The Lighthouse is a nonprofit education and service center that assists blind and visually impaired people and gives them the tools they need to live independently. As a member agency of the United Way of Greater Houston, The Lighthouse serves around 7,000 people every year and is one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation centers providing services to visually impaired children and adults.
Team members took time out of their workdays to support Lighthouse staff on their weekly board gaming day. They lent a helping hand in completing the players’ Bingo cards and keeping games going, serving the occasional cup of coffee, and providing company during games or exercise time in the gym.
The work with The Lighthouse marks the latest example of Lien Solutions giving back to the communities its employees come from. Since 2016, the Lien Solutions team has also engaged in charitable work for Children of Military Members in Tampa, Friends 4 Life Animal Shelter in Houston, The Nevada Children’s Hospital in Las Vegas, Constables from Houston’s Precinct One, The Tulane Health System in New Orleans, and the Parkinson’s Center of Kentuckiana in Louisville.
“I spent my time with someone who lost their sight due to diabetes," said Christina Villa, Sales Executive for Lien Solutions. “She inspired me to change my eating habits and stay on top of my medication. I think about her every single day since I visited the Lighthouse.”
LaTonya Mathis, Sales Executive for Lien Solutions added, “The energy during game time was contagious (I have a new found appreciation for BINGO!), and the conversations were some to remember. I will always cherish the memories and the peaceful outlook on life they all have."
