Jones Lang LaSalle Celebrates the Holidays with Community Service Day at Sedgefield Elementary, Charlotte, NC


CHARLOTTE, Dec. 20, 2011 —  Today employees from commercial real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle celebrated the holiday season with a Community Service Day. Thirty employees and vendors of the firm’s Charlotte team rolled up their sleeves and donned their coveralls to paint a mural at Sedgefield Elementary School in Charlotte, NC.  The 500-square-foot mural depicting children and healthy eating was painted in the school’s cafeteria and will be ready for when the students return to school from winter break in January.

“One of the best ways to enjoy this time of year is by giving back,” said Chase Monroe, Charlotte Market Director, Jones Lang LaSalle.  “We have a wonderful group of generous employees who have devoted their time to various programs with Sedgefield. We fully support the mission of this school and the student’s achievement goals.”

Jones Lang LaSalle has partnered with the school since August and has worked on a number of initiatives including a school supply drive, a fundraising campaign as well as tutoring and mentoring programs. Next year, volunteers from Jones LaSalle will host a student reading competition, plan and lead a student field trip and host an end of school celebration for the students and staff.

“We are thrilled that Jones Lang LaSalle selected Sedgefield Elementary School to sponsor this year. Our entire student body, families and our community have been enriched by its support,” said Ivy Gill, Principal, Sedgefield Elementary School.  “The commitment, dedication and sponsorship of Jones Lang LaSalle have provided an array of sunshine throughout our school and have touched the lives of boys and girls through its efforts of mentoring, serving on the PTA board, tutoring, beautification of the school, holiday donations and many other acts of kindness.”

“We are thankful to Jones Lang LaSalle for extending extra hands and for helping to make our school a wonderful environment for boys and girls to learn,” said Gill.
