Project Overview

LGL, Inc is working to maintain transportation for rural individuals to the Lamar sheltered workshop.  Operating and maintaining the van costs $32,000 per year.  Barely 30% of the cost is covered by a small grant and rider fares.  These individuals from Greenfield, Lockwood, Golden City and Lamar  have limited income and greatly need this transportation. Working at the sheltered workshop provides a social network, a sense of pride and self worth as well as using their time to be productive individuals. LGL is a non-profit organization and 100% of the donations will go to the maintainence of vehicles.  

For every $3,000 in donations, the Lockwood Community Foundation and other individual donors will be matching $1,000 toward this project, up to $4,000

About LGL Inc.

LGL Inc is a non-profit organization giving a lift to disabled workers.  They provide and maintain transportation to the Lamar sheltered workshop for individuals in Barton and Dade county. These adults enjoy working which also provides a sense of pride and self-worth.  No rural public transportation is available so LGL was established in 2012 to supply this need.  Currently, they provide transportation to 10 individuals with limited income and travel between 80 and 100 miles per day.  70% of the funds needed to provide this yearly transportation is achieved with fundraisers and donations from indivudals, businesses, churches and local organizations.  The funds LGL receives each year is enough to maintain the vans but not enough to build capital for the inevitable need to replace at least one of its high mileage vehicles.  Please help continue this vital transportation need so these rural individuals can continue their employment.
