What is Luke Day?
An integral part of our brand identity and culture, NextHome wouldn’t be the same without our beloved mascot Luke. In honor of his birthday, we have declared June 15th our company’s annual day of community outreach – Luke Day. On this day, NextHomies across the country step away from their business and come together to serve their local communities and the animals that thrive there. By organizing pet adoption events, hosting vaccine clinics for local veterinary centers, or raising donations for our national charity partner, Canine Companions for Independence, our franchise network joins forces to make a difference on this special day. Luke Day is about collaboration and service, bringing the local community together to support a great cause.
For our Luke Day celebration we decided to have a booth at our local farmers market in Angels Camp to support our local Guide dogs for the Blind Puppy Club. We invited all of our friends and family to join us in the fun of music, great food, and of course puppy cuddles! We raised $300 for Guide dogs for the Blind by selling home-made dog treats swagged out with our beloved NextHome orange and selling custom made recycled climbing rope leashes. The day was such a hit! Being able to talk to our community about the work that both the Guide Dog puppy raiser and puppy in training go through to give someone in need a new life was so rewarding and our office is honored to participate in such a fantastic event!
We LOVE NextHome
