On Tuesday, August 4, one hundred and fifty (150) yoga mats were brought to the Disaster Response for Families with Children workshop for children’s use after a disaster or to assist a school with COVID-19 preparations.

As our schools are preparing to open during the COVID-19 pandemic and because of the increase in cost to protect the children and staff, this donation was a blessing to each of these schools. That sentiment was echoed by each of the principals and teachers we talked to at these schools.
Young Veteran's Vehicle Donation Need Met
Dean and Carol Ulrich, L.E.R.T. volunteers and members of Immanuel Belvidere in Illinois, donated their 2004 Kia Sparta to meet the need of a young veteran from St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Lombard, Illinois.
Pastor Karim came with him to pick up the car at LCC’s Northbrook office. Thank you Dean and Carol for your generous donation that will provide much needed transportation for this young man in need!
Vehicle Donation Allows a Father Of Seven to Commute to a New Job
Mr. Cathcart will return to work this autumn as a teacher in the Kentucky School System, and although the car he would have used to commute to his newly acquired job recently failed, the Cathcarts are now the grateful recipients of the car donated by Laurie.
Laurie was moved to see that the donation of her vehicle was so appreciated and that it will be used by a family very much in need of such a gift.
