Central Presbyterian Gives $10,000 to LUM
$10,000 to Support Summer Programs at LUM
The leadership and members of Central Presbyterian Church (Lafayette) recently donated $10,000 to Lafayette Urban Ministry to support summer programs, including LUM Camp and 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program. In a recent conversation with the LUM executive director, Wes Tillett, church members asked, “How can we help during this crisis?”
When Wes opened the daily mail and saw a check for $10,000, he was humbled and joyously surprised. This grant was made possible by generous gifts from the Chuck & Jack Horner families, who established the Central Presbyterian Foundation’s Horner Family Fund in 1980 to further the community mission & ministry of the church by funding youth camperships for camping programs.
This gift will have a tremendous impact on the families that LUM will serve this summer, especially the children who enroll in LUM youth programs.
Please join us in THANKING Central Presbyterian, one of the founding LUM member churches, for their continued support of LUM.
