We’ve all been there …
The car hits a pothole on your way to work and the tire blows out, taking the rim with it.
The landlord hikes the rent, right when your significant other receives a layoff notice.
That headache you’ve been having? The doctor wants to send you to a specialist for extensive tests.
When unexpected expenses come up, where do you turn?
Turn to your co-workers at LOGAN. The new LOGAN Cares – Co-workers Assist each other in Rebuildng Employee Stability – provides a way for all of us to help each other with unexpected expenses caused by an event beyond our control. Employees going through a crisis or hardship may apply for up to $500 in assistance. If granted, the money will be paid to the vendor to whom the money is owed.
Donate via payroll deduction or a one-time gift
The money covering these unexpected expenses comes from you, the co-workers, and is matched by LOGAN. You can donate via paycheck deduction or a one-time contribution.
LOGAN will match dollar-for-dollar each employee contribution!
Designate $1 or more per paycheck to LOGAN Cares, and twice that amount goes into the fund. Give a one-time gift of $10 or more, and twice that amount goes into the fund. You get the idea!
When you support LOGAN Cares, you provide the safety net that keeps your co-workers on the job and their life on track.
