During these unprecedented events with constant headlines of shortages of medical supplies swirling around everyone, its refreshing to learn that local businesses are stepping up when they can.
The Louisiana Loggers Self Insured Fund (LLSIF) donated 36 pairs of safety glasses to the Winn Medical Parish Medical Center (Medical Center) this week.
According to Mark Files, Safety Engineer at LLSIF, he recently received a call from his wife, Ashley Files, who works in human resources at the Medical Center, asking if they might have any safety glasses. Files told the WPJ that when he contacted LLSIF Office Manager Jeanie Gaar, she responded, “we’d do anything to help out the community, especially at a time like this.”
The LLSIF, located in Winnfield, was created and authorized in 1994 as an innovative alternative market for worker’s compensation coverage. Their primary objective is to offer reasonable premiums, loss control services, and superior claims management for their members.
