Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) has announced that their Hydraulics/Inwalls/Machining Division at Plant 45C in Goshen, Ind., will host a panel build for Habitat for Humanity of Elkhart County, Inc. on October 28, 2016. In addition to hosting the build, LCI employees will volunteer labor and expertise to complete the home. LCI’s monetary donations will provide funding for vital supplies needed for the home such as lumber, windows, doors, sinks and more.
Construction of the home will take place at 8:00 am on Friday, October 28, 2016 at LCI Plant 45C, 3325 Hackberry Drive in Goshen, Ind., where approximately 50 LCI employees will work in two groups, each for a two-hour shift, to complete the construction of the home.
“LCI has created an inspired culture of philanthropy that is truly contagious. Here at Plant 45C, we couldn’t be happier to collaborate with Habitat for Humanity and contribute to their mission. Habitat’s work provides a lasting and positive impact on our community, and we’re proud to support them,” commented Nate Bontrager, LCI’s Assistant General Manager of Plant 45C.
LCI employees will be led by team leaders, Lee Brown, Richard Furner, Vanessa Borkholder and Tami Freed. The three-bedroom home will be built onsite at LCI’s Plant 45C, and will be transferred shortly thereafter to its permanent location on Morehouse Avenue in Elkhart, Indiana.
“Multiple LCI plants and divisions have contributed to this project. This is such a great demonstration of how the entire LCI Team is truly dedicated to our core values, Caring About People, and that certainly includes the entire community. I am very proud that the entire team is coming together to support this effort,” said Braden Weldy, LCI’s General Manager of Plant 45C.
