Lutheran Disaster Response 



As a non-profit organzation, many of LSMNJ's programs, like Lutherans Feeding Friends, New Visions Homeless Day Shelter, and Lutheran Disaster Response, rely on financial donations in order to provide for those in need of food and shelter.
As a way to give back, LSMNJ employees located in the Burlington administrative office make weekly contributions to Lutherans Feeding Friends as part of JEAN DAY FRIDAY. Since 2009, this Friday tradition has raised over $20,000 and collected more than 7,500 non-perishable food items.
Would your organization/employees enjoy JEAN DAY FRIDAY?  Contact us and we'll give you the tools you need to make it a great success and a charitable tradition.
