Kootenai Humane Society


Lakeside founder, John Hemmingson has always had a love for animals, particularly dogs, and actively supports Kootenai Humane Society (KHS). The organization plans to build a new shelter that can help thousands of animals each year who need medical care, rescue from life-threatening conditions, and assistance in finding loving homes.

KHS provides quality humane care, rehabilitation, adoption and education for the good of the animals and their companions in our community, while practicing a No-Kill Philosophy.

Camp Journey


Camp Journey provides a community of hope for children and their families touched by cancer.  Dealing with childhood cancer can sometimes make “just being a kid” seem out of reach and out of scope for the whole family. At Camp Journey, the goal is to change that perception and that reality. In this nurturing, medically-supervised home-away-from-home, young cancer survivors can leave their worries behind for one magical week and immerse themselves in a fun-filled outdoor camp experience tailored to their needs.

Jacob Barnwell, Program Manager at ATC Manufacturing, is a co-founder of The Sweethearts’ Ball, an annual fundraiser for Camp Journey. Last year, The Sweethearts’ Ball raised $50,000 for Camp Journey.
