Grateful for Community
We love hearing from our donors about why they support the community. In 2020, Nimesh Das was looking for meaningful employment and sought the help of Lutherwood’s Employment Services. With the support and guidance of one of Lutherwood's Employment Services staff members, he found a full-time role that he truly enjoys. Wanting to share his gratitude for the help he received, Nimesh has become a donor to the Lutherwood Child and Family Foundation with the hopes of helping others in need. Thank you, Nimesh for your support of others living in our community.
