About Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation
Life Guard Ecumenical Foundation (LGEF) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2009 by a group of neighbors in Fair Haven, NJ. Their mission is to raise awareness of those around them – their fellow neighbors – that are in need of assistance. Just as a lifeguard sits on his stand and actively searches for those in need, such is the purpose of LGEF. Since its inception, they have organized events (such as neighborhood barbecues and multi-family yard sales) that have raised funds for food gift cards, overdue utility bills, excessive medical bills, and expensive life-dependent medications. Each month, they are committed to finding a local family in need and hosting a fundraising event to benefit that family. They also do more than donate monetarily. They volunteer their time, skills and resources at such local organizations. Their ultimate hope is to spread a spirit of giving, encouraging friends and neighbors to add a philanthropic element to their lives and community. www.lifeguardecumenical.org
