New Foundation embodies the Lennox commitment to giving back to communities where employees live and work.
RICHARDSON, Texas, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Lennox, a leading provider of innovative solutions in the HVACR industry, recently established the LII Lennox Foundation to further the company's commitment to giving back to communities where employees live and work. Volunteerism is an important part of the LII Lennox Foundation. Lennox provides employees with annual Volunteer Time Off (VTO) to encourage them to volunteer for their favorite charitable causes. In addition, the LII Lennox Foundation matches employee donations of up to $5000 to eligible charities every year, and employees can apply for volunteer and Foundation grants to give to charities that matter most to them.
The LII Lennox Foundation is pleased to announce its philanthropic contribution and expanded partnership with Operation Warm, a national nonprofit dedicated to providing warmth, confidence and hope for children in need. Founded in 1998, Operation Warm and its partners have served over 5 million children across North America with brand-new coats and shoes. Lennox employees at many locations have been involved with Operation Warm for over four years, and the new grant expands the relationship to more Lennox locations in the USA.
The expanded contribution will enable Operation Warm to purchase brand-new winter coats for children in need. Furthermore, Lennox employees will volunteer and hand out coats at schools in communities where the company operates. This year, the partnership is focused on the following locations: Richardson, Texas; Carrollton, Texas; Marshalltown, Iowa; and Orangeburg, South Carolina.
Commenting on the Foundation's impact, CEO Alok Maskara emphasized, "The LII Lennox Foundation remains dedicated to making a meaningful difference, and I'm proud of our engagement with Operation Warm. Through strategic partnerships and volunteer initiatives, we aim to uplift communities where our employees live and work."
