An expression of gratitude

 

LEAP OrganizationClarksville, TN – So often non-profit organizations and churches take their noble missions for granted in expecting businesses and individuals to support their programs. While there is the tax write off incentive and brand marketing exposure for contributions, it takes a special kind of person to weigh the needs of the business against the needs of the organization requesting assistance.

LEAP Executive Director Richard “Reason” Garrett had this to say, “I, myself have been guilty of utilizing media to solicit support for various projects to better our community. Although, it’s for a worthy cause, I recognize that we must do a better job of acknowledging those who make our outreach efforts possible.”

Thank You!
