Luther Manor’s Love Lights Fundraiser is in its 7th year and has raised more than $20,000 in that time for programming and equipment, and residents who have outlived their financial resources. Many thanks to you, Lake Park and the other community churches who have participated in this special fundraiser. So, here I am again collecting donations to beautify the outdoor tree in front of Luther Manor on 92nd St.

Your $5 contribution can be made in memory or honor of a loved one or someone who has inspired you in your life. We all have friends and relatives that have given us inspiration to love and help others in need. You can also contribute $100 for a strand of lights. Every light brightens someone’s heart as well as the street welcoming people inside and outside Luther Manor. I know this donation request is shortly after the October Luther Manor Membership Drive, but know your donation is a gift that will be well used by the Luther Manor Friends organization. And I won’t be looking for any more contributions for Luther Manor this year!

The annual Tree Lighting will be held on Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 4:30PM in the Luther Manor Welcome Center on 92nd St. You can enjoy a short service with songs and sharing indoors, or dress warm for the outside sparkle when the hundreds of lights- is turned on- sponsored by donors including you. I will collect your donations following both Sunday services on November 12, 19 and 26, and December 3.
