Dallas - Lane Gorman Trubitt, PLLC (LGT) took part in the Young Professionals Special Interest Group of LEA Global (LEA YPs) annual Volunteer Week during the week of June 16, 2014.

In anticipation of Volunteer Week, young professionals from LEA member firms worldwide were encouraged to choose a charity they wished to support. LGT's YP group sorted shoes into various groupings at Buckner for one of their many programs, Shoes for Orphan Souls®. These shoes were donated by churches, organizations and individuals, then distributed globally to children and families in need.  

"This is a global effort," says David McCain, with SS&G, chair of the LEA YP Steering Group. "To our knowledge, no other CPA network or alliance has hosted a worldwide volunteer effort. LEA member firms believe in the spirit of excellence, and this seemed like a great way to demonstrate that belief in a tangible way."

LEA started the YP Group in 2008 to provide a forum to address the needs of young professionals in today's dynamic environment. Every year, the group enhances and acknowledges the role young professionals play in their firms. The group promotes accomplishments, assists in career development and shares the ideas and successes of the young professionals in LEA firms.
