Throughout this fiscal year, as in the past, efforts were made to reach out into the community to meet the needs of many who are having a difficult time. Over 50 churches, non-profit agencies and governmental agencies were served. In january, a few high school students went to nicaragua to serve low income families in grenada. Funds were raised for two families in need from significant medical bills. Youth haven ranch is a camp ministry that provides a christian camping experience for unerprivileged children. At christmas, lcs elementary students brought in a large supply of games, toys, hats, mittens and scarves as gifts for these children. All students spend three mornings working in the community, such as at fishes & loaves, care pregnancy center, lisd, salvation army, goodwill, adopt-a-highway, tecumseh parks and recreation, humane society, and hope community center. Several times throughout the school year, students visit area nursing homes or adult care centers. The students perform for the residents and work on activities with them. Each winter, the students and staff hold an auction to provide funds for various secondary students and lcs staff who are participating in activities such as a short term mission trip. After filing an application for these funds, each student and/or staff member will receive an allocation of these funds. A deadline to submit an application is established each year. Lsc has endowment funds for the purpose of giving scholarships from the earnings. Donors of endowment funds, in some cases, help establish the scholarship criteria and select recipients of the scholarships. Lcs maintains a financial aid scholarship program based on need and, in part, academic achievement. (see form 990, part ix, line 2 and part iii, line 4a). There are no restrictions or limitations based upon race. Employment of an applicant's parents has some bearing on the determination of general financial need. The financial aid program does not include loans. All financial aid is based on a family financial needs analysis (facts). Elibility is determined by an independent, outside organization.
