      Vote on line to help clean our Free Clinic and a possible $20,000 donation.

      If you have a Facebook page, would you please like "The Libman Company" page?  In March they took in over 20,000 suggestions for a charity to support.  The Free Clinics of Iowa made the top five list.  We need you to vote for the Free Clinics of Iowa.  You can vote once per day now through the end of April.  In the event that we win, Libman will come to Des Moines and clean several Free clinics in the Des Moines area (including Christ the King Free Clinic -- the daycare area); the winner also gets a check for $20,000.  Please vote each day, and share with your family, friends and co-workers.
