DeKALB – The 3M Foundation donated $250 to Children’s Learning Center in DeKalb in recognition of Jeff Lizer’s commitment to the community. Lizer has donated more than 50 hours to CLC as a volunteer. He has constructed three benches for the day care center’s playground – donating most of the materials – helped secure donations for the center’s 2012 Family Fun Night, and worked to prepare, set up and assist at the 2012 CLC Family Picnic.

“3M employees and retirees generously give their time and skills to help improve lives,” said Kimberly Price, vice president of 3M Community Affairs. “We are pleased to recognize their commitment to their communities.”

As part of the 3M Volunteer Match, the 3M Foundation will donate $250 to eligible nonprofit organizations for which a 3M employee volunteers 20 hours or a 3M retiree volunteers 25 hours or more per calendar year.
