Throughout the 53-year history of Madison Concrete Construction, our ownership, the Dolente family, has generously supported many local organizations and charities. Through both The Dolente Foundation and the donation of labor, materials and equipment, the Dolente family has always endeavored to give back to the community, in addition to stressing the importance of family. This has always resonated with me throughout my career with Madison. In 2022 alone, their support has extended to such varied entities including:
Cornerstone Christian Academy – This faith-based school in southwest Philadelphia has been inspiring hope in children since 1988.
