Good Samaritan Fund
As people in our congregation and community continue to suffer the impact of
our recent recession, our congregation has a unique opportunity to care for
its neighbors. If you are in need of assistance because of a recent job loss
or other financial struggles, please know that you can apply to the EKLC
Good Samaritan Fund for financial assistance. If you are a family who would
like to help out people who are struggling, but you haven't quite figured
out how, consider making a gift to the Good Samaritan Fund. You will know
that the money is being used to help people buy food and gas, cover housing
expenses, or bring relief from high medical bills and other expenses.
