New LUM Video - Giving Help, Giving Hope
New LUM Video to Debut in June 2018
Lafayette Urban Ministry is excited to announce that a new LUM video is currently being produced and will debut in June.

This video will be used by LUM board members and staff to recruit new volunteers, engage new churches, civic & school groups, and ask individuals and businesses to invest in LUM by making a donation. This video will eventually be made available to the public through the LUM website, and anyone, including member churches, may use the video to entice their members to engage and invest in LUM as well. The video features Joe Micon, LUM executive director, and several LUM volunteers who tell heart-felt stories about how LUM "Gives Help & Gives Hope" each and every day of the year.

Stay tuned for more information about the exciting, official LUM Video debut!
