THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LGI Homes, Inc. (Nasdaq:LGIH) continues support for the Gary Sinise Foundation. The partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation is one way that LGI Homes supports the community year-round through the LGI Giving initiative. The mission of LGI Giving is to exemplify LGI Homes’ core values by supporting the communities that the Company serves through financial contributions and volunteerism.
“We identified a non-profit organization whose mission aligns with our company’s core values,” said Eric Lipar, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of LGI Homes. “We are proud to announce a partnership with the Gary Sinise Foundation who honors our nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.

About LGI Giving
Started in 2016, the LGI Giving initiative was created for LGI employees to have a larger impact on the communities in which they serve through volunteerism and financial contributions – strengthening local relationships and demonstrating loyalty. Since then this initiative has grown to support an abundance of organizations each year. Through this initiative the Company has contributed over $1,200,000 in corporate non-profit sponsorships and donated over 20,000 employee service hours. Through LGI Giving’s Service Impact Day, in which all LGI offices across the nation turn their focus away from sales and closings to participate in this special day created to increase volunteerism throughout our company, Company operations are put on hold for every employee to donate their time and energy into supporting a local non-profit.
