On July 14, LeChase’s Southeast team took part in the Durham Rescue Mission’s Back-to-School Party and Backpack Giveaway. The event – which also offers food, games and clothing donations – attracts thousands of community members each year.
Currently constructing the Rescue Mission’s new dormitory building, LeChase has been a long-time partner of the Mission. As in the past, this year Durham office employees supported the Back-to-School event by collecting donated backpacks and school supplies. In addition, more than a dozen employees volunteered to sort clothes and help in other areas during the event.
Thanks to everyone for getting involved, and special thanks to these subcontractors for donating school supplies as part of the effort: Allison Brothers, O.C Mitchell, Watco, Frazee Carpet, CMC Mechanical, Davis Landscape, Sullivan Eastern, Boettcher Masonry, and TCC.
