We believe very strongly in giving back to the communities in which our employees live and work. LoJac had the distinct opportunity to participate in the hit ABC TV series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition each time the show has visited Middle Tennessee. First in August 2006, when the design team came to the Hawkins family. Amy Hawkins was at home with her two boys when a tornado struck, and she used her body to protect the children from the crumbling house. In this heroic act, Amy became paralyzed and the family lost everything to the storm. We were able to help rebuild the Hawkinses’ home and help bring relief into their life. LoJac again helped in September 2010 to build a preschool for Lighthouse Christian School after it was destroyed in the historic flooding of May 2010. At the end of the week-long build, a 6,500-square-foot, state-of-the-art preschool was completed and saved the school from closing its doors for good.
