Case Study: Alberici Constructors, Ltd.
Our friends from Alberici Constructors, Ltd., a southern Ontario-based industrial contractor that operates throughout Canada, are the perfect example of what can happen when you think outside the box to help families in need. Recently, Alberici were looking for a way to give back to their local community. They wanted to make a difference and it didn’t take long for them to find the perfect fit - Habitat for Humanity Halton-Mississauga (HFHHM). In support of HFHHM, Alberici set their fundraising goal at $20,000 and started the process by forming a fundraising committee, giving their project a name (Let’s Raise the Roof for Habitat) and brainstorming ideas for ways to reach their goal. With a Silent Auction being at the top of their list, they turned to their suppliers, asking each for a cash or product donation. Some of the extra items received were a nail gun (donated back to Habitat by the winning bidder) and 15 gallons of paint to be used on the build site. Alberici’s fundraiser also included the following money makers: auctioning off 2 vacation days, a Jeans Day every Wednesday, a bake sale every day for a full week, and a garage sale. Every employee in the company was involved, each contributing substantially to the success of the fundraising effort. But Alberici didn’t stop there! They put their construction skills to great use and joined Habitat for a build day at the Plains Road build site. In the end, the final amount raised was $21,195, exceeding their initial goal of $20,000!
