A Walk Through Poverty
Poverty is a complex social issue that requires strategic intervention, investment and community dedication. To increase poverty awareness in our region, Lakeside Capital management team provided financial support for the production and distribution of A Walk Through Poverty, a 30-minute film exploring the complexity of poverty here in the Inland Northwest. The film pairs an art installation with documentary screening, designed to connect and include viewers in the conversation. Visit the documentary’s website to request a screening.
Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners (SNAP)
SNAP is a private, non-profit Community Action agency in Spokane, helping low-income and homeless families, children and seniors. With a dedicated board of directors, staff and volunteers, SNAP invests in long-term solutions to eliminate poverty. For 50 years SNAP has served the Spokane region as a leading voice on poverty, helping families and individuals become more self-sufficient. As a strong community supporter, Lakeside actively donates time and financial resources to this organization.
The Lakeside Capital management team believes that all children deserve easy access to the healthy food they need to thrive in their communities. In the Inland Northwest, Lakeside lends financial support to Second Harvest’s Feeding Kids First campaign, which aims to fund the creation of infrastructure and secure operating capital to ensure that no child in our community goes hungry. The project includes building a new storage facilities as well as space for volunteers to produce and pack weekend food kits so that local students don’t go hungry when they’re not at school. Feeding Kids First is an ongoing effort that we’re proud to support in the years to come.
