LCC SA and ALWS sponsorships.
LCC SA 50th Anniversary
The LLL had the pleasure of sponsoring Lutheran Community Care (LCC) SA/NT as it celebrated its 50-year anniversary in 2019.
LCC operates in South Australia and the Northern Territory and provides emergency support to vulnerable people in need in their community, from accommodation to family support, counselling, food and clothing and emergency assistance.
Starting from humble beginnings in 1969, LCC has grown to provide social welfare services at 19 sites and offers 50 community programs throughout the two states.
The year of celebration culminated in a fundraising gala ball in November, where guests gave thanks to more than 500 volunteers who donated their time to LCC and raised funds for future programs. The event was deemed a great success with more than $60,000 raised from the 300 distinguished guests.
The LLL congratulates LCC on such a milestone and wishes it every success in the future as it continues to provide help and care through the love of God.

Walking any which way for ALWS
The LLL has this year continued its support of the Australian Lutheran World Services (ALWS) Walk My Way events, which raises funds for refugee children to attend school in countries such as Kenya, Somalia and Djibouti.
Due the impacts of COVID-19, large gatherings were not possible this year. Not letting an opportunity slip, the organisers of Walk My Way creatively changed the name to Walk Your Way, encouraging participants to continue to raise funds for children in need by walking in their local area. Walkers embraced the challenge to enjoy the outdoors during social distancing by taking the opportunity to tackle walking trails around their homes.

ALWS received $10,000 in financial support to meet the needs of staging 2020 Walk My Way events.
