LEHI, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LGCY Power announced that they were a Slave Stealer Sponsor for Operation Underground Railroad’s Rise Up For Children Gala on Saturday, November 7, 2020. In addition to the $20,000 sponsorship, LGCY Power’s nationwide team of sales reps matched the company’s sponsorship commitment dollar for dollar.
The Rise Up For Children Gala featured a special presentation from Tim Ballard, Founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad, and a live auction designed to raise funds to help the organization rescue children throughout the world.
“Part of our mission statement is to be the best version of yourself and to help others do the same and supporting organizations like Operation Underground Railroad is one of the ways we live our mission statement on a daily basis,” said Doug Robinson, CEO of LGCY Power. “We’ve always been fans of Operation Underground Railroad and their commitment to eradicating child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. I’m a firm believer that serving others brings out the best in people and that has been evident as we communicated our intentions with our team and they came back to us with a commitment to match our sponsorship dollar for dollar. I’m incredibly proud of our team and their dedication to making a difference in the lives of others.”
Operation Underground Railroad’s mission is to rescue children from sex trafficking and sexual exploitation. Since being founded in 2013, Operation Underground Railroad has assembled a team comprised of the world’s leading experts in extraction operations and anti-child trafficking to bring an end to child slavery. The team consists of former CIA, past and present law enforcement and highly skilled operatives that lead coordinated identification and extraction efforts.
“The work Operation Underground Railroad does paves the way for permanent eradication of child sex trafficking and sexual exploitation,” continued Robinson. “We encourage others to join us and donate to support the fight against modern-day slavery and improve the lives of children that have been taken against their will and forced into unthinkable hardships.”
LGCY Power dedicates time and resources throughout the year to support charitable causes and organizations through quarterly service projects with groups such as local homeless shelters, Habitat for Humanity and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Additionally, once a year the company organizes humanitarian missions to areas in need around the globe. In past years, LGCY Power has served in Thailand to build playgrounds at elementary schools, Peru to build homes and plant gardens in remote villages and the Caribbean to help clean and beautify cities suffering from poverty.
