This year Liberty Mutual employees across the country celebrated its 100th anniversary by serving the communities they call home. 6 awesome volunteers: Lisa Crawford, Jennifer Sariego, Linda Shupard, Susan Porter, Sarah Lauro, and Mark Brown took the opportunity to serve their community by spending the day helping others in need at Impact Thrift Stores in Norristown PA. Projects coordinated by the Norristown store manager, Larry Leary, included working alongside staff members in the Bric-A-Brac and Clothing departments to sort, clean, price and stock shelves with items to be sold in the store.
“It was definitely an eye opening experience to see what actually goes on behind the scenes, and to see all the customers just waiting for the “new” merchandise to hit the sales floor.” commented Lisa Crawford, Volunteer Coordinator and Customer Claims Rep Supervisor for Liberty Mutual.
As soon as the corporate offices of Liberty Mutual presented options for volunteer opportunities to its staff, Lisa Crawford immediately nominated Impact Thrift to make her volunteer contribution with. Over the years, Lisa has been a loyal supporter of Impact Thrift as a shopper and donor. It is because of Lisa’s love for Impact Thrift’s mission to support local charities and positively impact the community, that she was very instrumental in making this wonderful partnership possible.
After spending the morning with the enthusiastic and joyful volunteers it became very apparent that Liberty Mutual did not partner with Impact Thrift just as a means of jumping on the bandwagon of the latest fad in corporate social responsibility. Nor did they volunteer for some sort of recognition or to selfishly expand their corporate visibility. It was glaringly obvious that Lisa, Jennifer, Linda, Susan, Sarah and Mark all served with Impact Thrift simply because strengthening the lives of families and children in crisis, and uplifting those who are most fragile in our communities is the right thing to do.
It is only with the help of volunteers such as the staff at Liberty Mutual that we have been able to be of such service to the charities we support. We extend our sincerest “Thank You”, and hope that Liberty Mutual would continue to extend their valuable support in the future.
