The Lukas Community has received a grant from the Oleonda Jameson Trust to help assemble a low-cost system to insulate and cool our produce storage room, repair our garden shed, and acquire a portable handicapped ramp to make our old buildings more accessible.
We are very grateful for their assistance. Our fees support daily life at Lukas but don’t stretch enough to cover repairs or renovations to our aging buildings.
Big thanks to Cogswell Benevolent Trust for their generous donation toward much-needed bathroom renovations! The bath is the only one on the first floor of Crossroads House, next to the Weavery where we hold many programs (in addition to weaving), near the kitchen where residents help with cooking, and serves visitors during open studio events. It is unusable by anyone who has mobility issues or needs assistance. The new bathroom will be reshaped to be fully ADA compliant, and will help our residents age in place and take full advantage of our materials, tools, and programs. Great start!
