Hands on activities

Annual Projects

  • Backpacks (starts in May): Provide filled backpacks or school supplies for foster and refugee children. Backpacks are distributed before the start of the school year in August.
  • Thanksgiving Bags (starts in September): Provide baskets of, either traditional Thanksgiving or culturally appropriate food for our clients.
  • Angel Tree Gifts (starts in September): Provide Christmas presents and/or gift cards for LFS refugee, older adult, pregnancy counseling, and foster care clients.

Each year Lutheran Family Services helps to provide gift bags as a sign of appreciation for the 100+ caregivers that attend the annual Caregiver Conference in the spring. We give these gifts to remind our caregivers that we are truly grateful for their work throughout the year, and to provide them with little bits of pampering!
