Dallas, TX—The week of July 11-15, Lane Gorman Trubitt, LLC’s (“LGT”) Young Professionals (“YP”) group organized and participated in Leading Edge Alliance’s Young Professionals Global Volunteer Week.
At LGT this year, Volunteer Week benefited the Buckner International organization. From bake sales to paying for the opportunity to wear jeans all week, the Young Professionals put the word “community” in community service.
Staff II accountant Jules DeWitt said, “It felt great to be able to provide a way for the firm to participate in raising money and donations for a good cause that was fun and beneficial for all!” Jules is on the LGT YP Steering Committee and one of many who helped coordinate the events during the week.
From our Tax Department, Jonathan Cook, a Staff II, was grateful for the chance to work with Buckner.
“Buckner International was a very willing and helpful partner in throwing a successful 2016 Volunteer Week.”
Jonathan was also instrumental in heading up the shoe drive. “It made me proud to see all of the participation from the firm, from the shoe donations to all the homemade baked goods!”
The volunteer week kicked off with a bake sale for Buckner. More than $250 was raised while many treats were enjoyed. On Tuesday, July 12, several YP members spent their afternoon at Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls® organizing shoes of more than 900 pairs to send around the world. A few people also assembled some immediate aid kits as well.
Back at the office, all LGT staff had the privilege of wearing jeans throughout the week as long as they made a monetary donation toward Buckner. Nearly $400 was raised from jean-clad employees.
YP also collected more than 40 pairs of children’s shoes all week that were donated to Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls®.
