Lynden Logistics and Lynden Transport employees in Houston had a chance to play Easter Bunny this spring after Business Support Analyst Joyce Teehan responded to a request for help from Montgomery County Child Protective Services and Child Welfare Division. After the Easter Basket Project lost its corporate sponsor, Joyce and Lynden employees volunteered to secure donations then gather and assemble 800 Easter baskets during lunch hours and after work to distribute to foster children. “Everyone at Lynden Houston has been involved,” Joyce says. “I don’t think the organization expected Lynden to collect all the baskets they needed, but they were pleasantly surprised!” says Houston International Service Center Manager Vickie Gould. Below, employees load the baskets for delivery.
