Jamey Helgeson: Join LIFE in creating opportunities for all abilities

31 May 2024

As the warmth of summer approaches, we at LIFE Mower County are gearing up for a season filled with educational, social, and recreational programs tailored for individuals of all ages and abilities. Our mission is simple yet profound: to foster an inclusive community where everyone, regardless of their challenges, can thrive and find joy.

Summer is a time of vibrant growth and exploration, but for many individuals with diverse abilities and their families, finding accessible and enriching activities can be a daunting task. That’s where LIFE Mower County steps in. Our summer programs offer a lifeline of support and opportunity, providing a safe and nurturing environment where participants can learn, grow, and create lasting memories.

But our commitment doesn’t end when the summer sunsets. We strive to keep the spirit of summer alive year-round, offering a continuum of services that empower individuals with diverse abilities to lead fulfilling lives. From educational workshops to social gatherings and recreational outings, our programs cater to the unique needs and interests of our community members.

However, sustaining these vital programs requires ongoing support from generous individuals like you. Your financial donation can make a world of difference, allowing us to expand our reach, enhance our offerings, and ensure that every individual who walks through our doors receives the support they need to thrive.

Whether it’s a one-time contribution or a recurring donation, your generosity will directly impact the lives of those we serve, helping us create a more inclusive and compassionate world for all. Together, we can make this summer—and every season—a time of growth, joy, and endless possibility.

You can make a donation of any amount online by completing the form at www.lifemowercounty.org/summerappeal, or you can mail or drop off your donation to LIFE Mower County, 401 2nd Ave NE, Austin, MN 55912, with “Summer Appeal” written on the check memo line.

Thank you for considering supporting LIFE Mower County.  Your donation truly makes a difference.
