Every year The Volunteer Center of Lehigh Valley sponsors a Volunteer Challenge which is a collaboration between businesses and nonprofits for completion of sustainable projects.  Thirteen teammates at Brown & Brown of Lehigh Valley took that challenge and recently gave the gym at the Third Street Alliance for Women and Children in Easton, Pennsylvania a much needed face lift – renovating the doors, cleaning, painting and refinishing surfaces.  The Third Street Alliance for Women and Children provides a safe and healthy space for women, children, and families to live, learn and thrive.

The Volunteer Center also hosts a recognition event to celebrate the many achievements and impact that volunteers have made.  This year, Brown & Brown of Lehigh Valley won the most votes for a medium size company, and that marks the fourth year in a row that a project for the Third Street Alliance has won.

“The Volunteer Challenge is a great way to give back to the community.  Our teammates did a great job for a great organization” said P.J. Vrabel, Team Leader for Employee Benefits at Brown & Brown.  Mr. Vrabel is also a Board Member at The Volunteer Center of Lehigh Valley, a resource on volunteerism for the Lehigh Valley and surrounding communities.
