01 May HANDS ON NASHVILLE RECOGNIZES CRAIN FOR CORPORATE VOLUNTEERISM
Crain Construction was one of three finalists in the corporate volunteerism category, which “pays tribute to businesses that have robust employee volunteer programs with high levels of participation and impact.”
“Crain’s ability to bring dollars, in-kind donations, and special trades skills to our projects allow us to stretch our budgets to do more per home, and serve more homeowners,” said Kaitlin Dastugue, executive director of Rebuilding Together Nashville, who nominated Crain Construction for the award. “Everyone on the Crain team shares immense kindness and compassion with our homeowners– making them feel seen, worthy, and empowered. Each volunteer truly brings all of their hard and soft skills to the work site to improve the homes and lives of households in need in our community.”
Giving back to community is a year-round commitment at Crain Construction. Employee volunteers have partnered with Rebuilding Together Nashville, Second Harvest, American Heart Association, The Bridge and others. Volunteer projects have ranged from serving meals to the food insecure, hosting an annual Rib Off and making critical repairs on homes so seniors can age in place.
“We’re humbled by this honor,” said Michael Rankin, president/CEO of Crain Construction. “Our company roots were planted in Nashville in 1933, and we have been committed to improving our home place ever since. We do this by building structures and relationships that last, by always doing the right thing, and by giving back to our community.”
More than 600 people attended the April 30 awards luncheon recognizing Middle Tennessee volunteers who give their time and talents to improve the community. The event is held in partnership with the family of Mary Catherine Strobel, a community volunteer best remembered and honored for her tireless, joyful commitment to those in need.
