At a corporate level, we have a number of strategic partners and programs.
We began a national partnership with Habitat for Humanity in 2010. Each year we alternate support between a home in Atlanta, GA and a state where there is a large constituency of our businesses to build a home for a family. Every build that we participate in involves our products, materials and the support of our people through hundreds of volunteer hours each year.
This program for elementary students teaches about the rocks that make up our world as well as conservation and safety. Students learn about the rock cycle, different types of rocks and are introduced to aggregate mining. The program aligns to school state standards for grades three to five and is designed to support teaching the science curriculum through active learning modules to keep students engaged.
In 2004, we established a partnership with the Wildlife Habitat Council, a conservation organization that helps corporations and other groups to establish sites on their lands to preserve and enhance biodiversity. We own and maintain 18 certified wildlife habitats, covering more than 3,044 acres of land across nine US states and Canada.
