Due to Covid-19 and the need for social distancing we will be postponing our event.
We look forward to the communities support and will let you know once we have decided on a new date.
How We Give
LEDC has come a long way since opening their doors on September 25, 1972, serving 25 students. We currently serve over 517 clients through our Cabot and Lonoke locations. Our current service areas include Lonoke, Faulkner, Jefferson, Prairie, Pulaski, and White Counties. As part of our celebration, we are asking for 100 generous donors to commit to giving $100 to assist us in continuing to provide the best and most current services to each and every client regardless of their need. Services provided are funded primarily through Medicaid assistance. Private donations from the community are used to provide services not funded by Medicaid or for the children and adults that do not have Medicaid or other sources funding. That's why our fundraisers are always so crucial to our organization. We are asking that you partner with us to meet this anniversary goal of 100 giving 100.
As a small token of our appreciation, we would like to present each donor this Make A Difference lapel pin.
Thank you to the following donors that have given! You are making a Difference!
