As part of Nelnet’s Core Value to give back to communities in which we live and work, Nelnet’s Lincoln office participated in City Impact‘s Gifts of Love program for the fourth consecutive year. For over 20 years, the program has provided Gifts of Love toys to more than 3,000 need-qualified Lincoln families. All items donated to the program are marked down 70% below retail value to allow families to shop for their loved ones with dignity. The proceeds raised by these gifts are later utilized by City Impact for community programs.
Once again, the fundraiser had a wonderful turnout. Lincoln associates raised:
- 621 toys
- $260 in gift cards
- $8,853 in monetary donations (includes corporate match of single $100+ donations)
Thank you to everyone who donated and those who are volunteering at the Gifts of Love shopping event. Your contributions and generosity will surely brighten the holiday season for many families in our community!
