LCS has a new Google Group! What is a Google Group? A Google Group is a type of LISTSERV where you sign up with your email and we send out messages to the group. Our new Volunteer Coordinator designed this program to keep you informed about volunteer activities, events, news and needs of LCS. The group is a one way communication system, meaning that only LCS can post messages to the group and no one can reply to the messages. This means that you will not receive any unwanted emails to your inbox. You can sign-up at the new volunteer blog at www.lcsvolunteersde.blogspot.com. or go to http://groups.google.com/group/lcsdeorg.

Sign Up for the Walk Run Online

Our revamped website (www.lcsde.org) has an interactive form for signing up for the Hunger Walk Run. We believe this is going to make it much easier to tabulate participants and results. You can sign up on line, pay on line, or sponsor someone on line. We look forward to seeing you at 9:00 a.m. Saturday, September 15 in Rockford Park.

LCS Staffer Shines

A woman we helped recently called our executive director to compliment Assistant Program Director Aaron Ballett for the way her case was handed. She was seeking security deposit help because as a victim of domestic violence she needed to get out of an unhealthy environment and into a safe place. With Aaron’s help we were able to grant her $600 toward the $1200 deposit on a new apartment. She said Aaron was a big help, answered all her questions, returned every phone call and was pleasant throughout the whole experience.

ELCA Social Ministry Award

LCS presented its annual Social Ministry Award to JoEllen Freida – a six year board member, secretary, and all-around volunteer – at the ELCA DE-MD Synod Celebrate Ministry Dinner.
