Each organization can face hardships and setbacks at one time or another, and when met with support and graciousness from surrounding communities and individuals- you can’t help but be inspired to give back. At RLF, we believe in doing good deeds for others including our clients, communities, and internal team. Whether through donations to humane charities, raising funds for guide dog programs, corroborating local businesses, hosting hunger projects, celebrating monthly team member birthdays, or extending gratitude to a team member who has gone above and beyond, we believe in being attentive wherever there are opportunities to help others. Some of our team mentor our newer staff, some organize blood drives, and others selflessly offer their skill sets to restore internal operations. The idea is to consciously increase the goodness of the world through selfless acts, no matter how small. We work to inspire and nurture the human spirit, and that can encourage unexpected kindness among strangers.
