LMG, a national provider of video, audio and lighting support, celebrated 30 years of business on Mar. 17.
As part of the anniversary celebration, LMG launched a charitable campaign across its six nationwide office locations. Giving back to its local communities, LMG’s campaign “30-in-30” celebrates 30 years in support of 30 causes. LMG is headquartered in Orlando and has additional offices in Dallas, Nashville, Tampa and Las Vegas.
“We are very grateful to be able to celebrate 30 years of business and wanted to find a special way to honor the occasion and give back to our local communities,” states Les Goldberg, CEO/president, LMG. “I cannot imagine a better way to commemorate this milestone, which is very personal to me, than by supporting 30 causes that are personal to our amazing staff and surrounding communities.”
The charitable campaign ends in March 2015. The firm has committed to supporting 30 causes through many outlets, including volunteering, gear donations, employee drives and collections and participation in several charitable events to generate awareness. When developing the action plan and finalizing the list of 30 causes, LMG encouraged employees to submit ideas and charities that had personal meaning to them.
Some examples of planned employee participation events include building homes for Habitat for Humanity; running a 5K for Give Kids the World; creating and sending care packages to U.S. military service members through Operation Gratitude; and shaving heads for children with cancer for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
Other national charities on the list of 30 causes include the Make a Wish Foundation, Toys for Tots, American Red Cross, United Way and Boy Scouts of America in addition to the many local charities in each of LMG’s home cities.
