AFSCME, IGA, Lincoln Junior Woman's Club senior care fundraiser success          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

As members of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31, Local 1277, we want to thank the community for their support during our fall fundraiser for bath aide services for low-income senior citizens.

A check will be presented to the Logan County Health Department for the "Personal Care Service Program." Funding generated will allow certified nurse's aides to provide bath services to those who need, but cannot afford, the necessity. Community donations continue to be accepted throughout the year for this program.

Thanks to Charlie, Bill and staff at the Lincoln IGA for their helpfulness at the sandwich sale and bake sale. Thanks to the Lincoln Junior Woman's Club for partnering with the union by providing baked goods as well as additional funding. Thanks to Thrivent Financial for Lutherans for providing generous incentive funding and to Thrivent volunteers for their donations of time and baked goods. Thanks to local churches for their monetary gifts.

Lastly, thanks to the union and nonunion members of the Logan County Health Department who volunteered their time and energy on a Saturday to make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.

Susie Billington and Mary Anderson
AFSCME Council 31, Local 1277
