A rising tide lifts all boats – John F. Kennedy
At Look East, we like to encourage a culture of giving. Sometimes it is in the form of helping a colleague in a pinch or giving attention to work/life balance. Other times it’s donating time to a greater cause.
Each year, as part of the 50 // $500 program, when employees volunteer 50 hours of their personal time to a cause or organization, Look East provides a $500 gift in their name, to the organization. In 2018, three employee owners were recognized for their contributions.

Jana McGuire and her family volunteered on several occasions for Heroes Into Homes. The organization is a group of local Lincoln, Nebraska United States Marine Corps veterans who raise money, solicit furnishings and organize volunteers to furnish apartments in a new homeless veterans complex near Lincoln’s VA hospital.
