The Middletown Area Center is working with Middletown’s nonprofit Feed the Hungry Project on plans for the Louella Thompson Children’s Enrichment Center (LTCEC). The center, still in the preliminary stages, is part of Feed the Hungry Project’s vision for expanding community services beyond making clothing and hot meals available to people in need.
UWGC Middletown’s involvement in funding the project was approved by a vote of the area center’s Action Council.
“The LTCEC will be a safe place for the community’s youth to learn and engage,” Feed the Hungry Project’s proposal states. “A series of free classes and activities will be available to anyone who wishes to participate.” Activities will range from illustration lessons to sculpting to music.
The enrichment center is named in honor of Louella Thompson, a Middletown resident who established Feed the Hungry Project in her home in 1987. The organization’s Dream Center was built on a lot adjacent to her house in 1997. Thompson died in 2005.
More details about the center will be shared as they become available. Questions can be directed to Deborah Patterson, executive director of Feed the Hungry Project, email@example.com.
