STAKER PARSON COMPANIES WINS COMMUNITY RELATIONS AWARD
February 12, 2018
Staker Parson Companies won a Silver Excellence in Community Relations Award from the National Stone Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA).
The NSSGA’s community relations program began in 1989. The purpose of the program is to both encourage and recognize outstanding community relations amongst the aggregate industry.
“Community relations is a very important aspect of our business,” Cami Dellamore, Staker Parson Companies Marketing Coordinator said. “We strive to be good neighbors to everyone in our community and do our best to make the areas we live and work in a better place.”
A big part of Staker Parson Companies’ community relations efforts are spent helping children. Each year, the company visits many local schools in order to educate thousands of students about mining and aggregate production with their Rocks Build Our World program, which also coincides with the fourth grade geology science curriculum. They also regularly attend or host STEM fairs. In addition, the company frequently donates the use of their giant sandbox for children to play in at various community events.
“We strive to be the Preferred Source, but what better way to show how we sustain and help build our communities than by sharing it with the next generation,” Tyler Petersen, Staker Parson Companies Driver Mentor said. “Not only does Rocks Build Our World give us that opportunity, but the kids have fun and learn at the same time. The sandbox is just another fun way to get out into the community. We are a family of families and we all help build our communities. The sandbox helps bring everyone together. I mean who doesn’t want to go play in a giant sandbox?”
Staker Parson Companies is committed to community service and corporate responsibility. The company’s dedicated employees often volunteer their time to assist others during community events, service projects, donations and more. Staker Parson Companies promotes safety not only within the company, but within the community.
