Last week we rolled up our sleeves along the Brookshire Brothers team helping spruce up the Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin, Texas! This event is a way for Brookshire Brothers to give back to the community and show its support for the zoo, which is a beloved attraction for people of all ages.
"We're always looking for ways to give back to the communities we serve," said Brookshire Brothers CEO John Alston. "The Ellen Trout Zoo is a special place that brings joy to so many people, and we're proud to support their work."
STAR Brokerage helped coordinate a delicious fish fry lunch for the Brookshire Brothers employees that volunteered catered by our client Louisiana Fish Fry. "It was a great way to end a long day of hard work."
The Brookshire Brothers Volunteer Ellen Trout Zoo Work Day is a wonderful example of how businesses and individuals can work together to make a positive impact on their community. Thanks to the hard work of the Brookshire Brothers volunteers and the generosity of Louisiana Fish Fry, the Ellen Trout Zoo is now even better than before. We had a blast and can't wait for the next one!
*In addition to providing families and schools a chance to see a myriad of animals up close and personal, Ellen Trout Zoo also has an impressive Education Center that provides programs for children of all ages to experience science and learning hands-on!
