LifeStream is seeking the community’s support to help raise funds in honor of their 45th Anniversary in 2020. LifeStream is challenging 45 people to donate to their Client Assistance Fund, which allows LifeStream to purchase emergency and essential items for senior citizens and people with disabilities who are in need.
The Client Assistance Fund is built entirely by the generous donations from the community. Last year alone, the fund provided over $17,000 worth of purchases including emergency food, utility assistance, bathroom safety upgrades, medical equipment repairs and more. LifeStream is on track to fulfill even more requests this year as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to take its toll on the most vulnerable. This fund is vital in helping LifeStream purchase these essential items that are not covered by state or federal funding sources.
Donald, a Client Assistance Fund beneficiary, was able to come home from the hospital because of the donations made to LifeStream. Donald spent many nights in pain from a thin mattress, which eventually caused sores on his back so significant that he was placed in the hospital. With funds from Client Assistance, LifeStream was able to purchase Donald a new mattress which allowed him to return home. He now enjoys a good night’s rest free of pain.
Donations to LifeStream’s Client Assistance Fund can be made online at lifestreaminc.org/45for45. You can also mail in a check to 1701 Pilgrim Blvd. Yorktown, IN 47396.
