Birthdays are a special time for each and every one of us and we all deserve to have our special day recognized and celebrated. For many LHM residents and clients, experiencing a happy birthday is made difficult by the absence of family and close friends. Lack of funds compounds this problem as almost 100% of residents and clients have incomes below the federal poverty line. That's when their LHM family steps forward to make their day special. Supervision joins with staff members and other residents and clients to provide a cake, special gift and a time of shared birthday fellowship.
The LHM "Birthday Club" was created for donors who wish to assist in making birthdays special. Your gift of $50 or more to this restricted fund will provide a cake, gift and party decorations for an individual's special day. We welcome you to give in honor of someone else or even in honor of your own birthday. If you would like to learn more about the LHM "Birthday Club", please contact Arielle Semer: 419-972-4431, email@example.com.
