Through the generosity of the George and Cindy Lamb family, I80 AMBUCS was again the worthy recipient of another grant to make it possible for the organization to carry out it’s mission!  We are excited to post pictures of the lucky recipient, Ryan, with his really COOL tryke!  Thank you to I-80 AMBUCS for all of the amazing work you do for kids in our community!







Nothing says love, kindness, generosity and giving more than gifts from the heart.  The first grant made by the SRCCF from the Lamb Family Fund for Ability and Adaptation was a $5000 grant to I-80 AMBUCS, a non-profit organization in Seneca, Illinois, who created an Amtryke for Lily Thompson. The purpose of the Fund is to make charitable grants to local organizations who serve individuals living with physical disabilities. Pictured from left are Cindy and George Lamb; Lily; Lily’s dad, Mark Thompson; Darrell Thompson, grandfather; Kris Applebee, I80 AMBUCS Vice-President; Lauren Lamb, Advisor to the Fund; and Rob Swon, I80 AMBUCS Founder and President. Congratulations to I80 AMBUCS, and thank you for providing such a wonderful service to our community! For more info about I80 AMBUCS, visit


The Lamb Family has partnered with The Starved Rock Country Community Foundation to bring not one, but two new funds to Starved Rock Country. This fund, The Lamb Family Fund for Ability and Adaption, was started with a generous gift from George and Cindy Lamb in anticipation of making charitable gifts to organizations and agencies that serve individuals living with physical disabilities. This fund is in line with an additional fund the Lamb family created, The Lamb Family Fund for Crotty Park Playground.  Both Funds demonstrate the family’s history of caring philanthropy throughout our community.
