November 27, 2018 (Brighton, MI) – Lowry Solutions announced today their charitable initiatives in participation with Giving Tuesday. The company has wrapped up a fundraising campaign with the United Way of Livingston County and is kicking off a food drive with Gleaners Food Bank and a toy drive for Toys for Tots.
This fall, the Lowry employees participated in the Livingston County United Way annual fundraising campaign. They were given the option to make a one-time gift or donation via annual payroll deduction. The company hosted a contest where departments split into teams in effort to raise more money. Overall, they raised $8233.00, which includes a matching donation from the company.
In 2017, Lowry Solutions raised more than 46,000 meals for Gleaners Community Food Bank (Gleaners) in their annual food drive resulting in most meals raised yet. Today, they kick off their 2018 donation drive which will run until December 17th.
In conjunction with the company’s Jeans for Charities monthly fundraiser, Lowry will utilize the month of December to benefit Toys for Tots as the third charitable initiative. Along with being a Toys for Tots drop off site, Lowry employees who donate an un-wrapped toy or make a monetary donation, will be able to wear jeans in the office on Fridays during December. The company will match the donation made by the employees.
“We recognize that giving back to the community is an essential part of our business,” stated Mike Lowry, CEO of Lowry Solutions. We fully embrace these worthwhile organizations and their missions to help those less fortunate in our area. I can’t think of a better day than Giving Tuesday to show our support.”
Lowry Solutions is committed to giving back to the community. They have created programs that support non-profit organizations in and around Livingston County. The Gleaners partnership and the United Way partnership are just examples of several fundraisers and outreach alliances that Lowry participates with. Included are an eight-year Intern Partnership with Pinckney New Tech High School and their signature “Jeans for Charity” Fridays with a 100% organizational match.
