Celebrating 30 Years With 30 Acts of Kindness

VCC has given more than $2 million to charities across the country since being founded in Little Rock, Ark., in 1987. The company’s more than 340 employees share a commitment to a family-oriented culture and to building world-class facilities, but it’s their dedication to service that they feel truly sets them apart.

Crowdsourcing a Charitable Beneficiary

In March, Faith Technologies, Menasha, Wis., gave $5,000 to the Boys & Girls Club with a little help from its social media community. Customers, partners and employees from across the country voted in an online poll to determine which of the four nonprofit organizations designated by Faith Technologies’ Giving Committee would receive the donation. The Boys and Girls Club won with 46 percent of the votes, followed by the American Heart Association with 35 percent of the votes; the remaining votes went to Earth Share and Junior Achievement.

7,300 Wishes and Counting

When Mike Ryan, president of LandTek Group, Amityville, N.Y., hired Marty Lyons as his director of sales and marketing in 2000, he got more than a former All-American defensive football player for the University of Alabama and No. 1 draft choice for the New York Jets. He got an award-winning philanthropist who has been channeling his desire to help terminally ill children since 1982 by granting wishes through the Marty Lyons Foundation.

A Tip of the 'HAT'

When Michelle Jones, an instrumentation engineer with Hargrove Engineers + Constructors, Mobile, Ala., heard about an 11 year-old girl named Emma Pablo with limited mobility due to cerebral palsy, she was inspired to help—and that inspiration quickly spread throughout the company. 

With President and CEO Ralph Hargrove’s blessing, Jones reached out to fellow engineers and designers who would share her vision for building something that would enrich Emma’s life and give her access to the tools she needed to learn to move around in space and control her environment.

Heartfelt Giving at Its Finest

As a member of the Jacksonville Beach, Fla., community for the past 11 years, FaverGray does more than build award-winning student housing, apartment, senior living and hospitality projects. It gives back to local nonprofits in a heartfelt way—one of the reasons the company has earned Associated Builders and Contractors’ Accredited Quality Contractor designation. 

Pave It Forward

In September, The PHILLIPS School in Annandale, Va., debuted $150,000 worth of repairs to its entrance, bus lanes and sidewalks as a result of the Heavy Construction Contractors Association’s annual “Pave It Forward!” charitable giving program.

Fighting Hunger One Can at a Time

In the past five years, Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG), a public accounting firm with more than 2,000 employees in 12 states, has donated nearly 3.8 million pounds of food to hunger relief organizations through its Count the Cans initiative. This year alone, the firm donated 593,464 pounds of food and 12,020 pounds of pet food. 

Greater Michigan Construction Academy Expands Training as Nation’s First ACCET-Accredited Vocational Program

The ABC-affiliated Greater Michigan Construction Academy has been able to expand its reach since being accredited as an institution of higher education by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training in April 2015. GMCA is the first vocational school in the country to achieve this designation.

Extreme Makeover: Landscape Edition

This summer, Ruppert Landscape infused the energizing, positive impact of plants and flowers into The Children’s Homein Catonsville, Md., in partnership with the ABC2 News-WMAR Baltimore “Built Upon a Dream” community service project.
