LTEN Members Get Ready to Give Back

Charity – By Tim Sosbe

Once again, we’ll share time & resources to help others

In past years, when members came together for the LTEN Annual Conference, one of the highlights for many was the charity event. Each year, large numbers of LTEN members turned out to selflessly help others. In past years, the kindness for strangers LTEN members have shown includes:

  • Writing letters and building care packages for active-duty military personnel.
  • Packing pajamas and books for homeless and foster children with little of their own.
  • Assembling backpacks with school supplies to help students in need.
  • Building baskets of basic health and hygiene supplies for families in low-income shelters.

This year, as LTEN members once again come together for the in-person component of the hybrid conference, another charitable activity is being planned. The LTEN Charity Committee and the LTEN Board of Directors will be announcing the 2021 activity soon.

Meanwhile, conference attendees can once again be prepared to give back, as we know they will.

What about the virtual attendees of the 50th LTEN Annual Conference, and those who can’t attend? Stay tuned as well … we’ll be announcing how you can help too.

As trainers, helping others is what we do.  It’ll be good to do that together again.
