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.

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 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.

For more than 15 years, the Lamb Foundation of NC has supported the Charles Lea Center's Landrum, SC group home for severely intellectually and developmentally disabled adults. Landrum is in the dioses with Tryon and Columbus, NC. The donation is used to buy Christmas gifts for the 16 residents and to celebrate the season with an event for clients, their families and staff. Given the extreme dependence on 24/7 care that the residents have because of their disabilities, trust between the families and staff is so important, especially for this group home. Through the years, Lamb Foundation donations have been used to purchase games and toys for the residents and outdoor items, such as a porch swing and gazebo to allow folks to enjoy being outside. The gentlemen who drop off the check each year seem so interested in the lives of our clients; they always want our folks to be home when they visit!

The NC Knights of Columbus support of Special Olympics North Carolina through the LAMB Foundation of NC is outstanding! The State Council along with many local Councils support SONC on the local and state levels with funding of approximately $100,000 annually while also providing tremendous volunteer support from Council members and their families and friends. We are so grateful for the support given year after year to support our mission to improve the lives of children and adults with intellectual disabilities through our sports and health & wellness programs.
