Approximately 250 employees participated by volunteering at one of three charities, including Stop Hunger Now, for which employees packaged approximately 40,000 meals for those in need overseas. Lexington employees also helped clean and maintain a local park in Boston and assembled back-to-school kits for children as volunteers for The Esplanade Association and Cradles to Crayon, respectively.

Today’s activities are just a few examples of Lexington’s commitment to the local Boston community. Throughout 2014, nearly 200 Lexington employees together volunteered 900 hours benefiting 11 different local organizations. The company also has a 50-year tradition of giving back to the Boston community.
