You don’t have to look far to discover what we value at Lee Company – we spell our core values out right on our website: “To honor God by serving people with respect, integrity, and compassion.”
Why community involvement?
You may have seen us out and about in our service trucks and vans, serving the homes of Middle Tennessee, North Alabama, and Bowling Green, Kentucky. We work here, we live here, and our goal is to always make a meaningful contribution to the people and communities around us. From building a home with Habitat for Humanity to participating in local farmer’s markets, we’re serving people. We’re doing our best to honor God.
And 2019 was no exception. We continued our hands-on approach to community involvement, a commitment that has been part of our story ever since Leon Lee founded the company. As you may have heard, with your help, we were able to pour love into our community partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank by collecting and donating 101,058 pounds of food; an accomplishment made possible only through collaboration.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me …” Matthew 25:35-36
We also continue to pour love into our communities by walking through life with our neighbors and customers. Literally! You can find our team members handing out water to walkers and runners at half marathons and 5Ks, or encouraging participants as they walk for a special cause like the American Heart Association. Every single time we show up at these events, we are awed by the inspiring stories we hear. We’ve heard from stroke survivors at the various Heart Walks to cancer survivors at the Race to Cure Sarcoma. Their strength gives us strength; their courage drives us forward. All in all, we are in this together.
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2
After 75 years in business, we know that pouring love in our communities is what makes life better. Making a difference in the lives of the people we serve, while having a positive impact on our community, helps us thrive. As we thank God for the success that makes our service possible, we look forward to the next 75 years of serving people with respect, integrity, and compassion.
“Let each of you look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:4
