Client Corner – LUM Tax Assistance Program – Meet Lewis Perrick


ClientMeet Lewis Perrick from Lafayette. Lewis is a client of the LUM Tax Assistance Program.

Like many, Lewis came to LUM for assistance with submitting his IRS income tax forms but soon discovered it was going to be more complicated. He worked with our trained income tax volunteers to not only submitted last year’s taxes but also previous year’s as well.

The final paperwork was submitted last week, and Lewis is thankful for the professional help he received from LUM to put this all behind him.

Mary Anderson celebrates 20 Years with LUM


2014-10-01 MaryAnderson20th 003 (3)Twenty years ago this month, Rev. Carl Malmgren saw something special in Mary Anderson and recommended that she be offered the three-month, part-time position with LUM to coordinate Jubilee Christmas 1994. Malmgren was a member of the LUM Board of Directors and was the chair of the search committee for this position. Joe Micon, executive director, was pleased with Mary’s work with Jubilee Christmas and invited her back in the Spring of 1995 to be the co-director of LUM Camp – another three-month, part-time position. Opportunities like this continued for Mary and in the next few years she served as the Shelter Director, the director of the Summer Lunch program and the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry Director.

In 1998, Mary found her niche when she became the director of the LUM Advocate Program, now known as the LUM Good Samaritan Fund Program. During these early years, Mary was also the director of the Summer Lunch Program and Jubilee Christmas. The LUM Board of Directors demonstrated their confidence in Mary’s work and ability when they asked her to serve as the interim LUM executive director from 2004-2008 (during Joe Micon’s leave of absence to serve as the Indiana State Representative for the 26th District). This was an important time for LUM because they were beginning a capital campaign which would enable LUM to initiate new programs and move into a new office building.

During her tenure with LUM, moving was nothing new. In 1994, Mary started her work with LUM on 8th Street; she served as the director of the food pantry out of a storefront on Main Street; and in 1995 moved to 525 N 4th Street, a new building that would serve as the LUM emergency shelter, youth programs center, and administrative offices. Her final move was in 2010 to her current office in the new administrative building at 420 N 4th Street.2014-10-01 MaryAnderson20th 010 (2)

Today, Mary Anderson could not be more perfectly suited for her role at LUM. Mary directs one program which she founded and another which she has enhanced and modified over the years – the ID Clinic and the Good Samaritan Fund Program, respectively. Reflecting on her 20 years of service to the LUM clients and families, Mary is confounded by how much has changed as well as how many things have not.

Mary looks to two pivotal points in our country’s history as catalysts for change in her work with low income families: the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and the recent recession. After 9/11, our country implemented laws and practices that greatly affected the poor and the homeless. Caring for the “least of us” is no longer a priority in our nation – as it was during the Great Depression and again in the 1960’s – and it may never be again. We must accept this and continue to do the best we can within those parameters. This has made Mary a strong advocate for eliminating the Voter ID law – which makes it very difficult for the homeless and low-income individuals to obtain picture ID and to vote. She is proud that her deposition was included in the US Supreme Court case brought against the Indiana Voter ID law.


2014-10-01 MaryAnderson20th 018 (2)


Mary enjoys getting to know those she serves. It gives her joy and hope to work face-to-face with individuals looking for a little bit of assistance to get past a difficult time. These interactions sometimes also give her some sad moments – especially when she sees poverty passed from one generation to the next. Before this recent recession, Mary saw mostly individuals who were “generationally” poor or “gradually” poor. Recently though there have been more and more individuals who are “suddenly” poor and in need of assistance for the first time in their lives. Individuals who used to help others are suddenly asking for help. Upon reflection, Mary shares that she couldn’t do this work if there wasn’t a social justice component at LUM. She is hopeful and see better days in the future only if there is a focus on changing our laws and priorities to serve each and every one of our neighbors.


2014-10-01 MaryAnderson20th 003 (2)


Through all of this, Mary still feels like she has the greatest job around. She emphasizes that one must be realistic on how much one’s able to offer – and must find ways to keep your perspective. Mary proudly proclaims that she has a life outside of the walls of LUM – and engages in some meaningful activities with her church. She also gives her family much of the credit for keeping her grounded. Originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Mary met her husband while attending Purdue and has been here since. Today, Mary and Mike have three sons and four (of the world’s best) grandchildren.

Twenty years have flown by for Mary Anderson. But for this community, for LUM, for the families and individuals served by LUM – we are so much better off for Mary’s years of service – and her vision for what could be done at LUM which has served as a road map to a better future for all.

What’s Cooking at the St. John/LUM Food Pantry


Submitted by Lynn Johal

It’s 10:00 a.m. on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, and two dozen or so clients gather at the St. John/LUM Food Pantry in downtown Lafayette in anticipation of this month’s recipe demonstration also known as Fishes & Loaves Cooking Class. There’s plenty of chatting as Kathy Murray, nutrition specialist from Purdue Extension, prepares to whip up a delicious meal for the cooking “students” in attendance. Each month Kathy create a meal based on food items currently available at the pantry. This month’s recipes are a salmon & spinach casserole (recipe below) plus a pasta & squash salad with orange dressing.

