Lippert Components Inc. (LCI) announced that its team members from facilities around the United States will spend time planting trees as a part of an Arbor Day celebration, according to a press release.
In a partnership with the city of South Bend’s Venues, Parks & Arts (VPA), about 20 team members from LCI Plant 58 will volunteer at South Bend’s Kelly Park on April 28 to help beautify the public space. As part of the Kelly Park beautification LCI team members will be planting arborvitae and boxwood trees. Later, LCI teams, along with their family members, will plant 10 trees of various species at Muessel Grove Park, Brownfield Park, Keller Park, Pinhook Park, Riverside Drive, and Oakwood in South Bend.
In total, LCI team members will plant more than 100 trees around the U.S. on Arbor Day.
“By participating in Arbor Day activities, LCI is able to give back to not only the community but also to the environment,” said Erin Kent, LCI’s director of human resources. “Planting a tree is a small gesture to give back in a way that positively affects everyone.”
LCI’s Arbor Day tree planting is a part of the company’s larger initiative to give back 100,000 hours of community service throughout 2018.
