Lakefront Utilities employees came together to complete community jobs in Northumberland for the annual Day of Sharing.
Tasks that range from installing new flooring and removing an old shed, to weeding and gardening were completed. The jobs are done for those whose health or monetary restrictions keep them from doing the work themselves.
“It is clear that the employees at Lakefront Utilities join the Day of Sharing with the hopes of lending a helping hand where it is needed, and keeping our Northumberland communities functioning and beautiful,” said Lynda Kay, Northumberland United Way CEO. “They’ve once again achieved their goal, and improved many lives locally.”
There is a lot of time and planning that goes into the Day of Sharing by Lakefront Utilities, in partnership with United Way. Individuals and organizations in Northumberland respond to the job request, once the jobs are submitted they must then prepare the number of volunteers needed, and all the supplies that goes with each job. Every year, it takes over 25 employees to get all the jobs done.
“Lakefront’s Day of Sharing event is a great way for our employees to show their commitment to the community and to give back by performing meaningful projects for those in need,” commented Dereck Paul, President of Lakefront Group of Companies. “With assistance from Northumberland United Way and the funds raised through Lakefront’s annual Golf Tournament, the Day of Sharing has continued to grow allowing us to help people in our community for the past three years.”
