Empowering Families Luncheon
Due to the pandemic, the Latino Community Association (LCA) will present its Empowering Families Luncheon via Zoom this year on December 3. The fundraising event will run from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. and tickets are on sale now at latinocommunityassociation.org. Guests have the option of ordering a tasty take-out lunch from local Latin American restaurants.
Keynote speaker Yara Santos will talk about her immigrant journey and how she realized her dream to own a business, Yara’s Cake Shop in Madras. Guests will have a chance to talk with others in small breakout groups and learn more about LCA’s transformational work.
LCA highlights the contributions of Central Oregon immigrant families who often work in essential jobs and contribute significantly to the local economy and culture. The association strives to empower immigrant families and to make Central Oregon a place where everyone feels welcome. It offers English and citizenship classes, health insurance enrollment, dental clinics, immigration legal consults, help finding a job and education programs for youth.
This past year, LCA provided services to 2,837 people. In April, the organization began providing financial assistance to people who lose jobs and income because of the pandemic or need support to quarantine at home if exposed to the coronavirus. Most of LCA’s support comes from local individual and business donations, as well as private foundations. The Empowering Families Luncheon is an important annual event that generates revenue to sustain these life-changing services.
