RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) announced today that 200 care packages will be sent to active U.S. servicemembers thanks to a recent volunteer effort led by more than 100 of its Information Technology Department employees. As part of an annual “giving back” team-building effort, Lincoln employees filled packages with snacks, personal hygiene items, games and handwritten thank you notes. Each package will be distributed to active deployed military personnel by Liberty USO, an organization whose mission is to enhance the quality of life of the U.S. Armed Forces personnel and their families.
Lincoln teamed up with Widely Different, a team building company that partners with corporations like Lincoln Financial across the country, to design and execute the event.
“Hosting and participating in this event is our way of saying thank you to the many men and women who serve our country,” said Ken Solon, executive vice president and chief information officer at Lincoln Financial Group. “Lincoln has a long history of supporting and honoring the bravery and sacrifice of our military – and we hope that sending packages filled with some of the comforts of home can help brighten a service member’s day.”
