Today, June 16th, the Lander Community Foundation distributed $17,500 to three organizations.
In the three rounds of LCF COVID-19 Relief Fund grants, the Lander Community Foundation has disbursed $37,750 to eight, local groups—Almost Home Wyoming, The First Stop Help Center, The Lander Care & Share Food Bank, The Lander Pet Connection, The Good Samaritan Community Meal Program, The Friday Backpack Program, Fremont In-Home Care Services, and Help for Health Hospice.
Deanne Trumble, director of The First Stop Help Center shares, “The generosity and support of our Lander community is incredible. We are so grateful to the Lander Community Foundation and our donors for providing assistance in the last few months.”
LCF will continue to provide financial support to Lander organizations responding to the needs of those directly impacted by COVID-19 throughout the coming months. Organizations are encouraged to request funding from the LCF COVID-19 Relief Fund if they need help. Additionally, organizations may receive more than one grant from the Relief Fund.
“We don’t know how long our community will be combating the effects of COVID. We are doing what we can to help support the organizations who are helping those directly impacted by providing food, shelter, and basic human needs,” comments executive director Mary Greene.
LCF expects the scale and scope of the community’s needs to evolve and grow in the coming weeks. Therefore, the foundation is dedicated to adapting to these changing needs and making the greatest impact we can through the Relief Fund and other community-based COVID response programs.
