Some LUM Donors “Pay It Sideways”


Some Have Donated Stimulus Money to LUM

Many people around the nation have decided to give some or all of their Economic Impact Payment to those who need it most. Some people are giving their “stimulus money” directly to people they know who could use the financial boost. Other people are giving the money to nonprofit organizations that can be trusted to extend help quickly to families in need.
