Giving Tuesday 2017

Teenage diarist Anne Frank wrote more than half a century ago these powerful and wise words from one so young.
“No one has ever become poor from giving.”

To honor the spirit of giving to those in need, LLoyd is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday 2017.
All year long, we will continue to partner with JDRF to fight Type 1 Diabetes through our Placements with a Purpose Program.
However, for the Holiday Season 2017, we have added two initiatives to our corporate social responsibility platform.

LLoyd Corporate HQs on Long Island, is supporting Long Island Cares through a food drive to the Harry Chapin Food Bank.

LLoyd South in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, is supporting the Salvation Army in their efforts to help clothe the people of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands as they recover from recent devastating storms.

We welcome and gratefully appreciate any donations to these worthy causes.  Let’s each make the world a better place, one person at a time.
Thank you.    #givingtuesday

Barbara first became affiliated with Moxxie three years ago and her support for the organization continued to grow as she shared its vision and goals.

Her goal is to be an extension of her clients’ Human Resources department and to help increase their overall productivity.

Barbara has consistently demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the development of the Long Island workforce and Human Resources Community. As an active member of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM) – Long Island Chapter, she was a member of the Workforce Readiness Committee, and currently serves on the Membership Committee.
