The LPC Desert West team unites the skills and experiences of its participants with local community needs through service numerous times a year in areas of need such as homelessness and children facing hardship.
Santa’s Sak was established 10 years ago by our Vice President, John Orsak. His mission was (and still is) simple – “to deliver toys to kids that are in group homes, are recent refugees or in any other time of need during the holidays”. He “coordinates, shops, wraps and delivers the toys directly to the homes. 100% of the donations go directly to the kids.”
The first year it was just 10 kids; by the end of last year Santa’s Sak had served HUNDREDS of kids! Even with these past 2 years of COVID, John and LPC Desert West will make it happen again by bringing 450+ children gifts they never expected to receive.
Habitat for Humanity
LPC Desert West’s employees help build houses for families in need with Habitat for Humanity once a year.
Every year LPC Desert West holds a drive for easter bunny baskets to give to children in hospitals and shelters. In 2022, we donated 180 plus baskets stuffed with several treats and sweets.
