Please Consider Giving to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society this Holiday Season

June Compton, UFCW member
The holiday season is a time to be thankful, and a time to be generous as well. UFCW members, staff, and supporters are a part of their communities—and have always been extremely generous in working hard not only on the job, but off the job to make our communities stronger, healthier, and happier.

Since 1983, the UFCW has designated The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) as the UFCW's major charity organization. And UFCW members have worked tirelessly, volunteering for and donating to this important cause.

Donate to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) and the UFCW will double the value of your gift now until December 31st!

UFCW Local 175&633 member June Compton got involved with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through a payroll deduction campaign because, “being a shop steward, not only did I feel it was part of my responsibility, but also because I felt it could set a good example to other members who may have considered taking part but haven't done so yet.

“Fundraising for the LLS is a great way to meet new people, talk to your fellow members, and give back to those affected by these cancers in the hope that soon we will have a cure,” says Compton. “I would never hesitate to encourage other members to jump right in and get involved any way they can, whether you personally know someone affected or not. Not only are you giving money or raising money, you're also raising awareness about an issue that some people may know nothing about.”

If you’ve been thinking of giving to the LLS, now is the time! The UFCW will match up to $1 million in donations made by December 31st to LLS. You can double the value of your gift!

Your donation of $25 will be worth $50; your gift of $50 becomes $100. Anything you give today will be worth twice as much during this matching challenge. But the challenge ends on December 31st so don’t miss the chance to fund more life-saving research.

Click here to donate to the LLS today and double your gift’s value!

Thank you for all you do. And the very best to you and your family, this holiday season.
