Elkhart, Indiana - With the start of a new year, Lippert Components, Inc. has embarked on a company-wide social responsibility initiative to complete 100,000 hours of community service during 2017. With more than 8,000 employees and 48 facilities, LCI's community outreach initiative aims to give back to the communities from which their employees live, work and play.
LCI will partner with local nonprofits, school systems and community leaders to drive community involvement and reinforce LCI's culture of caring and collaboration. Through this collective effort, LCI hopes to not only inspire its employees, but also hopes their initiative will encourage and inspire others within the community to increase their social responsibility efforts.
"Our employees, our customers and our communities have all made it possible for LCI to be successful and we're very thankful for that," LCI CEO Jason Lippert says. "As LCI continues to grow, we've recognized that our social responsibility and duty to the communities from which we draw has also grown. We're excited to see our core values put into action to complete 100,000 hours of community service, but more than that, we're excited to see our employees step up as community leaders and create positive impacts."
Lippert Components has asked those in the industry to join the company on Thursday, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. EST at LCI's Corporate Office in Elkhart for the 100,000 Hours of Community Service announcement and introduction speech by Jason Lippert.
