LACO is a non-profit organization, founded in 1985 beginning with the efforts of several area churches. It is sponsored by churches of various denominations located in the Lisbon, Durham and Bowdoin communities.
LACO is administered by an all-volunteer Board of Directors that provides leadership and decision making for the organization. Members of the Board include clergy, parishioners, and community members.
Currently churches actively involved in the outreach of LACO include the West Bowdoin Baptist Church, First Congregational Church of Durham, Durham Monthly Meeting of Friends, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Shiloh Chapel, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, Lisbon United Methodist Church, and the Lisbon Free Baptist Church.
Support and Fund Raising
LACO is supported by the Towns of Bowdoin, Durham, and Lisbon through donations from many individuals, organizations, and churches.
LACO also receives support through matching grants and the assistance of Good Shepherd Food Bank.
LACO operates a food pantry located at the Marion T. Morse Community Center. The Food Pantry serves as a supplement for those needing assistance in the battle to prevent hunger.
Each visit provides a family with a week’s supply of food. During 2011, LACO services provided more than 2000 families a weeks worth of food.
Also located at the Marion T. Morse
Community Center is a clothing bank. LACO welcomes anyone in need to visit and take as much or as little as they need. We do ask that the items be for your own personal use or the use of your immediate family.
