Let's not forget him...3rd Annual Luke Glupker Memorial Fundraiser

Luke Raymond Glupker passed away on March 9, 2016 at the age of 20.   He touched many people during his short life, and those who loved and knew him want to ensure that Luke's legacy lives on.  


In his honor and memory, Luke's mother is using the time between her birthday on October 10 and his birthday on November 22 to collect new warm socks for the Union Gospel Mission Men's Campus in St. Paul. Many of us take the basic comfort of warm and clean socks for granted. The men at the shelter do not. Luke had poor circulation and treasured getting warm socks from his mother, even in his most troubled times. 


Please join us in honoring this young man's kindness and compassion by donating to an organization that supported Luke when he needed help, and by keeping his spirit alive with one small act of kindness.

All donations will be distributed to the UGM men's campus by the end of November so we can keep their feet warm during our cold Minnesota winters.

Luke always gave more to his friends and family than he received, let's keep his tradition alive.  

Thank you all



a ripple
welled from deep
thrust forward
laps the shore
shapes the world
touches my soul
and ebbs
to the sea
of eternity
