Lutheran Community Services Receives
Bank of America Grant

November 14, 2013, Wilmington, DE – Lutheran Community Services (LCS) has received a $10,000 Critical Needs Grant from Bank of America Charitable Foundation to help the agency with its homelessness and hunger prevention programs in Delaware.

LCS will use the funds from the Bank of America grant to purchase food to stock its distribution sites, and to provide grants and loans to people facing homelessness because they are behind in their rent, mortgage or utilities, or need a deposit to secure decent housing.

“Bank of America’s investment in our organization will enable us to continue to have a positive impact as we provide much needed food distribution, nutrition programs and housing assistance for the low income community,” said LCS Executive Director Jean Warren. 

LCS provides emergency food, homelessness prevention, and other important services for low income individuals and families in Delaware. It has been serving the community since 1959. Projections indicate that by the end of this year, through all of its activities, LCS will provide over 100,000 instances of service.  Its food distribution network includes 13 sites in New Castle County and one in Sussex County.
