Dallas - In August, the employees of Lane Gorman Trubitt, LLC (LGT) generated money, supplies, and food for the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) while showing their support by wearing jeans for the last week of the month.
This is not the first time that the company came together to help out their community. In the previous eight months, the employees have raised more than $3,000 for various organizations.
In February LGT kicked off the Jeans Week campaign providing support for the American Heart Association where employees pay to wear jeans for the week around the office. Some of the other organizations include Operation Kindness, Keep America Beautiful, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
NTFB is not only the recipient of the August Jeans Week, the organization will also benefit from the month long canned food drive that encourages the departments to compete against each other to see who can benefit the community most. In Dallas County alone, there are 451,000 people living with food insecurity.
The North Texas Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and will provide access to 190,000 meals every day to hungry children, seniors, and families across 13 counties.
Last year, LGT collected enough food to provide 3,500 meals, while this year aims to increase that number.
Through some of the other opportunities over the summer, the employees raised money for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to help stop driving under the influence, as well as the Samaritan Inn in helping homeless individuals.
Our firm is committed to fostering a safe, smart, and sustainable community within the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Our professionals make it a point to give back to the area in which they live and work.
