In May 2012, Spencer Fane Partner Jim Dankenbring was re-elected to serve as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Lutheran Senior Services. Lutheran Senior Services creates opportunities for older adults to achieve their utmost potential—physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, and spiritually. LSS provides a scope of services that range from senior living communities that offer a full continuum of care to affordable housing to in-home services to hospice. With almost 3,000 employees, and campuses located in metropolitan St. Louis, St. Charles, Columbia, Jefferson City, and Central Illinois, LSS is the largest non-profit organization in St. Louis, and is the 10th largest senior care community in the United States.
Jim’s involvement with LSS is just one example of volunteer work that serves as a hallmark of Spencer Fane’s philosophy of community engagement. The firm is deeply committed to the communities it serves. We support local initiatives through our charitable foundation and encourage all attorneys and staff to pursue passions which serve and enrich their community.
