Mothers come to us because food stamps can’t get them through the month. After a pink slip, Robert, a teacher lived in a motor home. He came to LSS for groceries, clothes, and a weakly meal. Mike, an LSS intern first came to us because there was no food in her cupboard.
Local students have a scholarship, but can’t afford the dorm. Many live in cars, shower in the gymnasium, and come to LSS for something to eat. Our pantry is often the last option people have.
