LBL was recently honored alongside nearly 200 other Minnesota companies as part of the Minnesota Keystone Program. This program supports and recognizes companies who give at least 2 percent of their annual pre-tax income back to the community.

In 1976, 23 Minnesota companies created this program (originally known as "The 5% Club") to recognize and encourage charitable giving in the state. The commitment of Minnesota Keystone participants continues to serve as an example to other businesses, both here and around the globe, and to sustain Minnesota's spirit of generosity and sense of community.

LBL has always been actively involved in the community. Our outreach includes volunteer time, pro bono work and developing new business opportunities. For years, the community has given us its trust and business. We believe the best way to say thanks is to share our knowledge and expertise to help create prosperity for all.
