Closure leads to openings

The closing of Our Savior Lutheran Church, Raymond, Wash., in 2008 resulted in the first community food bank in nearby South Bend, as well as a senior center.

Members switched to First Lutheran Church of South Bend and brought with them the proceeds of the sale of their building.

The money was used for the Legacy Community Outreach Food Bank, now serving 237 families a month. Within weeks, a senior center opened in the closed church.
