“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” – Winston S. Churchill
Originally from the Dallas area, Lindsey joined Boot Campaign in 2019 and is the organization’s Director of Development & Corporate Parterships. For Lindsey, being part of the Boot Campaign team is an opportunity for her to connect to her family roots and give back to the men and women that have sacrificed so much for our country. Lindsey’s great grandfather was a Captain in the United States Army Air Force in World War II and a Purple Heart recipient. While Lindsey didn’t know her great grandfather, she was extremely close to her great grandmother well into her adult life and remembers the many stories she shared.
Giving is powerful, and Lindsey has a true passion for not only giving back to her community personally, but inspiring others to give. For 18 years, Lindsey worked at The Container Store and was responsible for creating and managing their charitable giving program, along with developing cause marketing partnerships and events. In addition, Lindsey previously had the opportunity to assist at the Waco Chamber of Commerce gaining experience in development working on the premier Junior Golf Tournament, Starburst Junior Golf Classic and other fundraising events.
Someone once said that “in moments of desperation, fear and helplessness, each of us can be a rainbow of hope, doing what we can to extend ourselves in kindness and grace to one another.” Lindsey is honored to be just that for Boot Campaign while encouraging other civilians to lace up for the military community.
Lindsey has a bachelor’s degree in communications from Baylor University.
