A Message from LEAF
The COVID-19 pandemic has created tremendous disruption and fear in our community. Food Pantry participation has doubled. Basic Needs requests have increased by 900% (yes, you read that right!). We are working hard to identify resources and meet needs, and to equip and encourage our community. Our dedicated volunteers have worked night and day to safely provide food and support to people in need. So much uncertainty faces us today, but we can be certain that we WILL get through this, together.
As the only human services agency working exclusively in the Greater Lyons area, LEAF knows Lyons. We know the people and the "Lyons Got Grit" culture. We have forged relationships with over 20 local government and charitable agencies. If you are in a position to offer an extra measure of financial support at this time, it is needed and greatly appreciated. You have our promise your gift will be used to help your friends and neighbors right here in Lyons, in this time of need. We will push through together!
Join LEAF's mental health therapist, Cherie Maureaux, Thursdays at 3 pm for a 45-minute mental health session. In the meetings, we share concerns, uplifting community stories, and have some laughter and connection. We hope to see you there!
