How do our gifts impact the local community? They support agencies like Compass for Kids, providing after-school and summer academic enrichment services to at-risk children. St. John’s Breadline, Mini O’Beirne Crisis Nursery, Helping Hands of Springfield and Senior Services of Central Illinois are a few of the many other agencies our gifts impact as they work to provide for basic needs, education, financial stability and health of local individuals.
This year’s LLCC employee giving program through United Way will be Oct. 29-Nov. 9. Each donor will receive a sticker for a “jeans day” of their choice, and is placed in a drawing for multiple gift cards to be given away on Professional Development Day Tuesday, Nov. 6. Anyone who fills out their pledge form or makes a gift by that afternoon will be eligible for the gift card drawing.
Thank you for considering a gift to help those in need in our communities.

The United Way Committee will have a table at today’s luncheon to accept your pledge forms. Blank pledge forms will also be available along with a display of all of the gift cards to be given away at today’s ice cream social beginning at 4 p.m. Everyone who fills out their pledge form by that time will have their name put in a drawing for multiple gift cards. Hope to see you there, and thank you for considering a gift to help charities and local agencies that help those in need.
Everyone who fills out a pledge form for the LLCC Employee Giving Program through United Way on or before tomorrow at 4 p.m. (Professional Development Day) has a chance to win one of 20+ $10 gift cards to Starbucks, iTunes and more! Drawings will be held at the ice cream social tomorrow. The United Way Committee will have a table at Cass Gym where you can view the gift cards and turn in your pledge forms. Thank you for your gift that helps those in need right here in our own community.
All donations, great and small, can have a substantial impact on our local community. Payroll deduction (LLCC has 24 pay periods per year) is a convenient way to contribute. A donation of $5 per pay can prevent multiple families in need from being without electricity or hot water. A donation of $10 per pay can feed a healthy, family-style dinner to 60 food-insecure children. A donation of $20 per pay can buy clothes and personal items for students who are victims of disaster. For many of us, there are not enough hours in the day to tend to professional and personal obligations. Contributing to United Way is an opportunity to help local agencies who are able to devote their time to assisting those who are in need in our community. LLCC has provided us with an easy, accessible way to give back to our community.
The campaign is underway and ends on Friday, Nov. 10. If you haven’t given before, please consider making a donation today either through payroll deduction or a one-time gift. If you have given in the past, thank you! We hope you will give again. Any contribution will make a great difference. Please consider making one today. Thank you!
