42 and You

 In Advocating, Coaching, Connecting, Events

This year’s El Paso Chamber Leadership El Paso Class (LEP 42) has launched their project, “42 and YOU”, an initiative aimed at supporting the El Paso community through the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Each year, as part of their curriculum, the Chamber’s Leadership class develops a project to support the community and create positive change. This year, LEP 42 is partnering with Operation H.O.P.E to raise funds for groceries for those affected by the pandemic. In addition, LEP 42 will be organizing blood drives to help meet the increased need.

LEP 42 has raised funds from over 70 businesses and individual donors for their efforts, but every donation counts! Your donation includes benefits such as recognitions through social media and other publications. For the full benefits, and to participate in this year’s efforts, click here

Additionally, LEP 42 is asking our business community to consider donating blood, as our community continues to face shortages due to the pandemic. The next blood drive will be held Thursday, July 30 from 1-5 pm at the Vitalant Center located at 424 S. Mesa Hills Dr. Vitalant asks that donors sign up ahead of time, and donations now include a COVID-19 antibody test. For more information and to sign up, click here
