PRINCETON — LCN has made a lot of changes in the past years but one thing they will not change is their support for the community.

In the months of November and December, LCN challenged its employees to raise money for three different charities and everyone had some fun doing it.

“We have a great group of employees at LCN that have huge hearts and understand the importance of giving back to the community,” said Jamie Smith, a customer service representative.

The Employee Action Committee sold the letter “A” Allegion (the new company split off name) for $1 and asked people to write their name on their “A” which hung in the hallway to decorate with the new company colors of orange and grey. A total of $300 was raised with a company match of $300 to donate to both the Bureau Valley and Princeton Buddy Bags programs. Employees also had turkey bowling, which raised $90 for the local food pantry.

The biggest fundraiser for LCN was for United Way. Each department was tasked with creating and donating a themed basket to be on display for the employees. Thirteen baskets were created and raffled off. They also had a cookie walk and a blanket raffle that helped with the grand total of $1,553.
