Help Us Give Back to the Community!

Introducing the LWRBA’s Volunteer Initiative, set for October 4 & 5.
Sign ups for volunteers will launch August 1, 2018.

This October, as part of the organization’s mission to “connect, educate, and strengthen the business community in the Lakewood Ranch Region,” the LWRBA is launching the inaugural “The Alliance Gives Back” Volunteer Days 2018.

This is your chance to give back to the community. This volunteer initiative will connect business members with the 40+ Alliance member non-profit organizations to positively impact the community through various activities.

The Alliance is encouraging all its member businesses and professionals to consider dedicating a few hours of their time on one or both our Volunteer Days. Not only are we strengthening our community by working together, but volunteering has been proven to foster strong connections between people because of the shared core values that bring them together in the first place.

Through a sign-up process for both non-profits and the individual volunteers, the LWRBA will establish connections between the two groups ahead of the Volunteer Days of October 4 and 5, 2018. Direct communication between the non-profit organizations and individual volunteers will take place in advance of the actual events.


The LWRBA Community Engagement committee has been actively reaching out to member non-profits about identifying suitable activities for individuals to participate in during either half or full day sessions. The activities will be engaging, impactful and mission driven for each non-profit organization. The deadline to be included ahead of the volunteer sign-up period is July 24th.


Volunteer Sign Ups are set to launch August 1st through a simple online registration process; the registration window will remain open during the month of August. During this time, LWRBA members may select the activity in which they wish to participate. Sign up early, as we suspect some opportunities will fill up fast!

In the weeks leading up to our Volunteer Days, non-profits will communicate directly with their respective volunteers about details specific to their activity. While volunteering, each volunteer participant will receive their own “Alliance Gives Back” T-shirt as a way to promote teamwork and unity!

The LWRBA is thrilled to launch this new initiative and use The Power of Connection to further strengthen our community in 2018 and beyond! Please stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details on volunteer opportunities and how you can help us make a difference.
