The gift of PRESENCE

Students need to see and know that people care about them.  Your presence at our events or as a volunteer shows kids they are important assets in our community.  Thank you for your ongoing gift of presence!

We provide many after school opportunities to support and develop the gifts and talents of each LCF student. 

Adult drivers over the age of 25 are needed to help us safely transport our students. Please contact us if you have time and interest to help in this very flexible way.

Fargo's premier, youth-led food pantry in partnership with the Great Plains Food Bank is a great place to help us serve our hungry Fargo neighbors.  Please register on line at SignUp.com to help us serve, love and encourage others. Be thankful everyday, but especially Thursday!
