One of the most significant factors that drive who we are and what we do is our love and support of the community. Giving back to the Seattle and Puget Sound area is not an obligation for our team: it's part of our mission!
We've recently had the opportunity to support a local organization that's vital to local residents in need of assistance from Arlington Community Food Bank. This organization works hard to ensure no one goes hungry in North Snohomish County. We also believe that it is a worthy cause!
In partnership with Arlington High School ASB and the City of Arlington, SMARTCap Group and Pivotal Construction donated $10,000 toward the purchase of a new refrigerated mobile food pantry for Arlington Community Food Bank's Mobile Market. This refrigerated vehicle will improve the food bank's services to the community, making it possible to offer a full grocery market experience with fresh produce, dairy, quality meats, bakery items, and other essentials.
Making a Difference
Several team members were honored to present an oversized check to the Arlington Community Food Bank. We consider it part of our responsibility to the community to help worthwhile causes and organizations working to make this area a better place for our residents.
We've learned from the Arlington Community Food Bank that:
- 1 in 7 people faces hunger in Western Washington.
- 1 in 5 of them are kids.
- Most food bank customers have jobs, and nearly all visitors have homes.
- Financial and medical difficulties force many people to choose between food, utilities, and medicine.
In other words, hunger can impact any of us. Hungry children can't learn, hungry adults are less productive and frequently miss work, and hungry seniors often must choose between medicine and food. Supporting our local food bank with this contribution to a refrigerated truck helps give more people access to necessary food items (like produce and meat), and it's something we are grateful to do to help make a difference!
We're Here to Do More
At Pivotal Construction, we strive to do more than simply create structures or improve buildings. While our expertise and experience deliver the highest-quality construction (always), we're also hyper-focused on building relationships and being good corporate citizens. We look forward to more opportunities to enhance lives in our area!
