Pillar Talk Involved in the Community
March 31, 2018
Steve’s a Buckles-Smith product specialist. He handles Rockwell products with the same precision as he handles his guitar. When Steve isn’t working at the San Leandro Branch he’s focusing his time on his Blues/Retro Rock Soul band. “We’ve been together since 2009,” said Steve, “We wanted to do a Christmas show for a long time, and we thought we should focus on a charity.” The recovery effort concerning destroyed homes during the Santa Rosa fire of October 2017 was chosen. The proceeds that Steve earned during their Christmas concert at the Englander Pub in San Leandro directly helped those afflicted.
Buckles-Smith sponsored a generous contribution to the proceeds that the band raised. Steve personally handed a check to customers of Buckles-Smith who were affected by the fires. “I looked someone right in the eyes and handed them a check. It was a gratifying experience; wish we could have given them more. Steve was impressed with the way Buckles gave back. He said, “A lot of companies talk about giving back to the community, but Buckles-Smith is not only talking the talk but we walk the walk and commit to our promise. I’m really impressed by that and hope that we can do more in the future.”
Steve embodies one of our four pillars of Buckles-Smith. We pledge to be vital to our preferred customers, to be the preferred channel for our suppliers, an engaging workplace for employees, and involved in our community.
