We are so thankful for the generous support of LSI donor Karol Sturm, of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls.
Karol gave a memorial gift to honor her parents, Wally and Shirley. Karol’s paternal grandmother, Anna Lenius Burman, was raised at the Lutheran Children’s Home – now LSI’s Bremwood Residential Treatment Center – along with her six siblings.
The Lutheran Children’s Home was a safe haven for Karol’s grandmother during her formative years, and Karol felt her father would greatly approve of a gift given to LSI’s Bremwood Spiritual Life Program, which provides voluntary faith-based activities like art and music for children and youth at the residential treatment center.
Thank you so much, Karol, for your thoughtful support of LSI and the critical programming Bremwood provides for so many of Iowa’s most vulnerable children and teens!
