Caring enough to give is a simple way to explain the amazing employees, vendors and customers who make up the community of Lezzer Lumber – Lancaster. Our charity of choice for our fund raising efforts was Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors. Their mission is “to help restore wounded warriors to good physical, mental and emotional health”, in addition, 95% of all gifts go directly to provide assistance to PA veterans and their families. This was all the motivation a team of planners needed to organize a successful 2nd Annual Chicken BBQ – October 6, 2016! A generous, delicious meal was assembled in take-out bags and fresh, hot chicken was added to each meal. We ended the day with 800 dinners prepared and a profit of $6,500.
Special thanks to employees, vendors and customers for the great team work shown; selling tickets, buying tickets, helping the day of the event. We were honored to do our small part in giving to this great organization.
