Operation Sandwich - 2013.    




5/22/2013 - Operation Sandwich 2013

An attitude of gratitude…

That’s what employees at Charlotte’s & Barrons Mortgage Group, Ltd. demonstrated on Wednesday May 22, 2013 as they gathered for “Operation Sandwich” and assembled over 400 sandwiches for the Urban Ministry Center, a Charlotte-area outreach for the homeless. Employees agree that giving back to the community in this way makes us aware of how fortunate we are. The Urban Ministry Center needs 800 sandwiches a day to meet the needs of the homeless community that it serves. In addition to a soup kitchen, this unique and dynamic organization also provides community programs, medical treatment and other services.
Driven by the simple lesson of an old Proverb, “Love thy neighbor”, and Barrons Mortgage Group, Ltd. joined the Urban Ministry Center to help out, and plans similar projects on a regular basis. and Barrons Mortgage Group, Ltd. are sister companies headquartered in Charlotte’s historic South End and provided everything needed to prepare the sandwiches and delivered them when they were done. It also provided another great opportunity for team building and camaraderie in a company known and recognized for its happy employees and outstanding teamwork. Charlotte Business Journal has recognized us as one of the best places to work in Charlotte, as well as one of the healthiest.
We challenge others in our industry and our business community to follow our example and help us take care of those who aren’t able to take care of themselves. By providing them with basic needs, we are empowering them to become productive citizens with meaningful lives.

“Giving back to the community is an important part of life. This is the community that we live in, that supports us, and we enjoy events like this that allow our employees to help folks that are less fortunate” said CEO Keith Luedeman. “ We have a great team here, and I appreciate all that they do!”
