Volunteer Opportunity: Board Member, Committee Member, Boots on the ground volunteers, Grant Writers, and more!

National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland & Delaware volunteers are essential to hundreds of local Kidney Walk, NKF Golf Classic, or other social events. Rally your tribe of kidney health warriors and meet others who share your vision of a world without Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Without you, it doesn’t happen! Volunteers help educate patients and perform kidney health screenings and outreach on whole communities for kidney disease each year. Professional volunteers put their expertise to work for people, advancing kidney disease diagnosis, and treatment. It takes a community of passionate families, patients, professionals, and friends to keep our mission moving forward: we rely on volunteers to raise critical funds, open doors and be our kidney health ambassadors on social media. Volunteer advocates use their compelling personal experiences of living daily with kidney disease to make it real for government policy makers and motivate them to pass legislation affecting millions of lives.

LBC spoke with Greenberg Gibbons employees and LBC graduates Michelle Schiffer, LBC Class of 2018, Barry Sheehan, LBC Class of 2021, and Alicyn Ames, LBC Class of 2022 to learn more.

Through LBC, Greenberg Gibbons supports the growth of its employees, creates new opportunities for business development and gives back to the community. Michelle Schiffer, Senior Vice President of Asset Management at Greenberg Gibbons, LBC Class of 2018 graduate, and Chair of the LBC Board, explained “LBC’s mission aligns with Greenberg Gibbons’ core values. It’s providing a platform for our employees to grow, to have different perspectives and to engage in the community”.

Barry Sheehan, Property Manager at Hunt Valley Town Center and The Shops at Kenilworth and LBC Class of 2021 graduate, explained that the LBC experience helped him build confidence as a leader through the feedback of the 360° evaluation and gain diverse perspectives by meeting leaders from different industries. Barry said, “I was blown away by the wealth and breadth of the information that was presented over those couple of months. We got to meet the decision-makers that had an impact on important issues on a day-to-day basis.”

Access to key leaders through LBC has helped Greenberg Gibbons support more than 50 nonprofits company-wide and to network with leaders for both business and community opportunities such as a chalk walk with the Lea Marie Faraone Foundation to support young people battling cystic fibrosis. Michelle Schiffer shared, “LBC has an impressive history of working with Baltimore- based businesses and their leaders. It’s a great opportunity to develop meaningful relationships within our business community.”

Alicyn Ames, Director of Marketing and Communications at Greenberg Gibbons and incoming participant in the LBC Class of 2022, says she looks forward to the opportunity. “Through learning about more organizations, initiatives and causes, we will be able to leverage our different projects throughout the community to be able to support those missions.” Alicyn also shared that Greenberg Gibbons is at a pivotal point, poised for growth and expansion. Participating in LBC helps ensure, “that we are attracting exciting talent from the area…The more well-rounded we are as a company, the more desirable our company will be to others who are looking at the industry as a possible career path.”

LBC and Greenberg Gibbons look forward to building upon their partnership to bring together diverse perspectives, powerful connections and a stronger community.
