Leadr is excited to celebrate this Holiday Season by giving back to the community through their second-annual Season of Giving. Each month from October through December, the Leadr team will come together to support a local cause in the Plano area.
To kick off A Season of Giving, in the month of October, Leadr is participating in Socktober, an initiative to donate new socks to local shelters before the colder seasons arrive. Socks are often one of the most needed, but least donated items at shelters.
Metro Relief offers support to people experiencing homelessness through an all-mobile approach. Every week, their volunteers take their mobile resource buses out to build relationships by providing food, clean water, socks, and hygiene kits to friends on the streets.
CEO and Co-Founder, Matt Tresidder shared, “At Leadr, we believe that every Leadr has blue-collar DNA, and is willing to get their hands dirty to support the team's greater mission. But it's not just about excelling in the workspace; it's also about coming together to give back to the community that has been our foundation. Our Season of Giving is designed to be inclusive, allowing both our on-site and remote team members to actively participate and make a meaningful impact."
Leading up to Thanksgiving week, some of the Leadr team spent a day at Metrocrest Services & Food Pantry, stocking supplies in anticipation of the holidays.
Throughout November, Leadr will continue to give back through a food drive supporting North Texas Food Bank. Last year, Leadr donated 6,090 meals collectively. Let's see if this team can break their record.
In December, the team is focusing on giving back to each other through an internal Secret Santa program, made simple thanks to the Leadr profile card, which gives a glimpse into each team member's favorites.
