Kent Companies Texas Celebrates KIDstruction Week Success

[DALLAS, TX] – “The pledge cards just kept coming in,” shared Kent Companies Human Resources Manager Tanya Escobedo. “General Superintendent Arturo Sierra brought me a list with over thirty team members who wanted to contribute to our campaign. It was awesome to watch this campaign take on a life of its own.” Kent Companies participated in KIDstruction Week, a construction industry initiative supporting Children’s Health of Dallas. Both field and office personnel in Dallas quickly rallied around the fundraising campaign.

Kent Companies Project Manager Melissa Kersh stepped up as the KIDstruction Week Foreman for the spring campaign. She shared, “As leaders in the concrete construction industry, Kent Companies builds both multi-family and commercial properties that provide space for the Dallas/Fort Worth community to grow.” She continued, “As we build for a growing community, it makes perfect sense for us to support Children’s Health because they serve so many families across the region.”

Kersh shared the results of Kent Companies’ KIDstruction campaign, “Over sixty Kent Companies Texas employees contributed to our KIDstruction campaign. We exceeded our goal by more than 100%, and a Kent Companies corporate match and sponsorship amplified the impact of our gifts.”

Angel Alvarez, Kent Companies Vice President of Multi-Family Operations, shared, “Our team knew that Children’s Health provided treatment for children of our very own employees. We rallied around this cause quickly because we’re more than a team; we’re a family.”  Alvarez continued, “We work hard every day to make things happen for our customers. It’s a great day when we can make a difference in the community too.”
