LPC Connect is partnering with the community to help local residents in need with a food and mitten drive. LPC Connect will be a drop-off point for nonperishable items for the local food pantries through Christmas.

The purpose of the “Mitten Tree Program” is to collect new or handmade hats, gloves, mittens and scarves for individuals within our community who are in need. This is an opportunity for individuals, families, groups and businesses to support and help children, adults and/or seniors to stay warm during the winter months. The proceeds will go to families of Black Hawk and Benton counties.

Donations can be dropped off at: LPC Connect, 306 Main Street, La Porte City.

As an added bonus, LPC Connect customers who make a donation will be entered into a drawing for an LPC Connect blanket. Some restrictions apply.  Please contact Barb or Heidi at (319) 342-3369 or visit www.facebook.com/lpctel for details.
