On an early summer morning, we showed up for another day of work. But today we traded in our usual work tools for rakes, shovels, and gardening gloves. The day was spent planting flowers, trimming trees and power washing the home of an elderly resident in our community. At a second site, we partnered with Service Masters to clean the interior of another elderly resident's home. Our work sometimes leads us to unexpected places, but there shouldn't be a limit on the ways that we can help someone in need.
Day of Caring
This is the first year that Lake Trust has participated in the Day of Caring, though individual members of our team have participated in the past. This day is coordinated through the Livingston County United Way and is the largest one-day community service event in Livingston County.
"Caring is part of our values. It's the core of our culture at Lake Trust," says Christine, Vice President of Community Development at Lake Trust. "So when we have the opportunity to do this in the community, it's a natural fit."
