Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation (LGEF) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2009 by a group of neighbors in Fair Haven, NJ, with a mission to raise awareness of those around us – our fellow neighbors – who are in need of assistance.
LGEF organizes events (such as neighborhood barbecues, multi-family yard sales, concerts, and this 5K run/walk event) that raise funds for food gift cards, overdue utility bills, excessive medical bills, and expensive life-dependent medications.
Goals of Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation include:
- Find at least one individual or family each month who is in need of assistance. Provide help that goes beyond what a normal food pantry or basic needs committee might do.
- Network with other charitable groups to identify and help fulfill the monetary or service needs of our community.
- Spread a spirit of giving, encouraging friends and neighbors to "pay it forward".
Thank you for supporting Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation and the Life Guard 5K.
