At L&P, we believe in giving back to the communities where we live, work, and play, and we’re proud of our teams who consistently volunteer in and donate to their local communities throughout the year. We’d like to share a few stories from our teams who have given back to their local communities during this holiday season.
Internal Audit Volunteers for Salvation Army
The Internal Audit team recently participated in the Salvation Army Red Kettle at the Webb City Walmart.
The Red Kettle is a charitable initiative organized during the holiday season that supports the Salvation Army. With more than 7,000 operation centers across the United States, The Salvation Army assists people experiencing economic hardships and addiction by providing many services, such as emergency relief, shelter, and food, to those in need.
LFPF – Aurora Supports Wreaths Across America
The LFPF – Aurora Flooring Team in Aurora, Illinois, participated in Wreaths Across America Day on December 16. Wreaths Across America is a non-profit organization that honors and remembers the sacrifices of veterans by sponsoring and placing wreaths on Veterans’ graves across the country.
Aurora had 15 team members participate among over 100 volunteers despite the cold rain and wind. The organization had an overwhelming donation of wreaths and placed 600 wreaths across two cemeteries.
Corporate Credit Supports Sunshine Children’s Home
Our Corporate Credit team recently enjoyed a Christmas party complete with snacks, games, and a visit from Santa. They also adopted the residents at Sunshine Children’s Home in Carthage, MO.
The Sunshine Children’s Home is a non-profit organization that originally supported children with intellectual disabilities. Today, the agency operates two residential homes and provides leisure activities, transportation, meal preparation, and personal hygiene services for adults with intellectual disabilities.
The team filled stockings from requests gathered from each resident and delivered them for a Christmas surprise.
There’s nothing greater than the gift of giving, and we want to say thank you to all of our L&P teams for putting people first and doing great work together this holiday season!
