DENVER – Last weekend approximately 130 Haselden Construction team members, their families, and students from the Colorado State University Construction Management Cares ROTC program, joined Extreme Community Makeover in Swansea — a low-income area of East Denver — to work on improvement projects throughout the neighborhood. The Haselden/CSU CM Cares group had 12 teams that worked on 11 houses and one business. Projects included yard clean-up, trash removal, painting, and fence repairs.
Haselden was part of a larger effort that the Extreme Community Makeover had organized for the day. In total, nine organizations came together to work on the neighborhood. “It’s great to see so many people come out for the community,” said Haselden Director of Corporate Marketing Tracy Mathieu. “When we all come together like this, we get an incredible amount accomplished in just one day.” Tracy was one of Haselden’s team leaders and organized Haselden’s involvement in the event. “Giving back to the communities we live and work in is something all of us at Haselden strongly believe in. Extreme Community Makeover is definitely something we’ll do again.”
Haselden Construction was founded in Colorado in 1973 and delivers sustainable projects throughout the Western United States.
