The Illinois Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association recently donated $5,000 to LIFT. This donation was given working with Commerical Electric to go towards the electrical program for training aids.

Serbousek stated, "What you guys are doing is extraordinary - providing opportunities for individuals to become trained job-ready essentially and giving them a leg up. It's a great opportunity for a lot of =local residents to obtain opportunities to provide a good living for themselves."
LIFT would like to extend a thank you for this generous donation!
