An Unwavering Commitment to Community

Giving a Voice to Neglected Children

This summer, Miami-based Plaza Construction teed up $150,000 for the Voices for Children Foundation at its ninth annual golf invitational at La Gorce Country Club. 

Answering the Call for Help

An old cell phone can be turned into free minutes for soldiers to call home. That’s the message the Arizona Builders Alliance sent to its members earlier this year, and they responded by collecting 1,015 phones—equivalent to 507 hours (30,450 minutes) of calling time for overseas military members. 

Showcasing Cars for a Cause

An integral part of the community service culture at Choate Construction is helping the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation get closer to finding a cure for the disease, one step at a time. This year, Choate’s annual “Cars & ’Q for a Cause” event raised a record-breaking $175,985 to contribute to the CF Foundation. 

Making a Teen’s Treehouse Wish Come True

The ABC Greater Michigan Chapter granted a 15-year-old young man’s wish for a treehouse at its 30th annual fundraiser, which brought in $30,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Building a Culture of Caring

Creating a culture that helps a company retain employees, win work and leave a positive impression on the community can be a difficult challenge. For The Beck Group, based in Dallas, success has come from a culture of caring that permeates all areas of the business. 

Training Apprentices to Give Back

At the Northern California Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC), training the workforce doesn’t just mean classroom learning and on-the-job instruction—it means diving into the community to teach apprentices the importance of giving back.

Changing the Face of Men's Health

Over the course of 30 days, members of the Pennsylvania construction industry committed to giving back to their communities one moustache at a time by supporting the Movember Foundation. The organization has raised more than $550 million to date and funded more than 800 programs in 21 countries to help save and improve the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.

Putting Their Own Spin on Giving Back

Community service can come in many different forms: running a 5K, serving food to the homeless or collecting school supplies for kids in need. Members of two chapters of Associated Builders and Contractors put their own spin on charity fundraising by hosting bowling tournaments.
