Why I Give

After being involved with the Rotary Club of
Lancaster for 16 years including her service as immediate past president, Althea knows the value of contributing to LCPC. The club and the clinic have a long-standing history. Our founder H. K. Cooper served as a member, and Rotary provided him with the seed funding to start the clinic in 1938. Althea Ramsay Carrigan, who has a cousin with a cleft palate, and was herself born with jaw issues, saw the needs at LCPC and advocated for the Rotary to allot more funds to donate to the organization. “It made all the difference in the world,” she said.

Althea Ramsay Carrigan

Sam Lombardo and his wife, Dena, both have a heart for LCPC because the organization gives so much back to children and the community. Sam has been hosting a golf tournament for the past 15 years to benefit LCPC. He believes that those who have been blessed financially should “give back” to the community and to others. Giving to LCPC holds him to his mission and allows him to support an organization that he is passionate about and loves.

Sam Lombardo

I’ve been blessed with four healthy children, and I’ve never had to go through a life-changing situation like the parents at our clinic. I give and volunteer because LCPC is making a difference in the lives of many, many children in South Central Pennsylvania. The professionals know the impact they can have, and that’s why they’re open with their extensive research: so everyone, anywhere can grow and achieve their best potential.

Thank You, Donors!

The Lancaster Cleft Palate Clinic family would like to say thank you to our donors. Without your generosity and support, our clinic would not have the same effect on your community. You’ve made our mission possible; you’ve brightened the smiles of our clients! Thank you for standing behind us, both physically and financially. January 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021
