Together We Can Make a Difference for Our Neighbors in Need!

Double Your Donation with a $1 for $1 Challenge Match for Programs and Services that Impact Poverty 

The annual SML Walk to End Poverty is Saturday, September 16, at Smith Mountain Lake State Park. The 5k and 10k walk or run event is organized by Lake Christian Ministries (LCM). Proceeds from team and individual fundraising efforts support LCM’s services aimed at assisting local neighbors struggling with poverty. Local demand for food assistance and crisis financial assistance has grown by 40% this year. Prolonged inflation costs have drastically impacted low-income families in our community. To help, the SML Walk to End Poverty sponsors are offering a "Matching Challenge". This challenge provides a $1 for $1 match for the first $30,000 donated by the community. The goal is to generate a total of $60,000 for services to assist vulnerable families struggling with the economic crisis.

Help us maximize your support when your donation can be doubled with a matching challenge. Together, we can make a greater impact during a difficult year for a growing number of local families in need.
