Besides our official arts partners, there are a number of organizations we wish to acknowledge for the work they do that either complements or supports our own.
Unity Foundation of LaPorte County. The LOK Wishing Tree Foundation is a donor advised fund under UFLC. They have also made a grant to our organization in 2015 which allowed us to purchase and distribute additional CO alarms to LaPorte County residents.
Hey U.G.L.Y., stands for Unique Gifted Lovable You, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth to be their true selves and part of the solution to bullying, youth suicide and substance abuse. Utilizing peer-to-peer learning Hey U.G.L.Y. helps students, schools and youth-serving organizations co-create an environment of respect, acceptance and inclusion. Since 2002 Hey U.G.L.Y. has helped millions of students through their heyugly.org website, Choose To Change radio show, contests, curriculum and interactive assembly presentations. Hey U.G.L.Y.’s world class speakers give students the tools they need to squish out that negative voice in their head that tells them they are not good enough. Whether at an assembly or school concert venue, the message of our speakers align with Hey U.G.L.Y.’s self-esteem and empathy-building bullying prevention curriculum that is used by schools and youth-serving organizations across the country and in Canada.
The Jeffrey Lee Williams Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization with a singular mission: to help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. It’s that simple. No one should get sick from carbon monoxide poisoning. No one should die from carbon monoxide poisoning. As long as there are carbon monoxide alarms and places to put them, tragedies like the one experienced by the Williams family can be avoided.
Rebuilding Together Duneland is an affiliate of Rebuilding Together (headquartered in Washington,D.C.), the nation’s largest nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to rehabilitating communities and houses of financially struggling homeowners, focusing strongly on the elderly, physically challenged and those with children. LOK Wishing Tree Foundation is happy to provide CO alarms for some of the homes this organization works to improve.
