For nearly a century, ROEL Construction Co. has been involved in community service throughout San Diego. As the company has expanded over the years, so has its philanthropy, such that nearly all 300 ROEL employees and their families are active in the neighborhoods in which they live, work and play. The company is truly grateful to have the opportunity to enhance and support the community by delivering more than 90 years of construction expertise as well as through the unique talents and compassionate hearts of individuals throughout the company. At ROEL, community service is the tangible result of its motto, "Spirit of an American Family."
ROEL recognizes that its success is only possible in an environment where the company as a whole cares for the communities it serves. ROEL gives its time, talent and treasure to many causes including social, charitable and civic causes. The company's outreach extends beyond organized groups and has been known to give to people who have fallen upon hard times and need help to get back on track. It is for these reasons that ROEL gives and, more importantly, to reassure all of the ROEL "family" of employees that its existence is about more than just profits.
Where to give is one of the hardest choices the company faces. Clearly, there are more worthy causes than there are available resources. ROEL family members have decided to focus their attention on organizations and causes that personally touch an employee or a client, and where they feel they can do the most good.
ROEL encourages all of its employees to participate in community service, as community service is one of the 10 ROEL Ideals and also supports the company motto. As a reward, the company gives each person that participates in a community outreach effort a specially engraved, pewter "Spirit" block. The goal is for employees to take pride in building their collection of Spirit blocks while helping support the needs of others throughout the community.
So far this year, ROEL employees have been actively supporting many local nonprofits including the United Cerebral Palsy, Rady Children's Hospital, The Salvation Army, The Boy Scouts of America, Red Cross and The American Cancer Society, to name a few. In addition, ROEL has raised awareness of charities by participating and sponsoring the MS Walk, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and The Alpine Challenge Cycling Race; gathered and donated thousands of dollars, toys and gifts for Easter, back-to-school and Christmas fundraisers.
