Community Outreach

We take our public-service mission to heart.

 

LMI recognizes that our corporate responsibility encompasses even more than maintaining deep integrity in our dealings with clients or developing sustainable approaches that preserve the environment.

Fundamentally, LMI’s mission has always been about public service. We value our role in improving the lives of people across the globe, and that plays out far beyond our client’s project sites. LMI actively gives back to the communities in which we work and live in many ways—as an organization and as individuals.

From blood drives for the American Red Cross to holiday gifts for children in local foster care to Doctors Without Borders, LMI’s commitment to community outreach manifests itself in many ways. Some of the larger programs our company supports include the following:

Children’s Hospital

Every holiday season since 1989, LMI employees have held a potluck luncheon to raise money for Children’s Hospital. Employees bring their favorite dishes and participants pay to dine. The event has raised tens of thousands of dollars over the past two decades.

Wounded Warriors

In recognition of the invaluable service our veterans have given to our nation, and the sacrifices that some have made in the line of service, LMI actively seeks to employ U.S. military veterans who are wounded or injured in the War on Terror.

Fallen Heroes Project

LMI is an official corporate supporter of Seattle portrait artist Michael Reagan’s Fallen Heroes Project. Reagan, a Vietnam veteran, draws personalized portraits of the fallen, working with the families to learn about the individual’s personality. He provides these portraits to the families free of charge. To date, Reagan has completed more than 2,000 of these portraits in his project, which has garnered considerable praise and has been featured by major media outlets, including ABC, CNN, and NPR.

Wreaths Across America

LMI participates in “Wreaths Across America,” a program to promote veterans remembrance. In 2009, the LMI Charity Committee purchased 66 wreaths to lay on the graves of American war veterans at the Alexandria National Cemetery.
