League’s Starting Line Up, LCA Edition: Manuel Hernandez

At League, we believe in creating styles that not only look good, they do good. This is why we make many of our own products at our company-owned, social conscious facility League Central America (LCA), located in El Salvador.

Today we’d like to introduce you to one of our LCA team members, Manuel Hernandez. ManueI has been working for LCA for six years. “I came here after living in the United States for eight years,” he said. “In Miami, I got a second chance at life when I was treated for Leukemia. I always ask myself how God wants me to act, and when I returned to El Salvador, I knew it was my duty to help those in need.”

At LCA, that’s exactly what he does. “I started at League managing the program for ex-gang rehabilitation,” he said. “With the second chances that the company offers, I’ve become very close with people with needs, like our handicapped and homeless employees. I consider these League team members like Fernel, Rony, and many other like my family.”

He finds working with team members at League deeply satisfying. “It brings me great happiness to help these people by bringing them to doctor’s appointments, and getting their medicines, and to be on-call for whenever they need me.”

Manuel also has a big family. “I’m blessed with a great family. I have six children, some of whom work for League,” he said. “My children have allowed me to share my values with them, and they’ve taken on the responsibility to also helps others.”

Manuel values working at LCA. “League is a factory with many opportunities, and this is the new El Salvador for me and for anyone that wants to excel.” Thanks for being such a great part of the LCA team, Manuel!
