Rose Paving’s 2018 Holiday Giving
Meet the organizations we champion this holiday season and beyond.
A key component of Rose Paving culture is to contribute to our communities and leave places better than when we found them. Throughout the year, Rose Paving employees all over the continent get together to carry out this mission, whether it’s by organizing donation drives in the office, handing out water at charity runs or participating in building projects for communities in need. This holiday season, Rose Paving will continue this legacy by making donations to charitable organizations on behalf of our clients and employees.
“While the holidays are a time for giving, we wanted our corporate gifts to go further and benefit some incredible organizations,” said COO Chris Tanner. Instead of buying gifts, Rose Paving prompts clients and employees to select a cause to support and will make a donation in their name to that organization.
Meet the organizations that the Rose Paving community is honored to support this holiday season and beyond.
Maria Matters Breast Cancer Charity
Maria Matters is named for Maria Madden, who lost her battle to breast cancer very early in life. Madden packed gift baskets full of items that would make patients feel more comfortable while going through chemotherapy. Donations go toward providing baskets for patients going through treatments and the foundation’s other initiatives.
