WEAR LOVE: COMPASSION

As Christians we’re expected to be uncommonly compassionate towards everyone, but especially those in need (read Luke 6). That’s why we want to be strategic about the “extras” we have (time, money, influence, etc.) and “do more” together. Instead of starting our own initiatives, we think it’s more wise to come alongside organizations who are already making a difference in our community. Each of the WEAR LOVE initiatives listed below have a reputation for financial stewardship and ethical practices – otherwise they wouldn’t be on our list.

HOW DO YOU WEAR LOVE?

At EastLake, we believe in supporting the efforts already underway by the many great non-profit organizations doing good work in the Tri-Cities. In addition to what we’re already doing, EastLake wants to partner with organizations that our people are already supporting. Let us know where YOU wear love and we’ll make a small donation in your honor.
