LUM Receives $15,000 for COVID-19 Relief
Tippecanoe COVID-19 Response Fund
Lafayette Urban Ministry has been awarded a gift of $15,000 from the Tippecanoe COVID-19 Response Fund. The fund was created by United Way of Greater Lafayette, The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, and Greater Lafayette Commerce, who announced a joint effort to bring relief to the area’s most vulnerable individuals and families. LUM has become a funded partner agency as our community begins to experience the short-term and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak.
The monies will be distributed through the LUM Good Samaritan Program to seniors, children and low-income families to help with recovery, including rent, utility, and prescription medication assistance; access to childcare for families effected by closures; and services and shelter for people experiencing homelessness who lack the resources to stay safe. Thank you to United Way of Greater Lafayette, The Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, and Greater Lafayette Commerce for designating LUM a partner in the important initiative.
