The LifeSource mission is to strengthen our community by providing customized assistance to families in need. Our approach is balanced and holistic — we offer food, clothing, adult education programs, after school and summer camp programs for children, counseling, Senior Saturday lunches, and community outreach meals. We maximize the impact of every donation, helping to strengthen families and build our community. We serve more than 55,000 individuals, children, and families in need every year. We want to say THANK YOU to everyone who supports us. We couldn’t help so many of our neighbors without your generosity.
The Jarden Community Fund has awarded LifeSource International of Fayetteville, AR, $5,000 to support its Kid’s Life Program, which serves kindergarten through high school students throughout the year.
The free program offers after school care and a summer day camp, both of which are free to parents. The focus of both programs is academic enrichment, with one-on-one tutoring in English, math, and computer literacy.
“This program is unique to Northwest Arkansas, in that it is free and offered year round. We provide a vital lifeline for parents who otherwise could not afford such quality care. We very much appreciate the confidence that the Jarden Community Fund has shown in the work we do,” said Jimmie Conduff, executive director of LifeSource.
LifeSource is a charity founded in 2001 as a small food pantry. Today LifeSource serves more than 60,000 people in Northwest Arkansas for free through seven programs: a food and clothing pantry, Kid’s Life, adult education classes, counseling, Senior Saturday lunches, a community outreach meal once a month and medical referrals.
The Jarden Community Fund targets community initiatives that improve the lives of people in the communities where their employees live and work, which includes Bentonville, Arkansas. Among other products, Jarden produces brands such as Mr. Coffee, Sunbeam, Oster and Villa Ware.
