Thanks Hattie!


It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Hattie R. recently celebrated her 7th birthday — and in lieu of presents asked her friends to bring to her birthday party a donation to “help the homeless.” Hattie donated $110 to Lafayette Urban Ministry. What a remarkable girl. Thanks to Hattie, her friends — and her mom (Karah R.), for this generous gift to LUM.

Thanks to every group, company, church and individual who have donated “needed items” to Jubilee Christmas, the Community Thanksgiving Celebration, and all of our other programs.

Wyandotte Kids Welcome LUM Executive Director

wyandotteWborder2Outreach is an important part of the LUM mission. The staff of Lafayette Urban Ministry often get invited to speak to classes, churches and civic groups — about the services of LUM and ways to get engaged and make an investment in your community through LUM.

Recently Joe Micon, LUM executive director, was invited to Mrs. Kelly Garrett’s combined second & third grade HA class at Wyandotte Elementary School to get the students excited about serving (with their family members) those in need right here in their own community. Thanks to Mrs. Garrett’s students at Wyandotte for being so excited & eager to learn.

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.”

2015-03-03 TSC Elementary School Principals 010 (2) (640x640)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 2015-03-04 TSC Elementary School Principals 011 (2) (640x432)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.
