Holiday Giving 2014
By Kabita Bagchi, Marketing Volunteer
Thank You For Giving Lake County’s Most Vulnerable Children A Reason To Give Thanks!
This holiday season, we collaborated with the #GivingTuesday social movement of giving back to the community, partnered with Jimano’s Pizzeria to benefit critical early literacy programs and called in for our signature Year End Giving.
We would love to tell you that this holiday season, when you gave to the United Way of Lake County, you helped us prepare over 1,300 children for Kindergarten by supplying their parents with Early Learning Club materials.
Your donation helped sponsor the cost of training for over 100 volunteers who work with 1st to 3rd grade students to improve their reading skills.
Thanks to you, we were able to provide 5 families with the technology and computer training they need to help their child succeed in high school. You also helped us supply over 25,000 Find Help free resource guide that connect under served Lake County citizens with local health and human service providers and programs.
Again, thank you for being so generous and thoughtful. We would not have been able to succeed without your partnership and the support of the entire community. You joined us in growing a stronger Lake County community and together we did LIVE UNITED this holiday giving season!
