As part of its community service project, the BPCC Student Government Association will assist the Community Foundation of North Louisiana and the United Way of Northwest Louisiana this month by contacting local non-profits and updating their profiles on the Louisiana Initiative for Nonprofit & Community Collaboration (LINCC) database.New BPCC Logo

“LINCC is excited to partner with the BPCC SGA, a wonderful group of students committed to service in their community,” said Dr. Susan R. Campbell, director of Community Resource Management, LLC, who maintains the LINCC platform. “The SGA will assist LINCC with updating the nonprofit information on our website by contacting the nonprofits and helping them update their information.”

Louisiana Initiative for Nonprofit & Community Collaboration (LINCC) is an accurate, searchable database of all nonprofit organizations, programs, and volunteer opportunities in Northwest Louisiana. LINCC provides information on nonprofit organizations to assist grant makers, service providers and those wishing to volunteer, contribute, and collaborate with organizations and others dedicated to improving the quality of life in North Louisiana. LINCC is an online community resource directory that links information, inspires people, and engages our community for a better Northwest Louisiana.

Eleanor Chandler, president of BPCC SGA, said this volunteer project is something that fits very well with the SGA’s mission of providing resources to the community.

“The SGA is happy to assist organizations in our community who are providing assistance and resources to others,’ said Chandler. “Our members can volunteer their time to contact non-profit groups to update their information in the LINCC database which, therefore, provides accurate information for the citizens in our community.”
