Flatiron Teams Spread Cheer
“The kids in this county will surely be the winners with these gracious donations by this company!”
That’s Dunn County Emergency Services Deputy Fire Chief Rodney Eason, talking about how Flatiron made it an unforgettable holiday for underserved families in his stretch of central North Carolina after the I-95 project team saw the fire department’s call for Toys for Tots donations and began collecting gifts.
Every holiday season, Flatiron partners with organizations around the country that make a difference for children and families. While the organizations vary, our mission remains the same: to create better communities where we build and live.
Our Flatiron-Branch Civil joint venture team also donated food to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina.
Across the country, our teams in Southern California teamed up with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) and Ronald McDonald House of San Diego (RMH) on a holiday toy drive. This is a well-loved, annual tradition that brings extra joy to our team members.
As Senior Project Office Manager Heather McColl shared, “Some of our team members have utilized the services of RMDH or had children receive treatments at Rady’s Children’s (Connected to RMHD). Being able to give back to an organization that has personally helped our family during a difficult time is fulfilling and a way to show the support was appreciated.”
Each year in Colorado our teams adopt a few families in the Adams 14 School District, one of the most underserved in the state. We’re able to provide gifts to many who might not have Christmas if not for our team. “It gives us a lot of joy to be able to reach out to the communities around us,” says Nicole Fehr, Flatiron superintendent. Nicole has been the main leader behind the organization of this annual gift drive at Flatiron and shares that it makes it her favorite time of the year.
In Northern California our US-50 project team organized a toy drive for Shriners Children’s. Flatiron employees had a wonderful time gathering gifts for the kids over the last few weeks and delivering bundles of holiday joy to the hospital this season.
At Flatiron we believe in giving back and we’re fortunate to partner with these wonderful organizations around the holidays to spread the cheer. Happy Holidays to all of our teams and partners!
