Minneapolis, Minn. – (Aug 31, 2021) – Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP), a leading construction management firm and general contractor in the U.S., today announced a company-wide “Day of Giving” program in which team members will give back to their local communities in the month of September. Employees will receive paid time off to spend a portion of their workday donating their time, talents and treasure to local organizations in the communities where they live and work.
“For 75 years, our organization has built and maintained strong relationships in the communities where we operate,” said Jeff Hansen, CEO. “Giving back to our communities reflects our core values and company culture and is the cornerstone of the legacy we have built together. This year we will celebrate that legacy through focused giving and community service across our many regions and offices.”
AP has historically provided donations and service in the communities it operates, supporting at-risk children and adults, military veterans, disaster relief and rebuilding, local food banks, hospitals and health organizations, schools, and other nonprofits and charitable foundations. The Day of Giving builds on those relationships and provides a more focused effort to give back in a meaningful way.
“We’re proud of our growth and longevity in the industry and the positive impact we’ve made on the clients and communities we serve,” said Hansen. “The Day of Giving brings our people together to celebrate our successes while giving back and engaging with those in need of support in our local communities.”
AP’s regional offices will select local charities and causes that have special meaning for their employees, including Feed My Starving Children and AZCEND Food Bank in Arizona, Transplants for Children and Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center in Texas, and Hearts and Hammers and Second Harvest Heartland in Minnesota. Locations are also organizing fundraisers and blood drives, collecting and donating food and clothing, providing supplies to local schools, participating in park clean-ups and many other activities.
