Team Longenecker Celebrates National Non-Profit Day
August 17th is nationally-recognized as Non-Profit Day. This national day was founded by Sherita J. Herling to commemorate August 17, 1894 when the Tariff Act became law and gave exemptions to charitable institutions and nonprofit organizations. The day is now meant to recognize the positive impact that nonprofit organizations have on our local communities and around the world.
Why we “Give Back”
Since bringing Team Longenecker to Downtown Lebanon, we have made our commitment to the community a priority. Our goal is to help revitalize and strengthen the Lebanon Community and beyond! We have both become involved with many of the local non-profit organizations. Along the way, we have found that Lebanon has a great foundation of volunteers and like-minded people that we have had the opportunity to work beside and get to know. Overall, our belief is a strong community creates a great place to live, which helps the clients that we serve in real estate.
How we “Give Back”
We enjoy being a part of the many movements happening in our community and encourage everyone to “Give Back” along beside us. Each of our commitments connect with a passion that we have or an organization that we feel is doing a great job of filling a need in our community. We are grateful to be a part of the following organizations in our community:
- Community of Lebanon Association
- Economic Vitality with Downtown Lebanon Main Street Program
- Design and Clean & Green with Downtown Lebanon Main Street Program
- Lebanon Family Health Services
- Power Packs Project – Lebanon Region
- Lebanon County Commission for Women
- Lebanon Valley Chamber of Commerce
- Downtown Lebanon First Friday Planning with the Main Street Program and Lebanon Valley Council on the Arts
In summary, this list is only a small handful of the great organizations and non-profits in our community! We encourage you to find your passion and see what organization out there has the same goals.
