Today is the last day to qualify for United Way gift baskets!

Here’s a look at four of the five gift baskets available in the employee Gift basket1 Gift basket2 Gift Basket3 Gift Basket4campaign through United Way! Everyone who donates has a chance to win either a basket from their employee group representative, or the second chance basket. Each basket is worth at least $50. Each donor also gets a swag bag of three gifts.

The biggest reason to give is not these prizes, but rather knowing you are helping those in need in our community. Please fill out the pledge form you received via campus mail and return to your group representative listed below. Today is the last day of the campaign, and we hope to hear from you!

Thank you,

Campaign through United Way continues through Friday

Make your gift today and you could win a gift basket! See the United Way gift baskets on display tomorrow at Professional Development Day. All donors to the campaign will have their names put in a drawing for a basket donated by their employee group representative (below). There’s also a second chance basket! All baskets contain three items (remember the campaign theme is “Gimme Three Steps”) and are worth at least $50.

What does this community need? Watch the 2015 United Way video and see how your gift helps those in need in our community.

What’s in the United Way swag bags?

Each donor to the LLCC campaign through United Way receives a swag bag of three gifts, to go with the campaign theme of “Gimme Three Steps.”

Today we reveal one item in those swag bags: a sticker for a free jeans day! You can wear the sticker and take the jeans day whenever you like (with supervisor OK).

Make your gift or pledge to the campaign today and find out what other items are in the swag bags, which were generously provided by LLCC Student United Way! You’ll also receive a ticket or tickets for the grand prize drawing of gift baskets worth at least $50 each. Most importantly, your gift will help those in need or in distress in our communities.

Your gift to United Way can help students like Sundae Johnson

LLCC student Sundae Johnson recently moved into a new home thanks to Habitat for Humanity, a United Way agency. Your undesignated gift to the LLCC campaign through United Way helps a number of social service agencies, like Habitat, with the greatest need. Or, you can designate your gift to any qualified agency that you support.

The theme this year is “Gimme Three Steps.” Return your pledge form to your employee group representative (below) today. You’ll receive a swag bag with three fun items and be placed in a drawing for gift baskets worth at least $50, containing three items each.

The “Community” in our name

“Community” is in the middle of our name: Lincoln Land Community College. Because we care about and serve our community, we hope you will consider a gift to the community giving campaign through United Way. The campaign continues through tomorrow, Nov. 8.  A small deduction from your paycheck can make a big difference in someone’s life.

Our community campaign is unique. If you have a special cause you support, or if you live outside Sangamon County and want to give to a local organization, you can designate your gift to one or more 501c3 charities. Or, you can give an undesignated donation to serve the greatest needs of the Sangamon County community.

Please contact your employee representative for more information or send your form to them today! Tiffany Andrews (6.2752) HR (M-1223), Nicole Ralph (6.2342) HR (M-1225), Soodi Nassirpour (6.2415) ITS (M-1205), Tara Walk (6.4935) (S-1109).
