A huge part of what we do at Lakewood Connects is right in our name — we form connections to make Lakewood a better place. Sometimes that means knowing the places that have needs, so when an opportunity comes up, we can get the right people talking to transfer resources and improve life on both sides.
Recently, Confluent Development (full disclosure: one of our board members works for Confluent) purchased a new building and the previous owners left behind a bunch of furniture & fixtures that were in great shape! Since Confluent didn’t need these materials, they wanted to donate them to local schools and churches that would need them. Through connections, the nearly $40,000 of furniture and fixtures was distributed to three schools and one church.
