Frontier works with InReach
Kim Lukacs, our Accountant, has long been involved with InReach whether it’s by serving as co-chair of the Dream Maker Luncheon or volunteering as a Steering Committee member of the Crown Town Throwdown cornhole tournament, their hugely successful annual fundraiser that raised over $70,000.
If you’re not familiar with them, “InReach is a local nonprofit founded in 1974 by parents of children with special needs who wanted a better life for their children than institutionalization. InReach now serves over 1100 people annually, providing services including housing, assistance with employment, emergency financial support, and connecting these folks with additional community resources. We work hard every day to help these individuals live their lives as independently as they are able. Support from individuals, companies and foundations enable us to provide superior programs for these special people who are often overlooked.”
This year we at Frontier were fortunate enough to find an opportunity to collaborate with InReach by having a special helper, Jillian, stuff, stamp, and label our holiday cards. Jillian works at the InReach office as a part-time receptionist, so this task was right up her alley. Jillian is a busy young woman, volunteering at her synagogue, rehearsing for the new InReach puppet show, “Barnyard News”, horseback riding, waterskiing, and attending dances and outings with friends.
