There’s nothing more heartwarming than making a difference over the holidays. Your opportunities are endless—volunteer at a soup kitchen, drop toys in a Toys for Tots bin, help put together care packages for soldiers overseas.
This holiday season, instead of splurging on the latest technology gadgets or the hottest fashion trends for your loved ones, consider giving back to your community by giving the gift of education. Lancaster Dollars for Higher Learning is a nonprofit organization that provides interest-free student loans to residents across Lancaster County every year.
Why donate to Lancaster Dollars for Higher Learning?
- Help Those in Need
Many young people don’t recognize their true potential and are discouraged from pursuing their dreams due to financial struggles. Donating to Lancaster Dollars for Higher Learning is just one way you can positively influence the youth of Lancaster County.
- Donations are Recycled
When recipients repay their LIFT loans, that money is put towards more interest-free loans for new recipients. So, unlike other donations, whether you give once or monthly, your gift is constantly making a difference.
- Outsmart Holiday Shipping Deadlines
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, and your window for receiving any orders before Christmas is closing. Online donating is the savvy way to shop. No wait, no charge for shipping—standard or expedited.
- Avoid Holiday Crowds
Mid-December blows blizzards of people through shopping malls and department stores. Save your sanity. Avoid those crazed shoppers and hit the World Wide Web to make a donation that will make a difference.
- Leave a Legacy
If you’re looking for a gift to give the education enthusiast or teacher on your list this year, consider donating what you’ve budgeted for them this year to show them how much you care for their cause.
You can also commemorate a loved one this year by gifting a Legacy Loan in their name.
By increasing education opportunities for young adults, you are helping to build a brighter future not just for them, but for your community as well. They may care for you, your children, or even your grandchildren for years to come. If you are at a loss for holiday gift ideas this year, give the gift of education.
