Lincoln Financial Group employees donated 100 bookbags filled with school supplies to FWCS students. Last week, 50 employees strapped two backpacks each over their shoulders and trekked across the street to the Grile Administrative Center to deliver the bookbags. Their donation brought the total to 300 that our case managers were able to give to students in need across the district. Thank you, Lincoln employees! During the month of July, Lincoln employees donated school supplies for their monthly Centennial collection. Each month throughout Lincoln's Centennial year, employees have held monthly collections filling various needs throughout our community.
