As part of Nelnet’s core value to give back to the communities in which we live and work, Nelnet’s Lincoln office participated in City Impact’s Gifts of Love campaign for the third consecutive year. The program provides gifts to over 3,000 need-qualified members of Lincoln’s community. All items donated to the program are marked down 70% below retail value price to allow families to shop for their loved ones with dignity. The proceeds raised by these gifts are later utilized by City Impact for community programs.
This year’s fundraiser had an outstanding turnout! Our Lincoln associates donated:
- 1,007 toys (635-toy increase from 2015)
- $4,973.18 in monetary donations ($1,179.17 increase from 2015)
- $445 in gift cards ($410 increase from 2015)
Thank you to everyone who donated to brighten the holiday season for those less fortunate in our community!
