Message from President Charlotte Warren

Dear LLCC Faculty and Staff,

Monday, Oct. 26, kicks off our two-week, 2020 United Way campaign to help local people live their best possible lives. Thanks to your support, United Way strengthens our entire community, especially in light of the hardships many are facing due to the pandemic. Your support for United Way allows local people to receive emergency assistance, job training, senior care, early childhood education and much more. Your gift stays right here in our local community.

To donate through a one-time gift or payroll deduction, please click here. Why give? Four of your LLCC colleagues who serve on the United Way committee created this brief video, in which they describe why they give every year to United Way.

As a thank-you for giving, you’ll receive a free jeans day sticker (with no expiration date), and your name will be put in a drawing for multiple gift cards donated by the United Way committee.

Thank you for being an everyday hero and lifting up our community.
