EMPLOYEE LITE FOUNDATION

Most companies have philanthropic programs. What sets ours apart is that it is managed completely by employees who are dedicated to making a difference in their communities.

Since its inception in 1999, the Employee LITE Foundation (Lives Inspired Through Employees) has received employee contributions, pledges and company-matched funds exceeding one million dollars. One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly into our communities in the form of grants to local nonprofit organizations or assistance for individuals or families - sponsored by employees - who are experiencing personal hardships.

An employee-run allocation committee receives and reviews applications to determine where dollars are to be spent each year. Funds have provided everything from children's playground equipment to emergency equipment for volunteer fire departments to food pantry assistance.

But the Employee LITE Foundation goes beyond monetary donations. Employees also donate their time. Volunteer projects have ranged from assisting with activities such as charity benefits, Santa's workshops, school backpack collections, and youth events to helping with cleanup after a house fire.
