At Leone, McDonnell & Roberts, community is at the heart of everything of we do. We attribute our strength and success as a firm to the partnerships and connections that have been forged throughout the years.

Recently, our employees collected donations for a deserving Dover, New Hampshire organization, Zebra Crossings.

The mission of Zebra Crossings is to enrich the lives of youth with chronic medical conditions by fostering greater self-confidence, a sense of independence and a desire to realize their full potential through fun and engaging enrichment programs that build a strong and caring community support network for families.

The programs at Zebra Crossings include summer camps, overnight retreats and get-togethers that serve youth and teens throughout the country. Programs are inclusive of medical diagnosis groups such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, JRA, heart conditions, hemophilia, severe allergies, skin conditions and autoimmune disorders. Care and support are provided by trained medical staff (mostly volunteers) in a safe environment to give respite to caregivers while offering participants the experience of building lasting friendships and connections.

Our team purchased wish list items for Zebra Crossings to include gift cards, office provisions, arts and crafts supplies, games, health and personal care items and more.

“The children and families served by the good work of this organization is simply awe-inspiring,” said Marketing Director Sarah Scheffer. “Hope, love and connection are among life’s greatest gifts, and Zebra Crossings has done an amazing job building their programming around those pillars…changing lives for the better.”
