Serving the Community for More Than 15 Years

We pride ourselves on taking time to give back to the communities in which we work. During 2006 and 2007, we donated community service time to Hilltop Community Resources, in Grand Junction. Our projects for Hilltop included working to improve the fresh water delivery and sewage disposal systems at the Hilltop-funded Kiwanis Camp, located on the Grand Mesa National Forest, Mesa County, Colorado.

In 2007 and 2008, we donated time and money to Holy Family Catholic School, in Grand Junction. We purchased and assembled playground equipment including a jungle gym for the preschool play yard and a basketball hoop for the grade school yard.

Each Thanksgiving, we donate a complete meal to a local needy family. Each employee brings in a different dish to contribute.

At the corporate level we encourage employee giving by matching four hours of paid time per month per employee to Community services as chosen by the employee.
