Donor Testimonials

Orchid Pot created by the Agency with the help of Zane J Cornett

“We each support Connected Lane County because it offers an enticing smorgasbord of options to help youth experience possibilities they may not have imagined, eliciting creativity and hard work while offering practical options and skills for them to take forward into their lives.”

Elaine Twigg Cornett and Zane J Cornett

Supporting Spark at Booth-Kelly to come to fruition was a feel-good moment for us. We’ve seen firsthand the positive results Connected Lane County creates and we hope contributing to the program helps make a positive impact on the community. We were excited to contribute as a family to create opportunities for youth who might not otherwise have access to hands-on training and opportunity.
