Last year, we at LEM changed our tradition of hosting a holiday luncheon to holding a silent auction that focused on holiday gifts. Our staff bid on toys and got a head start on their holiday shopping, with all proceeds from the auction being donated to a charity. In 2021 we continued this new tradition and held our second annual Silent Auction that’s proceeds surpassed last year’s achievement.
Helping Veterans and First Responders
This year, the proceeds from our auction are being donated to the Tunnels for Towers Foundation, a charitable foundation that provides mortgage-free smart homes for catastrophically-injured veterans and first responders. The smart homes are designed and built to accommodate wheelchair access with wider doors and hallways, automated door openers, automated lighting, and much more to help these veterans and first responders reclaim day-to-day independence.
As 2021 comes to a close, we are grateful that we are able to continue to support noble causes like the Tunnels to Towers Foundation and give back to those who have sacrificed so greatly for our country.
