Letter From The CEO & Founder
On behalf of the Construction Angels charity and our entire construction industry, we appreciate you taking the time to better familiarize yourself with WHY our charity exists. There are approximately 13 construction workers who suffer a fatality each day in the United States, which is 4,745 workers per year out of roughly 222 working days, which averages out to a construction worker killed almost every 2 hours on the jobsite. All of these workers are in dangerous surroundings and understand that is part of their job. Many of them have children and a spouse, and some are older than others and have put their years in with the support of their family’s wellbeing. These blue-collar workers are for the most part, the main breadwinners for the family who work paycheck to paycheck, and without their spouse’s financial support many of these spouses and children are left behind with nothing but bills and emptiness. We feel that it is important for these families to feel their loved one played an important role in building our homes, office buildings, roads, etc. here in the United States.
Many people have asked me why there was never a charity before Construction Angels for our fallen construction workers, and to be honest, I didn’t know that answer myself! I am a 3rd generation of an Asphalt family from Ohio who attended the World of Asphalt tradeshow in 2009 where I met a woman collecting money for “One of our Own”.
When I asked her what that was, she said she was collecting money for a worker who was killed and left behind a wife and children. I assumed this “One of our Own” was a charity, and brought the idea back to South Florida to raise funds! After hours of research, phone calls and questioning people in the road industry, there was not a charity that was specific to our fallen construction workers like there is for fire fighters or police officers that have been killed in the line of duty, or our workers in the armed forces that risk their lives. Our theme “One of our Own” is understood by first responders and service workers for our role in family assistance and our construction communities.
We invite you to explore the following pages and discover how together, we have made a difference throughout Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan and our continuous goal of growing national. It is our hope that you will be intrigued and inspired as you read through these pages and discover meaningful ways in which we can work together to make our communities better for all of us. As a potential donor who may choose Construction Angels as their premier partner for community investing, we welcome you to join in and strengthen our message, safety and industry commitment to help our construction families when they are in need. There are many charities that help members of our community, and we would be honored if you chose ours. We look forward to hearing back from you!
Thank you for your time and support,
CEO & Founder/National Executive Director,
