ELKHART — Lippert Components announces that Elkhart-based Kem Krest Corporation and Genesis Products have begun a social responsibility initiative inspired by LCI’s 100,000 Hours of Community Service initiative.
Today, LCI is launching the digital platform www.ActsofService.com that will be used by the participating companies as a means of connecting employees with local volunteer opportunities and to record and track the number of hours spent performing community service.
A live press event today LCI CEO Jason Lippert, along with Amish Shah of Kem Krest and John Wenger of Genesis Products, discussed the initiatives.
For their initiatives, Kem Krest and Genesis will be encouraging their employees to collectively accrue 20,000 hours of community service by participating in community outreach and volunteer opportunities that support local nonprofit organizations.
“To say we are excited about the future of our community’s philanthropic efforts is an understatement. To see our fellow business leaders dig in and get involved is humbling,” stated Michilah Grimes, LCI’s director of philanthropic partnerships. “We’re very excited to launch www.ActsofService.com and provide it as a resource for our communities.”
The website, www.ActsofService.com, was created by LCI as a platform to connect volunteers from local corporations with community service opportunities shared by local nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit organizations that register on the website can post their volunteer opportunities with the website’s user base of more than 10,000 willing and able employees from LCI, Kem Krest and Genesis.
The website is being offered as a resource to interested corporations and nonprofits located in the Elkhart area.
