The dedication that Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) chapters and members put towards improving their communities and helping those in need has always been a proud piece of the association. Throughout 2012, hundreds of organizations and individuals benefited from the outpouring compassion of the projects completed, and a few were selected to be highlighted in the annual ABC Cares video.

In a two part video, 11 companies and members were honored for their commitment to community giving and for finding creative ways to get involved. The videos were played at the 23rd annual Excellence in Construction (EIC) Awards on Feb. 20 in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. 

If your company or chapter has completed a community service project and would like to be recognized on the ABC Cares Community Outreach blog and have the opportunity to be featured in Construction Executive’s Community Spotlight or the 2013 ABC Cares video which will be played at the 2014 EIC awards, email Donna Puglisi at Puglisi@abc.org with a description of your project along with pictures or video. 

Whether small or large, these ABC Cares projects have a lasting impact and highlight the importance of taking time to help others.