2012-08-27 LUM food pantry 026 (2)

The cooking and nutrition class was piloted over a year ago to assist clients in making healthy food choices on a limited budget. Kathy focuses on simple, tasty, nutritious recipes that are fun with which to work. She says, “Quick recipes create more time for enjoying our foods and life. Using foods available (at the pantry) can provide more resources for foods we need to purchase.” The class is composed of people of all ages and over 1/3 are men hoping to learn more about cooking.

Jim, a pantry client, is a single man who used to eat out frequently.  He says he’s learned a lot from the class, “I now enjoy cooking, am eating much healthier and it’s economical too.” Joyce and her husband say they’ve benefited because the recipes encourage them to experiment with new types of food. Rex, a client and long time pantry volunteer, encourages residents of Fowler House to attend. Madonna was raised as one of ten children and knows how to stretch food. She says, “I come to the classes not only to get recipes for myself but to also share them with my friends.” Another participant expressed, “the group has become like a family”; an unforeseen impact of the program is community building.

Kathy Murray, nutrition specialist, Purdue Extension

Kathy Murray explains her dedication to the class, “In all my years of teaching, I have never worked with an audience who appreciates what you bring to them as much as this audience. The St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry staff is also a pleasure to work with.”

Participants agree they look forward to the monthly prize drawing. Each month from July 2013 – July 2014, an anonymous donor graciously provided a crock pot stuffed with food and a cookbook. The donation was is in memory of her mother who was a pantry donor and loved crock pot cooking.  What a wonderful way to honor a loved one!  We are presently looking for donors to provide future items; if interested call Lynn Johal (765-543-5238).

Everyone’s welcome to join us as we explore cooking preparation techniques for many types of foods. The class meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 10:00 a.m. at the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry.

Hunger Hike 2014 – Best Ever


Hunger Hike 2014 – Most Raised in History – $95,000


Hunger Hike 2014 - BR - 199


It’s Still Not Too Late to DONATE to Hunger Hike 2014

  • More information — go to www.hungerhike.org

This year’s Hunger Hike raised more money to date than all past Hunger Hike events. Hunger Hike 2014 this past weekend was filled with excitement, energy and good will. The weather was perfect for both the HH5K Run on Saturday and the Hunger Hike Kick-off event and 3K Walk on Sunday. Hundreds of caring individuals walked, ran, hiked, and donated funds to the Fight Against Hunger.

Thus far approximately $95,000 has been pledged and donated to Hunger Hike — which exceeds ALL past years for the amount of money raised.

The crowd gathered together in Riehle Plaza with one goal in mind – Fighting Hunger. The event this year was special from beginning to end — starting withIMG_1579 the National Anthem sung by Janelle Davis & Annalise Drake from the Harrison High School Performing Arts Program, Zumba with Emily from Parkwest Fitness — and closing with a Hot Dog & Chips picnic for all participants — and music throughout the entire event by DJ Powder from Rat Pak Mobile DJs.

The plaza was also filled with information tables focused on the issues of hunger, voter registration available courtesy of the League of Women Voters, face-painting from the Unlimited Smiles Clown Ministry, and massages from Essential Touch Massage. To welcome the hikers and to kick-off the hike, special guest speakers (see below) offered remarks which included information, words of inspiration and blessings to the hikers just before the main event.

Purdue Pete, the Purdue Crew Team, Purdue Women’s Basketball Team, and Purdue Volleyball Team led the hikers to the route along the Wabash Heritage Trail. The event was successful in bringing much needed attention to the battle against malnutrition, food insecurity and hunger.


hungerhike_HEROStayed tuned for the results for the following Hunger Hike awards: Top Individual Fundraiser, Top Church Fundraiser, 2nd Highest Church Fundraiser, & Top Team Fundraiser (non-church). Along with these winners — next week the Hunger Hike Heroes will be announced — those individuals who participated in both the HH5K Run and the Hunger Hike 3K Walk.

A Fond Farewell to Ron Smith


2014-05-28 2014-05-28 001 001


Happy Retirement to Ron Smith — LUM Program Director


Ron Smith, LUM program director, was recognized at a special reception by co-workers, LUM board directors, family and friends. Balloons, cake, speeches & even a song were offered as Ron turns the page on his seven-year involvement with LUM. At LUM, Ron directed Hunger Hike and Jubilee Christmas, and assisted with the tax preparation program & St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry.

Ron shared that his first paycheck came when he was 10 years old. He also stated “My many years of military service, employment at Purdue and various businesses, then here at LUM have been a wonderful way to spend a career.” He said that during his years at LUM he met many wonderful new friends who will continue to enrich his life for years to come. Thank you, Ron, for your hard work on behalf of the many children and families served here at LUM. Blessing to you!
