Lippert Components, Inc. announced its seRV With Purpose platform, a comprehensive platform that offers a guideline for those looking for meaningful experiences that impact locations they visit.
The seRV will offer volunteering opportunities in RV destinations all over the United States, organized by Lippert seRV Ambassador families who have pledged to host ten events yearly, as per the News & Insights report of the RV Industry Association.
In the past few years, Lippert was privileged to have had the immense privilege of running this program with two families that have been serving with sincere hearts, The Conlons from Paws For Love and Nickersons of Finding Our Someday.
Michilah Grimes, Director of Corporate and Community Impact at Lippert, said that at last year’s Getaway, the team was lucky enough to have genuinely impactful discussions with attendees who expressed a desire to find ways to help communities they visited when they travel.
The experience inspired them to think of ways to aid the adventuring with the purpose movement. They are happy to see the remarkable impact that seRV With Purpose has on people’s lives across the country.
Alongside the chance to be part of seRV Ambassadors exploring with intention, the platform will also provide an extensive list of vetted non-profits, ideal for those drawn to a purpose-driven journey.
The list of non-profits that have been vetted will answer questions such as “Do we need to call head?”, “Is there RV parking available on-site?”, “Are children able to volunteer at this location?”
The platform is scheduled to launch in 2023. The seRV platform was first revealed during Lippert’s 2022 Getaway, a six-day event for Lippert’s consumer-focused group called the “Lippert Scouts.” Attendees were involved in various events at the resort, including sessions on technology, lifestyle, workshops, shopping, and even nightly entertainment.
To start the seRV launch, Getaway attendees and Lippert team members participated in two volunteer events that went well. The first event saw around 150 people pack 1200 backpacks of basic items, later provided to the Boys & Girls Club of the Chattahoochee Valley.
The bags contained ten essential items donated to Club families during the annual Thanksgiving dinner, at which families are invited to the Club and served food. This year is the first time they will be hosting the tradition following the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.
The second event brought about 100 RVers and Lippert team members away from the Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park in Pine Mountain, GA.
From simple trail clearing and cleaning through the removal of large branches, and the construction of a water bar in areas where the rising waters had caused erosion of trails, the volunteers worked to revive the park’s trail network.
Lippert president and chief executive Jason Lippert said social responsibility was one of our main goals over the past several years. Since 2017, Lippert employees and their families have collected more than 600,000 hours of voluntary work that has forever changed many lives.
He said if one business can have such an impact, consider the changes that all RV enthusiasts could make.
