Local West Lafayette Students Collect Items for LUM


Amberleigh Village “COVID-19 Supplies Drive”


A small group of civic-minded youth decided to do something for their neighbors in need — and the Amberleigh Village COVID-19 Supplies Drive was born. While eLearning from home, Kreesha Saha and her team put together a plan, set the collection date, created a flier with the list of needed items, and engaged their Amberleigh Village neighbors. This past Saturday, all of the items were collected from their neighbors’ porches and stoops. Lea Tindel & Kreesha (pictured) delivered a truckload of supplies to LUM. Most of these items are so hard to find, like disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer. What a blessing!

LUM is so fortunate to live in a community where the youth are eager to help those less fortunate than they — and take action. Thanks to the West Lafayette students,

  • Kreesha Saha (junior), 
  • Mihika Gagare (7th grade), 
  • Hannah Jung (sophomore), 
  • Nesara Thottethodi  sophomore), and
  • Lea Tindel (senior),

for coordinating the Supplies Drive — and to their Amberleigh Village neighbors for their generous, heartwarming gifts. LUM would also like to acknowledge their families and teachers for doing such a great job. If you and a small group of your friends wish to give to LUM in a similar way, please call or email us (765-423-2691 | lum@lumserve.org).

Hunger Hike 2014 – Best Ever


Hunger Hike 2014 – Most Raised in History – $95,000


Hunger Hike 2014 - BR - 199


It’s Still Not Too Late to DONATE to Hunger Hike 2014

  • To donate directly to Hunger Hike 2014, click HERE
  • More information — go to www.hungerhike.org

This year’s Hunger Hike raised more money to date than all past Hunger Hike events. Hunger Hike 2014 this past weekend was filled with excitement, energy and good will. The weather was perfect for both the HH5K Run on Saturday and the Hunger Hike Kick-off event and 3K Walk on Sunday. Hundreds of caring individuals walked, ran, hiked, and donated funds to the Fight Against Hunger.

Thus far approximately $95,000 has been pledged and donated to Hunger Hike — which exceeds ALL past years for the amount of money raised.

The crowd gathered together in Riehle Plaza with one goal in mind – Fighting Hunger. The event this year was special from beginning to end — starting withIMG_1579 the National Anthem sung by Janelle Davis & Annalise Drake from the Harrison High School Performing Arts Program, Zumba with Emily from Parkwest Fitness — and closing with a Hot Dog & Chips picnic for all participants — and music throughout the entire event by DJ Powder from Rat Pak Mobile DJs.

The plaza was also filled with information tables focused on the issues of hunger, voter registration available courtesy of the League of Women Voters, face-painting from the Unlimited Smiles Clown Ministry, and massages from Essential Touch Massage. To welcome the hikers and to kick-off the hike, special guest speakers (see below) offered remarks which included information, words of inspiration and blessings to the hikers just before the main event.

Purdue Pete, the Purdue Crew Team, Purdue Women’s Basketball Team, and Purdue Volleyball Team led the hikers to the route along the Wabash Heritage Trail. The event was successful in bringing much needed attention to the battle against malnutrition, food insecurity and hunger.


hungerhike_HEROStayed tuned for the results for the following Hunger Hike awards: Top Individual Fundraiser, Top Church Fundraiser, 2nd Highest Church Fundraiser, & Top Team Fundraiser (non-church). Along with these winners — next week the Hunger Hike Heroes will be announced — those individuals who participated in both the HH5K Run and the Hunger Hike 3K Walk.
