LLCC’s L.E.A.G.U.E. Committee invites you to get a team together to participate in Penny Wars! Penny Wars is a fun competition to see who can collect the most pennies and raise funds for LLCC Foundation’s Pay It Forward Fund which provides assistance to students with emergency needs. Here is what you need to do:

• To participate in Penny Wars, contact Barb Eades in the LLCC Foundation at 786-2255 or Barbara.Eades@llcc.edu.
• Pick up an empty Penny Wars container in the Foundation, Menard Hall, room 1214.
• Decorate your container anyway you want – or use this year’s LEAGUE TV Game Show theme as inspiration.
• Start collecting pennies in your department or area and place them in your container.
• Sabotage your opponents by placing silver coins or paper money in their containers.
• Bring your decorated containers to the L.E.A.G.U.E. luncheon on Tuesday, March 24 by 11:30 a.m. in the Student Union where people will vote for their favorite and more money can be placed in the jars.

Foundation Secures Donations In Support of Our Students

Thanks to your generous donations, Peggy was the recipient of the Lincoln Land Foundation First Generation Student Scholarship, which has helped her pay tuition.
