Last week, the Tippecanoe School Corporation elementary school principals & vice principals prepared and served meals to the LUM Emergency Shelter guests on two consecutive nights. Shelter guests were greeted warmly & served a wonderful meal. Mark Pearl stated, “It was a very rewarding and humbling experience to serve the individuals at the LUM Shelter last week. I feel much more connected to the entire Lafayette community and better understand what these folks are going through.”
Each of the principals and vice-principals interacted with guests while serving dinner, & some connected with guests during & after dinner. It was clear that the shelter guests were very appreciative; and the impact this had on the administrators was evident as well.
Mike Pinto shared that “It is always both rewarding and humbling to volunteer at LUM — and always nice to be able to offer something to others and also to hear and feel the sincere gratitude offered by the guests.” John Pearl added, “I am awe struck with the impact that LUM and many other service agencies have on the students and families in our school district. They’re often times ‘game changers’ in the lives of our students. Volunteering at LUM provided an inside look at how their programming provides more than just immediate assistance—LUM programs facilitate independence and self sufficiency.”
These were two special nights at the LUM emergency shelter. A big LUM thank you to the Tippecanoe School Corporation elementary school principals and vice principals for choosing the LUM emergency shelter and making these two evening meals so meaningful for our shelter guests.
