Celebrate the 2022 Smith Leonard Day of Service in the 12 “Ways” of Service

Smith Leonard’s Annual Day of Service Supports 12 Organizations

The annual Smith Leonard Day of Service is one of the ways our firm supports the communities in which our employees live and work. On November 18, more than 70 SL team members served in 12 opportunities selected for this year.

To highlight these organizations and their service opportunities, we will be recognizing them during a special series in December – 12 “Ways” of Service.

Check back each day December 1-12 as we share the highlights of our service to another organization in our community.
