“Building a Better Community is our mission and a core value of Geneva Rock,” said Charlie Keller, Area Manager of Logistics at Geneva Rock. “Everything we do every day is about improving our communities.”
In total, Geneva Rock donated 32 cubic yards of concrete used for the basement foundation.
Several employees were involved in the hour-and-a-half pour, ranging from three mixer truck drivers to a batch plant operator and dispatchers.
“The generosity of Geneva Rock constantly impresses me,” Charlie said. “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.”
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. Our focus is and always will be on Building a Better Community.
In part, due to the partnership between Geneva Rock and Habitat for Humanity of Northern Utah, the Haro family was able to move into their new home just before Christmas.
Danika and Everardo Haro are the parents of three children. They are recent immigrants that went to great lengths in order to obtain U.S. citizenship. Not only are they learning to navigate a new country, both Danika and Everardo are profoundly deaf, and their oldest son has autism and is non-verbal.
Having a home that is both safe and secure was a long-time goal of the Haro family. This home will now give them peace of mind while setting down roots for their children. It will allow them to have structure and routine, helping them feel secure and safe in addition to having the freedom to play.
Habitat for Humanity of Northern Utah had always intended to complete the house before Christmas, but several setbacks delayed the construction process along the way. However, after jumping through many hoops with support from generous sponsors, as well as catching a few lucky breaks, the Haro family was able to move just in time for the holidays.
