‘Tis the Season to Give

Lohman Company believes in engaging with our local community to bring a positive, measurable change to our neighborhoods, where we work and live.   We had a lot of fun this year supporting the following charities:

Mesa United Way

We held several events that our employees participated in to help raise funds for Mesa United Way.

1. Our employees raided their piggy banks, dug deep into their couch cushions, searched their cars, check the bottom of their purse, found money on the ground …. all in an effort for their team to win at Penny Wars. It was a fun event that brought in $230 with an additional donation from the Firm.

2. Our employees continued their generosity and participated in Mesa United Way’s annual giving campaign. These monetary donations help support Mesa United Way programs to help strengthen our community.

3. JaKelle’s Christmas Box through Helen’s Hope Chest:

This program provides gifts at no cost to foster families and their kids. Lohman Company created a “Toy Drive” and collected over $600 in toys to support JaKelle’s Christmas Box.

Sunshine Acres

Each year we select a charity to donate to in lieu of mailing out holiday cards.  This year our charity of choice was Sunshine Acres located in Mesa, AZ.  Their mission is to provide a loving, wholesome home for children who are separated from their parents.
