Giving back to the community it has been a part of for 25 years, is important to LG. LG actively participates in activities benefiting residents of Bergen County and the State of New Jersey. Below are highlights of some of LG’s community involvement activities.
To further strengthen the 25-year partnership with the local community, LG is investing more than $2 million to create a Science and Environmental Learning Center in the new headquarters building, where local school children will be able to learn about technology and sustainable living. LG shared initial plans for the learning center with the community during the approval phase of the project and will be reaching out to the local community for ideas and feedback on the learning center as plans for the building move forward.
