L-Tron gives back to the community by participating in the first ever “Volunteers Heart ROC” organized by I Heart ROC
L-Tron team member, Julianne, volunteered to participate in the first ever “Volunteers Heart ROC.” The event was organized by I Heart ROC editor Emily Hessney Lynch. Lynch is also the Digital Marketing & Communications Manager at High Tech Rochester.
I Heart ROC
“I Heart ROC is a collection of interviews and stories by some pretty cool people living and working in Rochester.”
I Heart ROC showcases what the people of Rochester love about their city. The website features candid interviews from individuals who live, work, love and breathe all things ROC. Last year, L-Tron team member, Julianne had the pleasure of being featured on the I Heart ROC webpage. You can read her interview here.
“Volunteers Heart ROC” is born from all of the I Heart ROC contributors who have mentioned how they want to give back to the Rochester community. One of the questions during the I Heart ROC interview is “What could be improved about Rochester?” Julianne’s answer focused on political division in the city and the downtown revitalization efforts. She also mentioned her ongoing support of several organizations and local charities including RPD, the Villa of Hope and Gilda’s Club.
“Volunteers Heart ROC” will take place on Saturday, February 17, 2018. For its first event, Volunteers Heart ROC will be donating time to the Cameron Community Ministries. Volunteers will be preparing food and serving lunch in the CCM soup kitchen all morning.
