Local Meijer Stores Give Significant Gift

Lafayette & West Lafayette Stores Give $15,000

Earlier this year, the leadership at the two local Meijer stores expressed an interest in partnering with LUM to provide support for our community. In December, the Meijer leadership team presented Wes Tillett, LUM executive director, with two checks totaling $15,000. Wes was overwhelmed with the “staggering generosity poured out upon Lafayette Urban Ministry.”
Join us in thanking the leadership team at the Meijer stores in Lafayette & West Lafayette for making this gift happen. This donation is already having a tremendous positive impact on our neighbors in need, especially during these difficult times.
