Give a cherished family member or friend a Valentine’s Day card this year and perhaps help save a life. That’s the message that the LaGrange County Community Foundation (LCCF) hopes to convey to community members to encourage participation in its ninth annual Valentine card offer. All proceeds from card sales will be donated to help pay for mammograms through the Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography Unit. The specialized breast cancer screening bus visits various LaGrange County locations throughout the year. Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer in fatalities among women. Annual mammograms are highly recommended as early detection of breast cancer is critical.
For each donation of at least $10.00, one LCCF “Circle of Love” Valentine’s Day card will be mailed to any individual that you select. You may order as many cards as you want. However, be sure to specify the name, address and relationship per card so Community Foundation staff members may insure prompt delivery and select a card that is best suited for your recipients. There is a form that can be filled out to make sure all information is accurate. Request this form by email, phone or stopping by the Community Foundation.
Please send your check for $10.00 per card made out to LaGrange County Community Foundation. Write “Circle of Love” on the memo line. The mailing address is 109 E. Central Ave., Ste. 3, LaGrange, IN 46761. For more information call 463-4363.
The deadline is Tuesday, February 11, 2014, for delivery by Valentine’s Day
