Lilly to Sponsor Martin Luther King Day 'I AM CHANGE' Campaign as Part of Inaugural Gift to President-Elect Obama
Date:1/16/2009

INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Employees of locally based Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) are participating in a national civic engagement effort that kicks off Monday, January 19, in coordination with the Martin Luther King holiday.

Lilly is a sponsor of "I AM CHANGE," a campaign that seeks to answer the call to service issued by President-Elect Barack Obama to meet the critical needs of the environment, education and the economy during this challenging time in our nation's history. Other corporate sponsors are The Coca-Cola Company, Delta Air Lines, Federal Express, Kellogg Foundation, KPMG and Nike.

U.S. employees from more than 100 departments at Lilly have been engaged in service projects to collect supplies for local community organizations where the stock of essential supplies has been depleted due to the challenging economy.

These supplies include staple foods such as rice, pasta and peanut butter, toiletry and household items, warm clothing and outerwear, as well as gently used eyeglasses for re-use. Social service agencies in Central Indiana that will benefit from these donations include Second Helpings, Goodwill, the Julian Center, the Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation, Gleaners Food Bank and many others. The collective impact of Lilly's donations will be packaged by the Points of Light Institute and delivered as an inaugural "gift' to President-elect Obama.

More information about becoming involved in this national grassroots initiative is available at www.handsonnetwork.org.
