Support LSS Staff
As our organization rises to the recent healthcare challenge, many of our supporters have asked how they can help. Over the years, LSS has helped employees in need through a benevolent fund called Christ Care. This fund is a result of a resident’s request years ago for a way to offer financial assistance to employees during a crisis. Christ Care is supported by the generous gifts of LSS residents, family members, employees, and companies related to LSS. The current COVID-19 crisis will be a financial stress on many of our staff as they need to find alternative childcare arrangements, may need to take additional time off, or other possibilities that may arise during this unknown situation. Your support can make a significant difference in our employees’ lives as they work tirelessly to protect and care for our residents.
If you would like to make a donation, you can mail it to our LSS Foundation at 1150 Hanley Industrial Ct., St. Louis, MO 63144 or you can give online through the Give Online button above. Your gift will be a blessing to LSS employees and their families.
