International Women’s History Month – South Sound Clothing Drive

One of GLP Attorneys core values is #compassion. Giving back to our communities and helping others in need exemplifies what GLP Attorneys stands for with hopes of improving the lives of those who need a helping hand. In honor of Women’s History Month, our South Sound Offices held clothing drives and donated to three local nonprofit organizations.  In Graham, donations were brought to Adult & Teen Challenge, in Port Orchard, donations were brought to Georgia’s House, and in Vancouver, donations were brought to the Open House Ministries. A few of our amazing GLP Attorneys employees were lucky enough to hand deliver these items. They shared their experience in their own words:

Sierra Seifert, Marketing/Experienced Legal Assistant: “Marci and I had the pleasure of dropping off the donations we collected for Georgia’s House today! 😊They were so appreciative and remembered us from our previous donation of household/pantry items.  Those items helped the shelter so much, and they were stoked we were back again with tons of woman’s clothing. It sure feels good to give to our local community, thank you for letting us be a part of something great. ❤  (our closets appreciate it too!)”

Camerine Francisco, Front Desk Coordinator in Tacoma: “These three groups provide women in our communities their best chance at success. Our donations were able to support the women in our community gearing up to re-enter the workforce.”

Amazing work GLP Attorneys South Sound! We are so proud of you and all of your contributions to impact the lives of those in need in your own communities.

GLP Attorneys Founder Scott Lundberg Raising Money and Racing for a Cure for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Ironman Mont-Tremblant

In 2010 Scott, then only 49 years old, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He endured eight rounds of chemotherapy, each one on a 21 day cycle that included 5 days in the hospital. The treatment successfully destroyed the cancer when completed in July 2011, but left him severely weakened and with barely any strength.

Before the diagnosis Scott had been an avid marathon runner, and often trained with his wife, Charleen. Together they started Scott on a training program after his chemotherapy, to help him regain strength lost with his cancer treatment. Scott gained a new passion for swimming, biking and running and a new appreciation for what he survived. Amazingly, Scott completed 70.3 mile triathlons in Lake Stevens and Austin in 2013 and the 140.6 mile Canadian Ironman in 2014. Scott is competing in 70.3 mile triathalons in Oceanside, California and Honu, Hawaii in March and May 2015.

Scott is registered for the 140.6 mile Ironman Mont-Tremblant in August 2015 in Quebec, Canada. He is swimming, biking and running to raise money in support of research into non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. All funds raised will go to Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

Scott has a goal to raise $50,000. For more information on Scott’s efforts for this great cause please visit his fundraising website:
