Triple Money Monday set for Monday, Dec. 15
Multiplying the generous nature of the community, the Livingston County United Way is excited to announce that contributions made to the organization on Monday, Dec. 15 will be tripled (up to matching funds available). Several matching donors have stepped up to make Triple Money Monday 201 a reality.
Donations collected on Triple Money Monday are designated specifically to provide local families and individuals with the basics:
• Families are able to stay in their homes, with rent and utility assistance.
• Children get the nutrition they need to grow up healthy, through community gardens, food programs and a strong food pantry network.
• Individuals can connect to resources with the help of 2-1-1, Community Resource Guides, Community Connect and more.
• Supports our ALICE families (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed).
• Area seniors receive support services to retain their independence.
“Helping families to meet their most critical needs is what the Livingston County United Way is all about,” said Brian Jonckheere and David Morse, 2014 Campaign co-chairpersons. “We don’t just fund programs; we work to find real solutions through key programs and initiatives.”
“Not only is the Livingston County United Way a big part of many success stories, such as the Hunger Council’s connecting hungry people with food resources, the United Way is continually collaborating with local agencies, churches, and business partners to make a big impact on the most critical needs of the community,” Jonckheere and Morse said. “Triple Money Monday provides the best value for your donated dollars. This is our home, our community. Let’s keep it local! We invite the community to be part of the solution!”
Community partners that provided match funds to make Triple Money Monday possible include the Howell Rotary’s Tour de Livingston, Citizens Insurance Co., two anonymous donors, Blue Cross Blue Shield of MI, and General Motors Proving Ground.
Memorial gifts or in –honor-of gifts can be made to recognize special people this Christmas and certificates and receipts will be provided. Charitable year-end giving has distinct tax advantages and can be a potential way to reduce tax liabilities as all contributions are 100 percent tax deductible – and the dollars stay local – what’s raised in Livingston, stays in Livingston!
