Commitment to Community
Some call it being a good corporate citizen. At HarenLaughlin, we call it an unyielding commitment to the community where we live and work. We partner with philanthropic organizations that build strong families, encourage children, and foster education.
Recent Community Commitments
Heart to Heart International
During our company's Day of Service, a team from HarenLaughlin worked with Heart to Heart International to prepare over 600 emergency health kits, which are shipped to disaster sites all over the world. These kits support both international and domestic disaster relief efforts including those close to home in areas like Reading, Kansas and Joplin, Missouri.
Hope Faith Ministries
The HarenLaughlin team used our construction expertise to secure materials and provide labor for renovations to transitional housing facilities. Our team is proud to serve our community, especially serving those who find themselves in situations of extraordinary need.
Habitat for Humanity – Community Build
HarenLaughlin employees contributed over 240 hours to a Habitat for Humanity home build. Our team committed both workday and personal leisure time to Habitat.
"The best part of our build day was knowing that we were making a difference in the lives of a Kansas City family."
— Danny Wastler, Director of Business Development & Marketing
Granting five wishes for critically ill children was the objective of a Luau Celebration sponsored by HarenLaughlin Construction and hosted at Briarcliff Village. Contributing personal time, talent and barbeque expertise, HarenLaughlin employees supported these fund raising efforts resulting in the potential to grant not only five wishes, but six additional wishes for children.
The Builders Association – Scholarship Foundation
Each year we sponsor The Builders' Association Invitational Golf Tournament. This function is the sole funding source for the organization's Scholarship Foundation. By participating, we contribute to the next generation of construction industry professionals, funding 15 scholarships annually.
"In supporting the Builder's Association Scholarship Foundation, we assist students in securing quality education. These students are the future of our industry."
— Wells Haren, President
Catholic Charities Foundation of Northeast Kansas
Lifting up those who are challenged by poverty of mind, body and spirit is the objective of Catholic Charities. The annual Golf Classic procures critical funding to provide support to families in our community. As a long-time sponsor of this event, HarenLaughlin is deeply rooted in supporting the organizations' mission.
