Crye-Leike Mt. Juliet Office Honored for Dedication to Community Service

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Every year, Crye-Leike offices devote financial resources and personal hours to help with projects that reshape lives and build a better future for the communities of Middle Tennessee. And every year, the Crye-Leike corporation takes the time to recognize the associates and staff of a particular office for their time and dedication to their community.


At an event earlier this week, Gary Rabideau, managing broker of the Crye-Leike, Mt. Juliet office, accepted Crye-Leike’s coveted Community Service Award for 2005 on behalf of his sales associates and office staff.  The award recognizes Crye-Leike Mt. Juliet’s active involvement in its community and for distinguishing itself in public service activities.


In 2005, the office organized and participated in such events as community blood drives, the collection of school supplies for both local schools and Youth Villages, monthly canned food drives, and the organization of care packages to raise the spirits of local military serving overseas. The office also partnered with Habitat for Humanity, Belinda City Youth Ranch, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the United Way, resulting in $30,000 raised as either direct office participation or individual involvement in charitable events.


“The associates and employees at Mt. Juliet are a truly inspiring team,” said Michele Niec, communications and public relations director. “They believe that by helping each other and working together, we can all prosper in business as well as all other areas of life.”
