The LCC Human Care Ministry team recently delivered a check with your donations to Pastor Steve Deombeleg and Jayne Siou at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Hillside, Illinois, to support their Put Your Hands Together (PYHT) Food Pantry. This pantry serves the community by providing food to those in need and also works towards encouraging other churches and food pantries in the area by sharing food with them when we have more than we can distribute.
Immanuel is currently raising funds for a new food pantry building and needs $50,000 to start construction. We encourage everyone to donate to this cause and help Immanuel continue their mission of serving their neighbors in need.
The LCC Human Care Ministry team recently delivered a check with your donations to Pastor Steve Warren at St. Paul Austin Church & School in Chicago, Illinois. The donations are intended to help cover the cost of an emotional service dog for a teacher at St. Paul who is dealing with complex PTSD. The emotional service dog helps interrupt flashbacks, awaken the person from night terrors that replay the traumatic event(s), and helps alleviate anxiety.
The teacher is grateful for the support and continues to ask for donations to cover the cost of the service dog. We encourage anyone who is able to prayerfully consider donating to this important cause.
