LGE’s 20 x 2Foundation Logo0,000 year-long campaign launched in January and will provide backpacks, socks, soap, crayons, healthy snacks, diapers and other needed items for babies and kids in the Valley. In total, LGE will donate 20,000 items during 2015. Each month a different nonprofit dedicated to children will benefit from LGE’s fundraising efforts.

“Since my father started LGE Design Build 20 years ago, we have focused on building and creating a better community. It’s what we’ll continue doing for the next 20 years,” said David Sellers, president of LGE Design Build.

Many of the organizations LGE is assisting serve a low-income and homeless population. Inspired by her own experience with homelessness as a child, Carrie Garcia, LGE’s executive assistant who is helping to lead the organization’s 20 x 20,000 campaign, enjoys giving back to these organizations.

“Assisting nonprofit organizations that improve the lives of children from low-income and homeless backgrounds is very rewarding,” Garcia said. “As a company, we want LGE Design Build’s 20th anniversary to make a community-wide impact.”

In January, LGE presented Childhelp, a non-profit charity aiding victims of child abuse, with a $3,000 grant to help train its service dogs. LGE also is designing and building a new dog run at no cost.

“Childhelp is honored and grateful to be one of the recipients of LGE Design Build’s 20,000 Acts of Kindness campaign. By contributing to our animal therapy program in such a significant way, LGE is impacting countless children who have suffered severe abuse by ensuring they are nurtured and loved by our four-legged heroes,” said Sara O’Meara, Childhelp’s founder, CEO & chairman. “Childhelp therapy dogs are responsible for so many breakthroughs and so much healing. LGE’s kindness will create 20,000 miracles for the children we love.”

Childhelp’s service dogs play an important role in supporting abused children.

“When a child is brave enough to tell of their deepest secret, having experienced abuse, we count on the unconditional affection of a dog to provide comfort,” said Maureen Basenberg, Childhelp’s director of Arizona child advocacy programs who oversees the organization’s Facility Dog Program. “The availability of trained facility dogs provides abused children with an abundance of reassurance and affection.”
