Continuing its long-standing tradition of supporting worthwhile causes, VT LeeBoy provided a tour of their Lincolnton facility to John Hall, Hesed House of Hope Director and Robert Dalton, Lincoln County Coalition Against Domestic Violence (LCCADV) Executive Director and  Kathy Vinzant, United Way Executive Director, in announcing results of a recent effort to help the local organizations. VT LeeBoy has been involved in community service projects for years and has recently focused their efforts on these three community non-profits.

VT LeeBoy recently hosted an Easter auction with baskets donated and designed by each department. The items included baby baskets, dog baskets, car baskets, spa baskets and more. Employees bid on the baskets and the funds collected were used to support Hesed House and LCCADV.

 “We raised $857 in our Easter Basket Auction,” said VT LeeBoy accounting manager Mark Brissenden. “We chose to support Hesed House and the LCCADV because our employees have a desire to help the kids that are in these shelters to have an Easter basket and enjoy the holiday.”

Back in December, VT LeeBoy provided gifts for the Angel Tree at the LCCADV shelter, donated food for their Christmas meals as well as cleaning supplies for the shelter.

“We are so thankful for VT LeeBoy, and all the ways they provide support,” said Dalton. “During one of the most challenging times in their lives, our clients are able to know that their community truly cares for them.”

Lincoln Herald readers will also recall that VT LeeBoy has been very much involved with helping the Lincolnton Relay for Life for several years.  In 2018 VT LeeBoy built and sold a Pothole Patch Truck with a pink cab, pink hopper and the decals of vendors that generously donated parts and monetary donations to the fundraising initiative as their 2018 project for Relay. Their team is already working on raising money for this year's Relay for Life (scheduled for May 19th at Lincolnton High School stadium).

"We are so blessed to have such wonderful corporate citizens in our county," said Kathy Vinzant, United Way of Lincoln County Executive Director.
