LW Consulting, Inc. (LWCI) is proud to give back to the community through various charity efforts. Throughout the years, we promote volunteer work through initiatives targeting poverty, hunger and breast cancer awareness, among other important social issues. The company has participated in these events both as a firm and through the actions of individual members of the LWCI team.
All together, 25 LWCI staff members have contributed to charitable organizations in 22 different locations, supporting groups such as the Salvation Army, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and the Boy Scouts of America. For Goodwill Industries International Inc., we’ve contributed to six different locations through eight of our members.
If you’ve read our bio pages, you know that all of our leading staff members care passionately about making a difference and helping others improve. We bring that same passion to our good works, and have used that to interact with special public events on multiple occasions. It’s about more than just supporting healthcare and wellness: We strive to find effective ways of taking part in helpful causes.
