THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Oct. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LGI Homes, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGIH) is proud to announce the successful return of the Company’s annual Service Impact Day, which was held on September 22, 2022. During this special event, every LGI Homes employee stepped away from their usual responsibilities to dedicate their full day to support local charities through volunteerism and financial gifts. As a result, over 7,500 hours were volunteered and over $260,000 was donated in support of 61 organizations in 19 states.
“Service Impact Day is one of the primary ways our Company demonstrates its commitment to being a people-focused organization,” said Eric Lipar, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of LGI Homes. “During this event, every LGI Homes employee focuses on the needs of their local community and, in partnership with numerous non-profit organizations around the nation, uses their time, skills and experience to positively impact people’s lives. Because in-person volunteering was temporarily put on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic, this year was especially gratifying as we once again gathered together in person, rolled up our sleeves and worked alongside our non-profit partners to make a positive difference and strengthen our communities.”
Service Impact Day is the hallmark event in the Company’s philanthropic initiative LGI Giving, through which it anticipates donating upwards of $1,000,000 in 2022 to support the communities where it does business.
