Laura’s Kids Support LUM Camp & Food Pantry

Local Family Fund Donates $2,500 to LUM

Nancy Emig recently surprised LUM with a $2,500 donation. This gift was made possible by “Laura’s Kids,” a nonprofit created in memory of Laura Williams by Nancy & Greg Emig, her sister and brother-in-law and owners of Lafayette Brewing Company.

Laura Williams graduated from Chesterton High School and was a junior at Purdue University when she passed away unexpectedly in 2001. Laura had a special gift for working with children, and her goal was to become a child life specialist working with children with disabilities. In addition to Laura’s Kids, there is a memorial scholarship at Purdue for students in Human Development & Family Studies.

One thousand dollars was designated to support the LUM Protein Food Pantry, and $1,500 to LUM Camp. This generous gift will feed more than 1,000 local families and send 10 local children to LUM Camp next week. On behalf of the LUM students, THANK YOU to Laura’s Kids, the Emig Family and our friends at Lafayette Brewing Company.
