Round Lake, IL, July 24, 2012: Consumers Credit Union (CCU; Waukegan, IL) recently donated $3,000.00 in support of People Lending Assistance Network (PLAN) of Grayslake. PLAN, a not-for-profit organization, provides food, clothing, appliances, education and job assistance to individuals and families. PLAN primary commitment is serving the central Lake County area, relying almost exclusively on donations to fund operations and stock their shelves.

Founded in June of 2007 under the leadership of PLAN Director Michael Pimpo, the organization is run entirely by local resident volunteers who choose to help others in need. Volunteers for the organization range from retired military personnel, adult volunteers and local students, many from area churches. PLAN provides extremely efficient services to those in need five days a week. For example, each dollar donated to PLAN purchases 9 pounds of food through the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
