A Blitz and a Blessing

August 17, 2015

“Your home is where our heart is.” And, in July, Lee Company’s professional plumbers embraced a heartwarming opportunity, volunteering for our third annual Builders Blitz with Habitat for Humanity of Williamson and Maury counties.

During the 15-day build, our team provided all the plumbing labor required at the new home, including installation of the water heater.

“We love serving our community, so every year we look forward to the Home Builders Blitz,” says Zac Coppock, Plumbing Field Supervisor. “It’s wonderful to be part of the teamwork and dedication that goes into building a home that will be a great blessing to a deserving family in need!”

This year’s home was built for KaRynda Barner and her three daughters. Since applying to Habitat for Humanity in October 2011, KaRynda has been working hard for their new home, taking the required classes and building sweat equity by helping to build homes for other families.

“I loved working on other homes and taking classes on how to maintain my house,” KaRynda says. “I feel so blessed that I will have the opportunity to own my own home. I look forward to being able to provide a better life for my children. The Habitat program is such a blessing.”

Thanks to our friends at Kenny Pipe and Supply for donating the plumbing materials. Working together, we can all be a blessing. You’ll find more information on Habitat for Humanity here.


Safety tips to start the school year

August 10, 2015


As families throughout our community start out the 2015-16 school year, it’s the perfect time to brush up on a few school-related safety tips. Safety is an integral part of Lee Company’s culture, so it’s a pleasure for us to share these reminders with you:

  • Do you drive through a school zone on the way to work? Slow down! Watch out for the increased traffic, kids darting across the street and police officers enforcing the reduced speed limit. Give yourself a little extra time to get where you’re going, and avoid unnecessary stress and potential accidents.
  • Put the phone away. School kids don’t always remember to look both ways, so it’s extremely important for drivers to pay full attention to the road.  If that text or call can’t wait, pull over.
  • Keep a copy of your kids’ schedule, so you know what time to pick them up or when they should call to let you know they’re home. Now’s the perfect time to add school holidays, teacher workshops, etc., to your calendar. We have included 2015-2016 school calendars here for you!
  • Take a photo of your kids on the first day of school. It’s a wonderful memory and it’s important to always have a current photo.
  • Do your kids ride their bikes to school? Walk? Take the bus? Whatever mode of transportation they use, you want them to get there and back safely. Download more safety tips here.
