Linebarger Works to Protect Employees While Supporting Local Businesses

Since the beginning of the COVID-19, Linebarger has been working to keep our employees safe and our communities strong. While practicing social distancing guidelines in our offices and providing our clients with excellent customer service, Linebarger has supported local and small businesses, a mainstay of the communities we serve.

Our Dallas office supply vendor, 2M, is a Dallas-based business run by three brothers. When cleaning and PPE essentials were low, they did their best to keep the office well-stocked. Their dedication and our commitment to partner with a local business helped keep our employees in Dallas safe.

Onsite staff in Dallas have also been treated to three catered meals a week, mostly provided by local favorites. Taqueria Taxqueno owner, Amando Monroy, delivers the meals himself and shared that they wouldn’t be in business if it were not for Linebarger’s weekly orders. The Dallas office also made sure to support local businesses over Thanksgiving by hosting a pie-pick-up. Staff ordered more than 80 pies from the local bakery Sweet J’s Bakes.

The Fort Worth office is ordering smoked turkeys and hams from Angelo’s BBQ Restaurant, a local BBQ restaurant in Fort Worth, for all their employees for Christmas. The family-owned restaurant opened in 1958 and continues to be one of the most recognized restaurants in Fort Worth. Ordering employees a ham or turkey from Angelo’s is a longstanding tradition in the Fort Worth office, one that even COVID-19 won’t derail.

The Lufkin Office orders Christmas gifts for clients from Rattle Snake Ranch Pecans out of Crockett, Texas. Rattle Snake Ranch Pecans is located on a 20,000-acre working ranch. Owners Clint and Hanna Craycraft graduated from Texas A&M University and are involved in every aspect of their operations. The Lufkin office also orders Christmas cookies from local bakeries in Lufkin.

Linebarger’s Houston office has also been busy supporting their local community. Managing Partner Norman Nelson purchased 770 sweaters for Booker T. Washington High School in the Houston Independent School District after Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner put out the request. The Houston office also buys lunch from Roostar, Pappadeaux, Salt Grass Steak House, Chick-fil-a, and PF Changs weekly.

The Corpus Christi office makes it a point to order box lunches for all onsite staff from Mr. G’s barbecue. Staff at Mr. G’s barbecue had to change the former buffet-style restaurant into a drive-thru operation to fit the social distancing guidelines and continue serving customers.

“This is something that we do on a regular basis,” Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson Managing Partner Paul Chapa told KRIS 6 News. “And (to) try to help different local businesses in town. We’re blessed with a lot of great restaurants here in Corpus Christi and again blessed with tremendous employees, so we try to reward them.”

As 2020 draws to a close, Linebarger will continue to put its employees’ safety first while also supporting our local businesses and communities.
