We support local communities by volunteering on many levels in the areas where we work. Our southern California offices are involved with many local charities, which are especially active during the holiday season. Through the generosity of employees, many local families receive meals and toys during this special time of the year. In addition, we work with local law enforcement agencies to host an annual cook-out to honor officers and thank them for their contribution to keeping the community safe. Some recent initiatives have included work with the Loma Linda Ronald McDonald House, CANstruction LA, the West Coast Sports Medicine Foundation and more.
A key aspect of our community work is helping show local DBE- and MWESB-certified contractors learn how they can best position themselves to work on Skanska projects throughout the region. We are constantly conducting workshops and outreach events to help these companies win work and grow their businesses. Skanska knows sustainability isn’t just about buildings. Sustainability means a thriving local economy, made up of growing community-owned businesses.
