Remodel Works has been involved in several community outreach programs since it’s establishment in 1984. In 2007, the company undertook a major 6-month community service effort in Tijuana, Mexico to assist in the construction of the Purple Palace Orphanage. Several Remodel Works employees volunteered to help with renovations, and the company also paid for outside laborers to assist during the work week. The entire project was finished with the help of multiple organizations, but Remodel Works’ primary contribution was the completion of 15 bathrooms, a laundry room, and a commercial sized kitchen. The company worked with many of its vendors to donate all of the materials and provide labor. Today, Remodel Works maintains its relationship with the orphanage, which currently cares for over 100 children.
It has become an annual tradition for Remodel Works to participate in a Christmas food drive and the growing Toys for Tots campaign. The food drive that the company contributes to helps local families and the homeless during the holiday season, while the Toys for Tots campaign has been a wonderful way for Remodel Works to give back to children in the San Diego community. During one of its most successful years, Remodel Works was able to donate almost 400 toys for the campaign. The company used four volunteer teams and offered to throw a pizza party for the team with the most toys donated. All together, RW employees thoroughly enjoy the holiday tradition of donating to the Toys for Tots campaign and look forward to continuing the philanthropic efforts that have been life-changing for many people in the local community.
A new addition to the list of philanthropic efforts by Remodel Works is the company’s participation in the 5th annual 100 Wave Challenge. On September 20th, RW will be sponsoring their warehouse manager Ryan Terrell, as he surfs 100 waves in 12 hours. Along with donating over $1000 dollars to Ryan’s efforts, Remodel Works has made extensive efforts to promote the event over social media. The event supports the Boys to Men program, which supports young men in the San Diego area who are growing up without a father figure in their lives. This efforts helps send dedicated Boys to Men mentors to middle schools, high schools, and foster care homes to look out for the boys that the program supports (75% of which are fatherless).
These few philanthropic efforts are part of a much larger goal that Remodel Works has to become a larger part of the community and work closer with programs that are looking to make a positive impact in the San Diego community.
