Thank You for Supporting LSI Staff During COVID-19!

We are so grateful to our community partners who have generously provided our frontline staff with face masks during this difficult time.

As of our latest count, communities across Iowa have donated more than 2,496 masks or face shields to LSI.

LSI would also like to thank the many people, businesses, and organizations that have made a monetary donation to respond to the severe and unanticipated costs that we have incurred due to COVID-19. In particular, we want to thank the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine, Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, Community State Bank (Spencer), Lincoln Savings Bank Foundation, Wells Fargo Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque, Scott County Regional Authority, and Quad Cities Community Foundation for their tremendous financial support.

This list of supporters continues to grow every day. Thanks to everyone who has responded to our request for masks! As we continue to prioritize the safety of our staff and the people we serve, we know this will be a long-term need for LSI. If you are able to help and have questions about design or how we might receive masks from you, please contact John Claes, Interim Vice President of Philanthropy and Church Relations, at
