Covid-19 has had a swift and severe impact on the resources and dollars at LCS. LCS has incurred numerous unforeseen expenses that are having a deep impact on the agency. The need for PPE, additional food and equipment have all taken their toll. Keeping consumers busy during the pandemic has also been costly both in activities like arts and crafts, games and educational supplies but food costs and household needs like paper towels (and yes TP) is also up. Staff is under unique pressure to deliver care while worried about their families as well. Providing support like gas cards for staff who have to travel to and from various facilities has cost the agency thousands of dollars.
When you give to LCS your dollars will immediately go to help purchase needed supplies, food, PPE or phones and or data so individuals who are struggling with the social isolation in the community can connect with their providers, therapists and counselors. You will be helping to ensure that the people most vulnerable in our community are protected, cared for and enjoying a normal quality of life – so crucial in these very uncertain times.
