3M provides grant to Children’s Learning Center

Published: Tuesday, May 14, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

The 3M Foundation has donated $250 to Children’s Learning Center in recognition of Jeff Lizer’s commitment to the community.

Jeff Lizer has donated more than 50 hours to CLC. As a volunteer, he has constructed three benches for the day care center’s playground (donating most of the materials), assisted with securing donations for the Center’s 2012 Family Fun Night, and worked to prepare, set up and assist at the 2012 CLC Family Picnic.

“3M employees and retirees generously give their time and skills to help improve lives,” Kimberly Price, vice president, 3M Community Affairs, said in a news release. “We are pleased to recognize their commitment to their communities.”

As part of the 3M Volunteer Match, the 3M Foundation will donate $250 to eligible nonprofit organizations for which a 3M employee volunteers 20 hours or a 3M retiree volunteers 25 hours or more per calendar year. Since 2000, Volunteer Matches totaling over $4.5 million have gone to more than 2,700 schools and nonprofit organizations in 50 states and the District of Columbia.
