Law firm chooses community service
Lane Alton & Horst has a program wherein staff members that have been employed for ten or more years are recognized for their service to the firm. The program is called "LEAD" and stands for: Loyalty: Embracing who we are and the changes that insure our future together. Excellence: The result of high intentions, intelligent direction, and skillful execution. Attitude: A little thing. A powerful force. A big difference. Dedication: Consistent, sincere efforts to deliver service with integrity compassion and understanding
Each year the firm organizes a breakfast for "LEAD" staff members and invites the partners to attend and speak. This year, in lieu of the expense of a breakfast, the eleven members of the "LEAD" team have decided to work on a service project, taking the money usually spent on the recognition breakfast and put it to better use. The firm collected monetary donations as well as school supplies to be donated to the United Methodist Free Store to provide school supplies for students in three local elementary schools that are financially distressed. The firm collected over ten boxes of school supplies and delivered them to the United Methodist Free Store for distribution to students in need for the upcoming school year.
The firm also made a monetary donation of $200 to the United Methodist Free Store. The members of Lane Alton & Horst enjoy and believe in contributing to those in need, and have also regularly contributed to the American Red Cross, CHOICES, United Way, Children’s Hunger Alliance, Habitat for Humanity, Operation Feed, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, Race for the Cure, Juvenile Diabetes, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Bethlehem on Broad Street, and Faith Mission.
