Every year, as a celebration of Turner Construction Company’s founding on May 3, volunteers from around the world roll up their sleeves and get together to participate in community service projects. By partnering with local and global organizations, Turner’s employees strive to make a difference in the communities where they live, work, learn, and grow. This company-wide day of service connects Turner's people around the globe, creates new relationship building opportunities, and reinforces the core values upon which Turner was founded: teamwork, integrity, and commitment.
On Friday, May 18, members of GBCA’s Construction Leadership Council and students from Drexel University’s Construction Management Program gave back to the community by volunteering for Philabundance, a Philadelphia-based hunger relief organization dedicated to increasing food access and ending hunger.
Over the past four years, the Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) has partnered with Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia to help build 15 new homes in the City of Philadelphia.
Last year, Local 158 carpenters dedicated their time and expertise to frame Habitat houses for the Diamond Park development, located along the 2000 block of N. 16th Street in North Philadelphia. Later this year, carpenters are expected to assist Habitat for Humanity Philadelphia in the final phase of development at Diamond Park by assisting in the construction of the final five homes.
