Other examples of community outreach include a summer food drive at the corporate office in Irving, Texas, where employees donated money, non-perishable food and hygiene products to the Irving Cares food bank. In addition, our Hanson Aggregates Servtex Quarry collected more than 6,930 pounds of food for The Randolph Area Christian Assistance Program (RACAP). These donations went to feeding local children over the summer, the food bank’s busiest season.
Many of our plant locations also host open houses to help our neighbors understand what we do and give them an up close and personal look at our operations. One example of this type event is the annual open house at our Ocean Concrete operations on Granville Island in Vancouver, British Columbia, which attracts thousands of local residents every year. Other locations also provide tours and host community events on a regular basis.
From charitable giving and events to open houses and beyond, Lehigh Hanson encourages all of our locations to actively engage the local community and positively contribute to its growth and success.
