LBMC celebrated its second annual “Lending Hands” week, where LBMC employees across the state have the opportunity to “lend a hand” to local not-for-profits via hands-on volunteering during work hours.

This year more than 270 employees participated, donating approximately 870 hours in a span of one week, equating to more than $250,000 donation of time. Organizations like St. Jude, Chattanooga Food Bank, Chattanooga Signal Centers, Chattanooga Welcome Home, Helen Ross McNabb Center and the Red Cross were among the 25 Not-For-Profits helped by LBMC employees Dec.

LBMC CEO Jeff Drummonds said, “ We are so proud to be a part of the wonderful Tennessee community, and Lending Hands is our opportunity to give back.  We have long known how service-minded our employees are and Lending Hands allows us to bring our volunteer efforts together and have an even greater impact in our community.”

Dennis Blanton, LBMC managing shareholder, Chattanooga office, said, “While we volunteer throughout the year in various ways like United Way campaigns or individual volunteer efforts, as well as sitting on boards, etc., Lending Hands gives us an opportunity to do this together over the holidays. The fact that LBMC encourages this during work hours is a great example of our culture and the value we give on being an active part of this community. We will definitely be doing this again in 2019.”
