Using what you’ve got to give back

Massaro CM team with CCWRC’s Anne Ard, Executive Director, and Donna Schwenzer, Assistant Director.

As the holiday season approaches, you may find yourself looking for opportunities to give back to the community. Look no further than the skills you already possess to find a good match!

This year we learned about the Centre County Women’s Resource Center (CCWRC) when our team was seeking volunteer activities in the State College area community. Upon realizing the need for a sheltered outdoor space near a play area for residents of the CCWRC, we had our answer. The team then used their professional skills to design and build the porch on the exterior of the CCWRC’s building. What better way to serve your community than tap into your existing skills? You can start this process by speaking with organizations of your choice to see if your skills will fit their needs.

The CCWRC was established in 1975 with the philosophy that women should be provided with the necessary resources to reach their full potential. Their vision is to empower women and end domestic and sexual violence through a variety of services, education, and advocacy. They provide free and confidential services to women in the area with counselors/advocates who are available 24 hours a day.

Want to help the CCWRC? Here are a few ways you can get involved:

  • Volunteer
  • Attend events such as the 5K run/walk Steps 2 Safety and Twilight Dinners
  • Donations – monetary or needed items
  • Display information about the cause and the CCWRC in your workplace, library, etc.
  • Utilize your personal and professional skills to serve on a Board Committee

"I have worked with a number of quality construction management companies in the years that I have been doing roofing construction - but I have never been as wholly impressed with an organization as I am with Massaro. It was a pleasure to work with many of your personnel and I look forward to working with your company again on future projects."

-Ben Hartzler, President of Mid-State Roofing and Coating, Inc.

"During the school year, our entire building is being renovated in three different phases and two of those phases are occurring while students are in the building. To this point there has been little disruption to our learning environment given the scope of the work. The two on-site managers are professional, productive, and able to answer my questions as the project moves along. Massaro has my recommendation for this type of work in the future."

-Robert Scherrer, Ed. D., Principal at Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy
