UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS LAKE COUNTY EXTENSION PROGRAM
NOVEMBER MEETING AWARD RECIPEINT
OUR NEXT MEETING: FEBRUARY 9, 2016
WHAT CAN HAPPEN WITH THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE GIVING?
When you donate $100 to a charity, you wonder if you're making a difference. But when 100 people donate $100 at the same time, they raise $10,000 for a worthy cause. That's impact. And it only takes an hour.
No volunteering, no telemarketing, no event planning, no silent auction donations to solicit. Simply a great way to give back right in our own community. Come join with us.
THIS IS PERFECT FOR YOU IF:
And all you need to do is give $100 and one hour of your time four times a year.
LITTLE CITY FOUNDATION AWARDED $14,500
Our largest award to date of $14,500 was awarded to Little City Foundation on September 28th. It will be used to support their art center. Wonderful art samples from some of the residents are shown below. For more information, read the press release from this event.
"UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS LAKE COUNTY EXTENSION PROGRAM" CHOSEN FOR NOVEMBER AWARD!
Our awarded charity for November is the University of Illinois Lake County Extention program, presented by member Merle Kalisky.This program serves kids in food deserts (i.e., no grocery stores or healthy food) by teaching them about growing and eating healthy foods.
The other two charities presented were Save-A-Pet (by member Avis Crasko) and PAWS (by Sue Talman).
This was our 11th meeting, and we had a great crowd of over 70 people. We also collected a good handful of winter coats for the 100 Men Who Care efforts for Stand Up For Kids.
On a side note, one of our previously awarded charities--Special Gifts Theatre--is looking for a new executive director. If you are interested or know of anyone who may be, please contact member Liz Gordon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
