A HUGE thank you to Barton Malow Company & United E&C Inc. for their acts of service with Habitat Monroe.
Habitat Monroe was lucky to have employees from Barton Malow Company and United E&C Inc. volunteer at our Habitat build site on June 1st and 17th. Team leader Sierra Duty reached out to us to schedule Team Habitat days for her crew, and we were happy to oblige. A Team Habitat Day allows volunteers to double their impact, by donating their time and providing a financial contribution to Habitat’s cause!
Barton Malow Company is well known for giving back, as they annually donate 5% of their earnings to local and national nonprofit organizations. Additionally, the Barton Malow Foundation matches their team members’ charitable giving, ‘dollar for dollar’, up to $2,000 per person, per year.
Barton Malow believes that giving back to their community improves the lives of many, generates support for the company’s overall mission, and builds genuine relationships between employees.
“Barton Malow’s core purpose is Building with American Purpose: People, Projects, and Communities. For us, volunteering is about living those values. Our team members are encouraged and empowered to “pay it forward” through service and donations.”
“When we volunteer, we genuinely strive to build up the communities where we live, work, and play. That is our number one goal and that is why we provide paid volunteer time during our *annual Community Week, as well as an additional 12 hours of volunteer time off for each of our team members to use throughout the year.”
“ In addition to the positive impact we have in the communities we serve, we believe that our team members benefit from the experience of spending quality time with each other. It strengthens leadership outside of the office and enriches members with a great sense of camaraderie and purpose. When we volunteer together, it reinforces our culture and promotes a sense of belonging and family within our organization”.
During the first week of August, The Barton Malow Foundation coordinates an annual Community Week, which provides a variety of volunteer opportunities for team members on company time. The Community Week was incredibly successful despite the coronavirus pandemic, including more than 650 volunteers from 12 states and 30 different cities. Check out their 2020 Community Week video to learn more.
What an amazing mission to uphold! We are so grateful for companies like Barton Malow’s dedication to their community.
The volunteer crew that came out to the build site are part of a volunteer construction team known as the Midwest Power Constructors (MPC). MPC is a joint venture between Barton Malow Company and United E&C Inc. Those who volunteered on our build site work for both companies.
The Barton Malow Family of Companies is multifaceted, with four entities, and five partner firms across North America. It has 15 offices and over 2,200 team members, with headquarters located in Southfield, MI. This 100% employee-owned enterprise is on a mission to transform the construction industry through innovation and increased efficiencies in the building process. Barton Malow Company is aligned with the Barton Malow Foundation, which was designed 67 years ago to “help build up our people, projects, and communities through charitable giving and volunteerism in the communities where we live, work, and play”.
The MPC volunteer construction teams from Barton Malow Company and United E&C Inc. were excited for their Team Habitat days, and we are so grateful to have had them on board. Habitat Monroe would like to thank Sierra Duty, Tom Garza, Brian Miller, Kyle Lash, Tom Baehr, Tim Beale, Steve Shellman, Scott Toboy, Lee Rogers, Brian Brow, Tim Tokarz, Tyler Shovein, and Geoff Szabelski for volunteering time with us.
