GLCU has taken on a new initiative to expand community giving this year with “Charity 2018”. For Charity 2018, GLCU will be selecting five local charities that will each receive $2,000 throughout the year.
- The first donation for Charity 2018 was made on February 27, 2018 to the Community Action Agency for McHenry County. Community Action Agency’s mission is to better focus available local, state, federal, and private resources to assist low-income individuals and families to acquire useful skills and knowledge, to gain access to new opportunities, and to achieve economic self-sufficiency.
- The second $2,000 recipient for Charity 2018 was made on April 24, 2018 to Teen Mother Choices International (TMCI). TMCI equips and trains churches and Christian organizations to develop a Teen Mother Choices Program within their communities.
Throughout 2018, GLCU will continue to support organizations that are making a positive impact.
