The LAMB Foundation has been a faithful supporter of our mission of loving, living and learning for the differently able for over 15 years. Holy Angels is a nonprofit 501c3 residential facility in Belmont, NC that provides specialized round-the-clock care for children and adults with intellectual developmental disabilities and delicate medical conditions. The LAMB Foundation, as well as the individual Knights of Columbus Councils, have dedicated their prayers and support to assisting us in providing the highest level of care for those we are privileged to serve. They have provided funding for adaptive equipment, mechanical lifts and transportation to name a few. They have always been eager to have their members come tour, learn more about our mission and develop a mutually beneficial partnership with our agency - because both Holy Angels and the LAMB Foundation strive to serve "the least of these" in all that we do.

Every year the LAMB foundation helps provide additional resources to special needs classrooms right in our own community! The teachers in these programs are better able to access furniture and teaching materials that are suited to meet their learning and behavioral needs. This continues to be a very important program that benefits everyone!

I've been involved with Operation LAMB for over 15 years. I've watch it grow from giving to about 10 charities to over 40! The money collected goes to the teachers of Cabarrus County. The teachers send pictures of their students using the classroom supplies and trips taken (community based training) with the money donated from the funds of Operation LAMB. The teachers are very grateful for the funds and can't wait for the letter from the Knights to request funds each year. It is truly a vision to see the smiles on the faces of the students and teaches when they receive the funds. I truly believe we ere making a difference.

This organization keeps all of its proceeds in North Carolina. In addition, 85% of all funds collected remain in the local community. All manpower is volunteer, so no overhead goes to cover salary expenses. If you know anyone with a special needs child, you know how much it means to see the community come together and provide support for education supplies, activities and skills training.

I have been involved with LAMB Foundation of North Carolina for the past 8 years and can honestly say that when I tell people what Lambs about and how the donations are distributed they are impressed by the way this charity is handled. I plan to stay involved with LAMB as long as possibl.

I have visited two residential centers that LAMB contributes to. Just mention the LAMB Foundation and the smiles on the staff tells all. Having given checks from LAMB to several teachers of special needs children, I have seen for myself how this helps. A great organization run by great people!

I have been familiar with the work of the LAMB Foundation for over 15 years and know of the people and organizations that have benefited from the support of LAMB. I have a family member with Down Syndrome and see the benefit that Special Olympics offers. Thank you to LAMB for supporting our local and state Special Olympics and Special Education classes.

The LAMB Foundation of NC serves those who are truly in need. As a volunteer funds-raiser for almost twenty years I have seen and witnessed the generous financial support by people of all walks of life. With even being asked, people donate financially when they see that the donation is going to the LAMB Foundation.

When I have visited Holy Angels in Belmont, NC it shows you how lucky we are to have good health. It also shows the love others have to help those that do not have good health. Thanks to organizations like this that we can support and see Gods work being done.

I have volunteered to accept donations to L.A.M.B. organization for years. I stand outside a store, which always give us permission, and accept donations. When people understand who and what we help they give generously without reservation. I never need to "solicit" nor attempt to "talk people into donating".

I have volunteered with the Lamb Foundation of NC for over eight years, the first three years as a helper and the last 5 years as a director. What a rewarding experience it has been! I have met the nicest people and have seen firsthand the goodness and generosity of the public at large. Our work and the donations we collect mainly go to support those with intellectual disabilities. As a director, I have met many of the people we support, people with whom I would otherwise never come in contact. This experience has opened my eyes to the challenges some people have and has helped me to become a more caring person. I would not trade these experiences for anything.
