"You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give"
December is the time of the year when snowy neighborhoods dazzle with lights, Christmas trees display in the front window with gifts and families decorate their lawns with lights. Between all of the celebrations, this time of the year always inspire us to give back to those in need with everything that is important in their life - warm clothes for winter, food for holiday meals, books and gifts for children.
This past holiday, several companies and organizations brought many smiles to the community through the spirit of giving:
Aptar's Food Drive for Libertyville Township Food Pantry
Associated Bank's School Uniform Drive for Carman-Buckner Elementary
Fresenius Kidney Care's Winter Clothing Drive for One Hope United
Fuji American Corporation's Holiday Donation Drive for Glenwood Elementary
United Way of Lake County's Winter Clothing Drive for Oakdale Elementary
There are several ways your company or organization can get involved to make lasting change in Lake County. Visit www.LIVEUNITEDlakecounty.org/for-companies to learn more.
