Community Care….Get Involved
Here at LDM we share the same values and passion of lending a helping hand to those effected by the woes of life….the struggle. Each year we adopt, personalize and act as stewards to those in need. We collect donated items, purchase products, package and deliver to the homeless living on the streets to delivering load of gifts to families with children. This is only the tip of what we can accomplish.
LDM is sponsoring “GoFund Me” fundraiser to adopt up to 5 randomly selected individuals needful of a “Helping Hand” due to loss of jobs/wages and hard times to include those directly impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Funds are distributed to only those that we know and are equally divided and delivered in the form of Gift Cards (MC/VISA/AMEX) to aid in purchasing food, paying utility bills and securing/ maintaining residency. To protect the privacy of each, we will not release the identities of recipients, however, will share background history, updates, status of fundraiser and proof of purchase of gift cards. We are accepting nominations through October 31st with delivery of gift cards before December 25th. Contact email@example.com for additional details and to nominate a friend, a family, a relative or a colleague. To contribute: http://www.gofundme.com/ldmgroup-community-care
We will continue to deliver “Care Bags” to the homeless in DMV and Houston areas. Owed to last year’s success, we have bags on hand ready for pickup by volunteers to deliver. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
2006 – Ongoing
Pay it forward… each October, LDM beginning planning how we will help others… we reach out to our staff, colleagues, client-partners and friends to recruit volunteers to support the cause. We randomly adopt families facing temporary crisis, single parents who lost their job, homeless living on the streets, elderly to receive care packages and programs like Susan G. Komen Race for the Care, Toyz for Tots, So Others Might Eat, Adopt a Soldier, Safe House for battered Women and others.
- A family lost everything in a fire… we collectively donated clothes to the Mom and her 3 children, shoes, school supplies, furniture, Food and other items to aid in rebuilding their lives
- Helped numerous families (with children) stricken with the loss of income due to job layoffs, divorces and simply down on their luck. Provided gift certificates, groceries cards, gas cards, clothing items, Christmas toys and gifts. We even delivered to their homes taking no credit– acting only as messengers.
- Adopted uncountable homeless people living on the streets in DMV and Houston areas. We prepared large zip lock bags “care packages” filled with hats, gloves, socks, heat warmers, nonperishable foods, tooth brush, tooth paste, personal products and more. Our volunteers handed out baggies to people on streets, side of the road, in parking lots, alleys wherever needed.
- Sponsored “GoFund Me” fundraiser in support of a family whose head-of-household had been hospitalized for an extended amount of time due to a freak life threatening.
