From South Africa to San Francisco, our Community Involvement Teams (CIT) give LS&Co. employees the chance to volunteer both during company hours and outside of the workplace. The latest example comes from Cape Town, South Africa, where a group of employees put their creativity to work for students in a sustainable way this back-to-school season.

A group of more than 40 volunteers from our Epping facility used fabric scraps to create denim pencil cases for students who reside at the St. Joseph’s Home, a pediatric care facility for children with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. The local Cape Town CIT delivered their hand-crafted cases, filled with needed school supplies, and took time off to visit and play with the children.

“It was such a treat to visit the home, spend time with the children and meet the amazing group of people that work at St Joseph’s Home,” said one employee who participated in the event.  “We left feeling truly blessed and inspired by the experience.”

Here are a few images from the day:
