Northview Church Donates Books to LUM

New Books for the LUM Youth Center Library

Recently, the members of the Greater Lafayette Campus of Northview Church gave a special gift to the LUM students — BOOKS!

All of the LUM youth programs are enhanced learning experiences for our students that include a time to read. Whether it is after school, during the summer months or at LUM Camp, reading time is a fun and engaging part of the LUM youth curriculum. That is why this gift from the members of Northview Church is so special.

If you or your group wishes to support LUM Youth Programs you may donate “needed items,” like books, make a cash donation, or volunteer. Cash donations are preferred because they allow LUM to purchase what is needed, when it’s needed. Donations of “needed items” are also welcome and appreciated. If you wish to donate items to LUM, here is our Wish List. Please either ship or drop off items to the LUM Office (420 N 4th Street, Lafayette, IN 47901).

Thanks again to the Northview Church members for their thoughtful gift and support of LUM and the students we teach.

Purdue Athletics Makes Unique Donation

Women’s Basketball Hosts “Teddy Toss”

Kristi Hogue, LUM Youth Programs director; Wes Tillett, LUM executive director; and Kaitlyn Lilleberg, Purdue Athletics representative.

On December 19, the Purdue Women’s Basketball team hosted their annual Holiday Bash. Fans were invited to wear their ugly Christmas sweaters, meet Santa Purdue Pete, and participate in “Teddy Toss.

During halftime of the game, Boilermaker fans threw lots of new stuffed animals onto the court. It was a fun holiday frenzy, and all of the stuffed animals were recently donated to LUM. The stuffed animals have since been distributed to the children of LUM clients and students enrolled in the LUM After School Program.

Thanks to the Purdue Women’s Basketball team and Athletic Marketing & Fan Experience crew for their kind donation.

LUM Received All Stuffed Animals Collected

On December 23, the Purdue Women’s Basketball team hosted their annual Holiday Bash. Fans were invited to wear their ugly Christmas sweaters, meet Santa Claus, and participate in “Teddy Toss.”

During halftime of the game, Boilermaker fans threw hundreds of new stuffed animals onto the court. It was a fun holiday frenzy for a few minutes. All of the stuffed animals were then donated to LUM. Since then, the stuffed animals have either been distributed to the children of clients or incorporated into the LUM After School Program.
