A beautiful story of the Volunteer State

May 20, 2016

For some people, the “Volunteer State” is just another name for Tennessee. For Mary Catherine Strobel, it was the perfect description of home. This amazing woman survived incredible hardships; helped family, friends and strangers; and established a tradition of giving to those in need.

Knowing her story, we consider it a huge honor that Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee nominated Lee Company for the 2016 Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards. Thank you! We were humbled to be one of three finalists in the corporate volunteerism category.

2016 Stroble Awards Lee Company

Congratulations to all the nominees, finalists and winners. The awards ceremony on April 21 was an amazing event. The inspirational stories we heard made it clear that everyone there was a winner. And it was wonderful to see how volunteers of all ages and backgrounds roll up their sleeves and devote their talents and time to serve others, even people they may never meet.

The Lee Company team considers this recognition a great honor for us, and a tribute to you. Our nomination salutes the heartfelt efforts of all our employees and customers. Thank you for supporting our Vans4Cans campaign year after year, and helping us feed the hungry.

We encourage you to take Mary Catherine Strobel’s heritage to heart. Find a volunteer program you love, and get involved in the community!
