Time well spent
By Jim Dolente Jr., President, Madison Concrete Construction
In our May enewsletter, we encouraged friends and colleagues to help build better communities by finding opportunities to donate their time and services. Construction professionals have a valued mix of skills and the tools necessary to help nonprofit organizations maintain and add to their built assets, so they can focus on what they do best: making a positive, lasting impact on the world around us. As an example, Madison Concrete recently had the pleasure of pooling our resources with Silvi Concrete and Cement Masons and Plasterers Union Local 592 to repair the sidewalks at The Arc of Chester County in West Chester, Pa.

The Arc of Chester County has a long history of making life better for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities and their families. Through education and support, the nonprofit organization guides people with disabilities toward the most self-sufficient life possible. The ultimate goal is to help each individual reach their greatest level of independence. Services range from early learning and preschool programs to day camps and recreational activities to skills training and job-placement assistance to advocacy and so much more in between.
The Arc took to Facebook to thank us for our donation of time and materials; but really, we are the ones who are thankful to have organizations like The Arc around to help our neighbors in need. So thank you, The Arc of Chester County, for letting us help you build a better community.
At Madison Concrete, we are all about people and services and improving our built environment. Let us know how we can help you with your next project.
