LUM Service Day – Engaging for Good
Local Students & Church Members Help at LUM
LUM Service Day was Saturday, and more than 30 volunteers helped clean, do yardwork, and assemble new furniture and shelving units for the LUM shelter, youth programs and main office. On Sunday, 25 members of Grace Lutheran Church cleaned and disinfected the LUM Emergency Shelter. They were able to dust, deep clean and disinfect many areas that need more than day-to-day cleaning.
This week, the LUM shelter guests have new chairs and a brighter, cleaner shelter; and the LUM students were so excited about their new cubbies & bins, toy shelves and chairs. The LUM teachers appreciate the new furniture and deep cleaning of the youth center area. The entire LUM staff appreciates the volunteers for raking, cleaning & weeding outside of each property and for cleaning the LUM office, assembling new chairs and organizing our donations closet with shelves and carts. It is incredible how much work was accomplished by these volunteers in one weekend.
