Hephzibah is Oak Park’s oldest charity - founded in 1897 and today, it’s still providing safety and care to children and families through group homes, foster care, family services, day care and many other innovative programs.
Here’s where YOU come in!
EMC Insurance, one of Hephzibah’s corporate partners, is celebrating 100 years of giving by having a contest. They are giving away four awards of $25,000 to four non-profit agencies that receive the most votes by October 8, 2011.
What does $25,000 mean to Hephzibah?
It would pay for more than half of the expenses associated with the Reading Academy, a three week program giving kids a much-needed jump start before the school year commences! This program recently lost funding, but with your help, Hephzibah can have it back on track.
Vote once a day to bring $25,000 to Hephzibah!
Use this link - http://tinyurl.com/EMC-Hephzibah - and vote every day either before you leave for work, when you return home, during a TV commercial, after a workout, when your surfing the net, or right after you tuck your kids in at night!
Hephzibah thanks you!
We would be so grateful if you would vote each and every day until October 8th. The competition is stiff with over 90 well-deserving agencies vying for these awards. Also, please consider sending this on to your co-workers, family, and friends.
