Seven Causes Johnson Lambert is Advocating for This Holiday Season

As the year comes to a close, our team is taking time to give back to the communities in which we live and work. As a firm, we’re proud to financially support causes that are near and dear to our hearts, including health advocacy, fighting hunger, youth and child development, shelter and safety, and the environment. Keep reading to learn more about the organizations we’re giving back to.

Health + Advocacy

Johnson Lambert views supporting the health of our communities as not only a priority, but a necessity. Through giving to organizations that support research and raising awareness, and funding families to receive the treatment their loved one desperately needs, we look to better the lives of those who need it.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand is changing the lives of children with cancer through funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer.

Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation advances innovative research and improves quality of life for individuals and families impacted by paralysis.

JRDF One Walk From funding innovative research to advocating for government action to providing a support structure for our community, no other organization does more to fight type 1 diabetes (T1D) than JDRF.

Marcus Autism Center offers families access to the latest research, comprehensive testing, and science-based treatments to maximize the potential of children with autism.

Social Empowerment

With our giving to the below organizations, Johnson Lambert hopes to empower individuals of all abilities to live a healthy and happy life with heightened opportunities for accessibility.

K9s for Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery.

Tammy Lynn Center empowers individuals of all abilities to live their fullest life, serving children, adults, and families through on-site and community-based programs: educational services, respite care, early childhood intervention, community living support, and residential living.

Hunger Relief

Within our communities we know that 1 in 8 children worry about their next meal. Hunger deprives kids of more than food, it also impacts their mental and physical health. By giving back to organizations that fight hunger, we hope to help provide meals, healthier living, and hope to those in our communities.

Backpack Buddies is designed to provide children experiencing food insecurity with nutritious, kid-friendly, pre-packed meals for the weekend—when they would not have access to a school’s free lunch and breakfast. The Food Shuttle works with school guidance counselors and social workers across our seven-county service area to help identify students with the greatest risk of food insecurity.

Feeding America responds to the needs of individuals struggling with food insecurity by supporting local food banks with food, funds, and partnerships.

Feeding Chittenden works to alleviate hunger by feeding people and cultivating opportunities. As the largest direct service emergency food provider in Vermont, Feeding Chittenden serves over 12,000 people each year.

Helping Grow Children

These organizations that Johnson Lambert has chosen to support provide impactful resources and experiences to young children in marginalized communities.

Capital City Clauses brightens the holidays for local children in need by donating thousands of new toys, and financial aid to need based toy programs in Wake County, North Carolina.

Emerson Waldorf School provides a Pre-K-12 grade education based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner that inspires our students to become independent and creative thinkers who are collaborative leaders in social and environmental justice.

Operation Christmas Child helps provide children affected by war, poverty, and other disasters with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.

St. John’s Fire Department  We have elected to donate equally to the fire department on Johns Island who is in charge of Stuff-A-Truck to help families from Wadmalaw Island.

Youth Development + Support

Social and emotional empowerment of youth in vulnerable situations are the key focuses of the organizations that Johnson Lambert has chosen to give to in this category. From nurturing them in the classroom to providing them with meaningful mentoring relationships, supporting youth development is a priority of our giving.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”) from age seven through high school graduation.

Classroom Champions empowers children to thrive academically, socially and emotionally. Through the mentorship and mindset of world-class athletes, we improve student engagement, build growth mindsets, and inspire positive classroom culture.

Comfort Zone Camp empowers grieving children to fully realize their capacity to heal, grow, and lead more fulfilling lives.

Outright Vermont works to build a Vermont where all LGBTQ+ youth have hope, equity, and power as an organizational model built on youth-adult partnerships which create mutual opportunities for growth, learning, and skill development.

Shelter + Safety

These organizations prioritize housing and safe living for children and families in our communities. Offering a temporary solution or the resources needed to establish independent living, providing a safe place to sleep is a crucial need for the individuals these organizations reach.

Committee on Temporary Shelter provides emergency shelter, services, and more for Vermonters who are experiencing homelessness or are marginally housed.

Daniel Kids improves the lives of children and families by helping professionals, clients, and their respective organizations establish and maintain effective Independent Living Programs.

Florence Crittenton House provides safe housing, medical care, education, and other support services to pregnant, parenting, and young women in foster care so they can have the skills and resources needed to have a healthy start in life – for today and tomorrow.

Environment + Animals

In addition to people, supporting animals and the environment for in which our communities exist is an additional cause we care about at Johnson Lambert.

LifeLine Animal Project has the mission of ending the shelter euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals, and they are the largest animal welfare organization in Georgia.

St. Augustine Wild Reserve provides a home for unwanted and abused exotic animals, with top-quality care for all animals throughout their lives at the sanctuary.

Giving back is a year-long commitment at Johnson Lambert, and our team is proud to support organizations with our time, skills, and dollars.
