United Way of Franklin County recently announced that Lake Christian Ministries has been named its newest affiliate agency.
Lake Christian Ministries provides food, financial aid, clothing and household goods to qualified clients in order to avoid homelessness and strengthen families. The nonprofit operates with an all-volunteer staff.
Pat Koger, executive director of United Way, said the affiliate status would allow donors in the upcoming campaign who wish to support LCM to designate all or part of their contribution to the agency.
Roy Enslow, president of United Way’s board of directors, presented a “United Way helping here” sign to LCM representatives. He explained that they would become part of the United Way family, which includes 16 partner agencies and 32 affiliates.
“Our campaigns focus on raising funds to help these agencies. That’s how we help our community,” he said.
