Rose Paving was founded 40 years ago in the suburbs of Chicago and, since that time, the community has sustained our business and helped us grow and expand. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the people of Chicago. And, that is why we are so passionate about serving the community and giving back whenever we can.
Our internal philanthropy committee researches and coordinates activities for the entire company. Below are the organizations and activities, local to the area, that our Chicago Division participates in or sponsors throughout the year:
Ronald McDonald House
Which creates, finds, and supports programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children. The Chicago Division cooks meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House at least four times per year.
The Cancer Support Center
Which provides resources, free-of-charge, to help people improve their quality of life during the cancer experience. The Chicago Division participates in the “Walk of Hope” 5K in October.
Toys For Tots
Organized by the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve, collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community. The Chicago Division hosts a Toy Drive in December.
Maria Matters Breast Cancer Charity
Which provides support and care packages to cancer patients. The Chicago Division pays for shipping the baskets.
Dr. Alan Leff Asthmatic Foundation/U of C Hospital
This Airway Biology Research Group raises funds to put towards studying various therapies and treatments for asthma. We make a monetary donation each year.
Brookfield Zoo’s Community Tree Trim
An event that brings the community together to decorate the zoo for the holiday season. Employees and families attend this event and help decorate.
K9S For Warriors
Which provides service canines to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of military service post 9/11. Each office takes a banner to their respective tradeshows. Attendees are invited to sign the banner in support. For each signature, Rose Paving donates $5 to K9s For Warriors.
Feed My Starving Children
Which is a non-profit Christian organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. Chicago-Division employees hand-pack meals specifically formulated for malnourished children and the meals are shipped to nearly 70 countries around the world.
Centre for Companies That Care launched a student mentoring initiative to ensure that 100% of participating students will graduate from high school, enter college, and gain the skills needed to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace. Through this program, Chicago Division employees serve as mentors to Chicago-area high-school students.
