Caring for Community
John Hemmingson and the partners and employees at Lakeside have a long history of giving back to the communities in the greater Inland Northwest and beyond. Their contributions and philanthropic efforts make real and lasting change. Hemmingson and our partners seek out organizations and projects that reflect their values, to make the Inland Northwest, — and the world — a better, healthier, happier place to live.
