Giving back to our neighbors and the communities where we live and work has been part of our culture since the company began nearly 50 years ago. It goes back to the vision of our founder, Elam G. Stoltzfus, Jr. – focus on others and build relationships through honesty and integrity.
Whether it’s donating gifts to a local organization or donating our materials and skills to build a home for a family in need, our employees are passionate about serving and helping others create better lives for themselves. Visit the Photo gallery of our community service activities.
