Security Bank donates to LACF

Security Bank recently presented a check to the Lennox Area Community Foundation (LACF) in the amount of $8,060. 

Brian Zirpel, Senior Vice President of Security Bank and LACF treasurer is pictured above presenting the check to LACF board members Laurie Shaffer, Alan Rops, Carol Wulf, and LACF president Jonathan Hagena. 

The LACF was founded in 2004 as a way to enhance and improve the quality of life for those right here in our communities. Every day, these grants are touching the lives of people right here at home, strengthening our communities and building a brighter tomorrow for future generations.

Thanks to the support of generous donors like Security Bank, the LACF has granted more than $137,000 to the communities of Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing since being founded in 2004. 

For those inspired to contribute to the Lennox Area Community Foundation, donations can be made online at or by mailing a check to LACF, PO Box 87, Lennox, SD 57039. 

A board of local directors oversees the fund and works hand-in-hand with community members and civic leaders to understand needs and explore opportunities throughout the area. 

LACF Board members include Jonathan Hagena, President; Amy Fischer, Vice President; Pam Elhoff, Secretary; Brian Zirpel, Treasurer; Lorin Brass, Julia Eng, Alan Rops, Laurie Shaffer, John Steever, and Carol Wulf. 

Each year, the board awards grants in support of local nonprofits and community-based projects and ideas. Organizations who serve our youth and senior citizens, as well as those dedicated to important causes such as education, the arts, cultural enrichment, health and safety, and more are all made stronger thanks to support from the Lennox Area Community Fund.

LACF 2023 grant recipients included: Lennox Area Historical Society, Lincoln County Fairgrounds Foundation, Lincoln County SD 4-H, Love Inc. of Greater Lennox and Turner County, Worthing Community Fire Department, Chancellor Community Fire Department, Lennox Community Library, Junior Achievement of South Dakota, Petal Pals, Lennox Area Ambulance Squad Inc., and the Lennox Volunteer Fire Department. The application period for grants from the Lennox Area Community Fund opens each summer.
