Natural disasters seem to be happening more often across the country. From the fires on the west coast and the hurricanes slamming the south east to the barrage of snowstorms we can expect as winter approaches, there will certainly be plenty of need for crews to step in to bring our lives back to normalcy. Thankfully, we have people like you that are designing and building infrastructure and buildings for the future that keep the death toll down compared to when disaster struck past.
This month we have the Barthet Law firm to help you make sure the contracts are your projects have the proper provisions when a natural disaster strikes. We address the challenges employers have had with employees evacuating and not returning to work on time and
express our deep appreciation for our contractors and tradesmen who keep us up and running when emergency situations strike. We would not be rebuilding our homes and businesses without you! We recognize your dedication to do so.
Thanks to innovations in building structures designed to withstand natural disasters, there are fewer fatalities during these emergencies than the number of injuries and fatalities seen in an average week among those responsible for ensuring our buildings and homes are ready to withstand a disaster. Show your support for these dedicated men and women in the construction industry by supporting Construction Angels who are the first responders for these families during the loss of a loved one serving in our industry. We are always here if we can help you with resources for your career and businesses or just need encouragement. Don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Construction Angels is a South Florida based, non-profit organization created to facilitate access to financial services for immediate surviving family members of a construction worker who has lost their life while working on a jobsite.
Construction Angels’ main objective is to help support “one of our own” and assist families in picking up the pieces. Financial assistance shall be in the form of providing limited fund(s) for surviving children and/or immediate financial assistance for a surviving spouse. Your generosity is vital to the success and future of our charity, and we are grateful for your gift. Construction Angels recognizes individual, corporate, foundation and government donors at every giving level.
If you wish to remain anonymous, they will honor those wishes. However, they would enjoy recognizing you as one of their contributors by helping Construction Angels succeed at its mission. It is their hope that recognition of one’s gift may inspire generosity in others.
