Geneva Rock has always been committed to Building a Better Community. To that end, in collaboration with the Utah Ready-Mixed Concrete Association (URMCA), Geneva Rock recently donated $10,000 of concrete to Habitat for Humanity, which was used to build a new home for the Haro family in Brigham City, Utah.
The Haros are recent immigrants who went to great lengths to obtain U.S. citizenship. Parents Danika and Everardo have three children, one of whom has autism and is non-verbal. Both Danika and Everardo are deaf. With these special considerations, having a home that is both safe and secure has been a long-time family goal.
This home gives them peace of mind while setting down roots for their children. It gives them structure and routine, helping them feel secure and safe, in addition to having the freedom to play.
Habitat for Humanity of Northern Utah had intended to complete the house before Christmas, but setbacks delayed construction. However, after jumping through hoops with support from generous sponsors, as well as catching a few breaks, the Haro family was able to move just in time for the holidays.
Several Geneva Rock employees contributed to the concrete pour, including three mixer truck drivers, a batch plant operator, and multiple dispatchers. In total, Geneva Rock donated 32 cubic yards of concrete used for the basement foundation.
“The generosity of Geneva Rock constantly impresses me,” says Terrence Savage, Vice President of Concrete at Geneva Rock. “It’s shown in important projects such as this. One reason we have a great reputation in our community is because of our willingness to give back. Everything we do every day is about improving our communities.”
Geneva Rock owes much of its heritage to the communities of Utah and takes opportunities to return the favor to residents throughout the state each year through donations of materials, time, and money.
