Lippert Gives Back for National Volunteer Week

Lippert Components Inc. is participating in National Volunteer Week to encourage people nationwide to give back to their communities while exploring the “why” behind their service, company leaders said.

This is the fourth year the company has participated in the nationwide initiative.

From Tuesday to Thursday, Lippert employees have come together forming an assembly line at the Elkhart County Fairgrounds and packing boxes of much-needed supplies they will distribute to local schools and nonprofits.

“There’s still a great need within our community,” said Michilah Grimes, Lippert’s director of corporate and community impact. “So we want to help support those organizations that support our team members and community members by helping them with some of their needs.”

The company’s goal this week is to pack more than 110,000 items into 5,400 boxes. More than 1,500 team members are volunteering, according to Grimes.

This year’s beneficiaries include the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties, La Casa de Amistad, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana and seven schools in Elkhart and St. Joseph counties.
