunday Noon Meal began as a collaboration of several local churches to provide a simple and healthy meal every Sunday for individuals in our community. If you’re interested, please sign up online — click HERE.
