Red Nose Day, run by Comic Relief, is a campaign dedicated to raising money by having fun and making people laugh. Money raised is spent to help lift children and young people out of poverty in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world.
LassiterWare bought 100 Red Noses, enough for each employee, but had an idea for LassiterWare Cares in helping contribute even more to this great cause. LassiterWare Cares offered a Red Nose to each employee for $5 dollars. All proceeds went in support of Red Nose Day. Each office participated and wore their noses proudly.
Deliver the Difference is a nonprofit organization that is located throughout Central Florida and is dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty through life skills and nutrition. They have organized the distribution of over 400,000 meals in 2015 and we are proud supporters of this great cause. Each of our offices kicked off their own food drive and collected items to donate. Upon delivering these items LassiterWare Cares brought 45 individuals to participate in a meal packaging project.
At LassiterWare’s 2015 Annual Day of Discovery, LassiterWare Cares teamed up again with Deliver the Difference to fund a project out at Mission Inn, located in Howey-in-the-Hills. Every single LassiterWare employee was in attendance and participated in packing over 25,000 meals for distribution throughout the areas we serve in Florida and South Carolina flood victims.
The LassiterWare Cares Day of Service is a company wide event. Each office has their choice of who they would like to help and whether they would like to donate their time as a volunteer, make a monetary donation (provided by LWC & LassiterWare) or both!
2016 – For the Maitland Team, the City of Maitland Police Department and Fire Station 47 was an immediate winner for showing appreciation for all they do for the community. The morning began with the packing of 45 lunches that included, in each box, a Publix sub, chips, sweets (made by our very own team), napkins, bottled water, and a thank you card signed by the Maitland gang. The lunches were then delivered by the Maitland crew so they could personally thank our public safety officers. Go Team Maitland!
Tour de Cure is a series of cycling fundraiser events held in forty states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association. This event is a bike ride and not a race. All proceeds go toward research and advocacy for those affected by diabetes. The choice of bike routes are 10, 25, 50, 63 or 102 miles. For the 2016 Tour de Cure Orlando event, LassiterWare partnered with Cuhaci & Peterson to raise just over $21,000 and was recognized as the 4th largest corporate fundraiser team. $700 of funds raised was donated by LassiterWare Cares foundation.
