Crye-Leike North Little Rock Office Honored for Dedication to Community Service
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – 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 Arkansas. 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.
David Goldstein, managing broker of the Crye-Leike’s North Little Rock office, accepted on behalf of sales associates and staff, Crye-Leike’s coveted Community Service Award, recognizing the office’s active involvement in the community and ability to distinguish itself through public service activities.
When residents of neighboring Louisiana were forced from their homes by Hurricane Katrina, the associates and staff at Crye-Leike, North Little Rock collected money, clothes, furniture and even eyeglasses for those who had lost everything. They provided transportation and shuttle services, and helped to secure housing for their new neighbors.
Crye-Leike, Little Rock continued its pledge to community service with such activities as collecting Christmas gifts for residents of the VA Hospital, cooking dinner for the Ronald McDonald house, and providing food baskets and gifts benefiting Second Genesis, a successful program helping women who have recently been released from prison reestablish themselves in society.
Recently, the office also held the Crye-Leike Charity Classic Golf Tournament, benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. With 72 golfers and over 25 volunteers, they were able to raise over ten thousand dollars to support the important cause. In conjunction with the Walk to Cure Diabetes, the North Little Rock office has collected over $19,500 to date, with 100 percent of all funds raised benefiting the Foundation. The 2006 Crye-Leike Charity Classic Golf Tournament is scheduled for October 6th, and hopes are high that donations can meet or exceed those of 2005.
“All regional recipients are truly inspiring,” 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.”
