RACINE, Wis. (July 21, 2011) -- Case Construction Equipment announced that Reames Concrete Company, Valdosta, Ga., is the April winner of the Case Community Challenge. This program recognizes construction contractors who support their local communities with significant community service projects.
Reames Concrete was awarded for its commitment to participate in the Second Annual week-long Freedom Build in September, organized by the Valdosta-Lowndes County Habitat for Humanity. During the project, a complete home is built in memory of those who lost their lives in the September 11 attacks and for U.S. servicemen and women currently serving at home and overseas. Reames Concrete will excavate and pour the concrete foundation and driveway for this year's Freedom Build home.
As the April winner of the Case Community Challenge, Reames Concrete will receive a $1,000 CNH parts and service gift card to use at their preferred Case dealer. The company also qualifies as a finalist for the Case Community Challenge grand prize -- one year's free use of a Case N Series loader/backhoe. In addition, Case will make a $1,000 cash donation to the Valdosta-Lowndes County Habitat for Humanity.
"We are so proud to be involved with the Valdosta-Lowndes County Habitat for Humanity chapter," said Trey Odom, vice president of Reames Concrete Company. "Stuart Mullis and the rest of the local Habitat for Humanity chapter's staff are not just our neighbors; they're our friends. We're happy to help build these houses for the people who need them, and it's easy to work with these people who are such great stewards of this money."
Each month through October 2011, the Case Community Challenge will recognize a contractor whose work on a charitable project makes a positive, lasting contribution to the local community. In November, a panel of industry leaders will select a winner from the semi-finalists, who will receive one year's free use of a new Case N Series loader/backhoe. In addition, Case will donate $5,000 to a charitable organization of the winner's choice.
