In The Community
Philanthropy is part of the LEMCO culture. We share our riches in the local community whenever we can; whether it is a donation, sponsorship or needs drive. We support construction industry events, community sponsorships and several charitable organizations on a yearly basis.
Here are a few highlights from some of our recent activities:
LEMCO Feeds the Homeless
LEMCO has donated to the Union Gospel Mission to help feed the needy during the Holiday seasons. LEMCO continues to support this local organization that is a shelter serving the homeless men and women in Dallas, Texas and its surrounding areas. The Union Gospel Mission seeks to meet the physical and spiritual needs of these men and women by providing free food, clothing, shelter, spiritual and personal guidance and is completely supported by individual, business and church donations. For more information, go to www.ugmdallas.org.
LEMCO Sponsors Construction Education and Research Foundation
LEMCO has sponsored and donated door prizes for TEXO, the Dallas Chapter of Association of General Contractors, Clay Shoot and Poker Tournaments. These events benefited TEXO's Education and Research Foundation, which awards scholarships and grants to Construction students and programs in Region V Universities.
TEXO's Education and Research Foundation is a non-profit Foundation designed to support the local Association of General Contractors relationships with the higher education community and in particular, several regional universities. The Foundation and its operations support the successful workforce development and recruitment programs that include: interview day, student competition, student and faculty scholarships, and construction science department grants.
LEMCO Sponsors United Way Campaign
