Kiewit Builds Community

Kiewit is one of the largest and most respected construction and mining organizations in North America. At Kiewit, their motto is “We build quality projects safely, on time and on budget; no matter how large or small”. Kiewit brings their motto to the Food Bank, supporting us in many ways – no matter how large or small!

With the Kiewit Infrastructure West office located in Fairfield and the Marsh Landing Generation Station Power Plant in Antioch we receive support not only through holiday and summer food drives, a virtual food drive and a sponsorship for our Admiral’s Garden fundraising event, but we also host a group of strong and dedicated Kiewit volunteers on the second Tuesday evening of every month in our Concord warehouse. At the end of the two hour shift, the Kiewit employees are happily exhausted and we have hundreds of boxes of food or produce ready to go out to people in our community! Kiewit employees believe in giving locally and supporting their community. Thanks Kiewit and Kiewit employees for all you do for our Solano County and Contra Costa County communities!

They Come…They Carry…They Care

It is said that the strength of a nonprofit lies in the hearts and minds of its volunteers. Working on the planning of our annual An Afternoon in the Admiral’s Garden fundraiser certainly substantiates that claim in so many ways. While volunteers make a difference every day at the Food Bank, during June and particularly on the day of this special event, they are an indispensable extension of our staff.  Whether it was setting up the event itself, warmly welcoming our guests as they arrived, quickly and efficiently getting people registered, serving at the lunch, assisting with the auctions and games, and then of course the clean up afterwards, our dedicated volunteers were a vital part of making an exceptional Afternoon in the Admiral’s Garden on Sunday, June 24th.

NCL Rolling Hills and NCL Vista Oak mothers and daughters, the Contra Costa County Employees Team, the AT&T Pioneers, the Food Bank Ambassadors and numerous other individual volunteers helped throughout the day from early until late.  They wholeheartedly support our cause and really work to help us make a difference to all of those we serve. They are the “volunteer faces of the Food Bank” and we are so grateful for all that they do!
