DENVER – Haselden Construction team members and their families recently put on their tool belts and rolled up their sleeves for the company’s second annual work day with Extreme Community Makeover in Denver. A team of 60 Haselden Construction volunteers spent the day building fences, replacing concrete, and cleaning up yards and alleys in the Globeville neighborhood.
Community work and giving back are an important part of Haselden Construction’s business and culture. The company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program (CSR) supports causes and nonprofits across the Rocky Mountain Region that are important to its team members and customers. The program also extends beyond monetary contributions and includes community involvement that aligns with our core business of construction, where Haselden team members, as well as their families, can participate.
“Our partnership with Extreme Community Makeover is a perfect fit because it gives our team the opportunity to use their skills to help others,” said Byron Haselden, CEO and president of Haselden Construction. “Giving back to the communities we live and work in is an important part of our culture. Our team really takes pride in sharing their talents in a way that helps others with projects or tasks that would not have been able to be completed without volunteer time, materials, and resources.”
Haselden Construction joined other Extreme Community Makeover volunteers and adopted four blocks, completed nine home improvement projects, and cleaned six alleyways during the work day. Together, 95 volunteers completed 610 hours of work to aid the historic Globeville neighborhood. “It’s amazing what can get accomplished in a day when we all come together,” said Haselden.
Extreme Community Makeover started in 2008 to assist residents with home and neighborhood improvements in underserved areas of Denver. Over the past 10 years, the nonprofit has partnered with companies, schools, churches and individuals across the Denver metro area to complete nearly 2,500 projects for eight neighborhoods, including Barnum, Elyria, Globeville, La Alma/Lincoln Park, Swansea, Villa Park, West Colfax and Westwood.
“Building relationships with our partners to serve and improve the lives of those living in the communities where we work is a huge part of what we do,” said Angela Bomgaars, executive director of Extreme Community Makeover. “We see a real transformation and change take place when we build stronger communities where people make it a priority to help one another. At the end of the day, that’s what being a community is all about.”
