Last week, the Austin Chamber of Commerce released their annual list of honorees for the Austin Gives Generous Business Awards. Shop LC is one of over two dozen local businesses receiving honors for their charitable giving.
Austin Gives recognizes businesses that have pledged one percent of pre-tax earnings toward community impact efforts. For instance, this includes volunteer time, products, services, and financial support. Also, the program is voluntary with no cost to participants.
The Shop LC One for One Program is the primary giving program at Shop LC. Every purchase provides a nutritious meal to a child in need. Also, as of February 2020, Shop LC is providing over 17 million meals.
“The Generous Business Awards luncheon is one of the most important business events of the year because it uniquely highlights companies that serve as philanthropic models for others,” said VP of Marketing & Customer Engagement at Texas Mutual and 2020 Austin Gives Chair Jeremiah Bentley. “Texas Mutual is proud to have been recognized in the past for our commitment to building a stronger, safer Texas. We look forward to this event every year and love the opportunity to hear from businesses and individual leaders who are role models for the business community. Each year, we pick up tips that help us improve on our philanthropic programs.”
Also, the Austin Chamber of Commerce will recognize honorees during their annual ceremony. The luncheon will occur March 26 at the JW Marriott in Austin.
