At LGC, we’re dedicated to serving our clients, workers, and community because without their help, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Throughout the year, we encourage our team to volunteer for causes that are important to them and LGC will find organizations to partner with. (Read more about volunteer efforts here.)
We’re thankful to have the opportunity to finish out 2019 by partnering with Gleaners, an organization fighting against hunger in Indiana by distributing food to food pantries, soup kitchens, and shelters. Since 1980 Gleaners has distributed over 360 million pounds of food and is part of the Feeding America network of food banks; Through Feeding America, more than 46 million people are provided with food every year.
Our partnership with Gleaners came in the form of a monetary donation to one of their youth programs. With help from donors around the state, they are able to:
- Bring more than 8 million pounds of fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables to hungry Hoosiers throughout the area.
- Distribute 7,500+ BackSacks to hungry children weekly this school year.
- Feed more than 23,000 families through our CARE Mobile program this summer.
- Feed nearly 68,000 families who visit our Community Cupboard.
We chose to partner with Gleaners not only because of their work feeding the hungry, but because they’re located in our home state of Indiana – we relish the opportunity to give back to our community.
