Christmas may be over but employees at Rea & Associates have given the gift that keeps on giving. Staff at Rea & Associates’ 11 firms raised more than 24,000 pounds of food during their annual holiday drive. A tradition that has been going on for six years.

“I’m very proud of our team and their commitment to helping others,” said Lee Beall, the firm’s chief executive. “Helping the community is an important part of our culture. The food drive was a great way for our offices to participate in a firm-wide effort that benefits each of our local communities.”

Each office donated their collected food to a different charity, which included Share-A-Christmas, the Salvation Army, Guernsey County Senior Center, Dublin Food Pantry, Marietta Community Food Pantry, Medina Battered Women’s Shelter, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Food Bank, WomanSafe and Lighthouse Love Center.

Firm-wide, team members donated an average of more than 100 pounds of food per person.
