The Salvation Army recently received a $50,000 donation from Baker Concrete Construction, Inc., headquartered in Monroe, OH with operations throughout North America and the Caribbean. This is the sixth year that Baker Concrete made a significant financial contribution to support The Salvation Army. These funds will be distributed to needy families through Salvation Army facilities in 14 separate communities where Baker Concrete has local offices or project sites.
“It is our privilege to support the mission and work of The Salvation Army,” stated Mike Schneider, Baker’s Sr. VP and Chief People Officer. “Baker’s Mission Statement challenges Baker co-workers to give back to our communities, and our support of The Salvation Army’s programs and social services is another example of donating our time, talent and treasure. Our co-workers do a wonderful job of committing their time and efforts to support these important causes throughout the year. To ensure that as many families are served as possible, Baker matches its co-workers’ contributions to provide additional funding for the Salvation Army programs.”
Baker Concrete’s financial contribution will be shared among fourteen (14) Salvation Army communities, in cities located in Ohio, Washington DC, Florida, South Carolina, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Tennessee and Texas. The funds will be used to provide various forms of emergency and financial assistance to the neediest members in each of those communities.
