Scottish Rite Masons Provide Critical Support For LifeScape Rapid City

LifeScape and many Black Hills area families are grateful to the Scottish Rite Masons for their critical financial support of speech and language services at our clinic in Rapid City. Thanks to their support, which began in 1994, countless children have received speech therapy to help them improve their speech and communication skills, either verbally or through augmentative communication. Children who might have remained educationally behind for a lifetime can now talk, read, and lead productive lives. Area Scottish Rite Masons recently visited LifeScape to present a $1300 check to provide more speech-language pathology for area kids. In October, they made a $30,000 gift, bringing the Scottish Rite Foundation’s total giving to LifeScape over the past 27 years to more than $463,800.
