The Lorain County Chamber of Commerce hosts monthly networking nights throughout the county. In May, United Way of Greater Lorain County welcomed over 70 people representing local companies and organizations to their downtown Lorain offices.
Over 20 loyal donors and workplace champions attended game night for a lighthearted evening of board games, appetizers, and drinks. Guests enjoyed popular games such as Apples to Apples, and 5 Second Rule, as well as some more obscure ones like Pass the Pigs.
A small group of leadership donors prepared over 1,500 Christmas books for distribution by UCAN partner, the Elyria Salvation Army on Thursday, December 13. The group was able to ready an entire gaylord of holiday books donated by the Greater Cleveland Book Bank, meaning each book was sanitized, checked for quality, sorted by category, and boxed.
Completed boxes of books were delivered to the Elyria Salvation Army the following morning to be included in their holiday-time assistance programs for local families in need.
