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 62,000 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 Bank of Arkansas has awarded LifeSource International of Fayetteville, AR, $2,000 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.

Kid’s Life is unique to Northwest Arkansas, in that it is free and offered year round. It provides an important lifeline for parents who otherwise could not afford such quality care.

LifeSource is a charity founded in 2001 as a small food pantry. Today LifeSource serves more than 63,000 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 Bank of Arkansas contributes not only grants, but also in-kind donations such as computers and books to schools and office furniture to halfway houses.
