Power With Purpose: Relationships Matter.

Power donates 5% of our profits to more than 50 organizations every year.

Power With Purpose: Relationships Matter.

Success comes from the strength of our relationships – with each other, with our clients, with the communities where we work, and with the world around us. 

Through Power With Purpose, we impact peoples' lives in a concrete and foundational way.  Our involvement includes volunteering time and skills, raising funds, donating materials, and coordinating special projects within Chicago communities. For years, Power has been involved with key organizations, such as the Greater Chicago Food Depository, WINGS, and Rebuilding Together.  Through these organizations, we improve Chicago neighborhoods, one family at a time.  At our annual Rebuilding Together event, Power employees and friends work side-by-side with other contractors who donate their time and materials to improve a home in an underserved neighborhood of Chicago.  

But, we also provide opportunities for the community to come in and see what we do. Power's alliances with AIM HIGH and the ACE Mentor Program allow us to share our passion for construction with urban youth who may not have other opportunities to see professionals in action.  Our goal is to encourage them to take the initiative and pursue their interests, whether in the construction industry or elsewhere. 

Power People Get Involved With Community Service Days

Our Power With Purpose initiative offers full-time employees two Community Service Days annually to fulfill their passions to give back to their communities.   

Power employees have worked with a number of organizations including Feed My Starving Children, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago, Harmonic Connections PLUS, and World Servants.

Power's strong working relationship with the ACE Mentor Program gives a diverse group of high school students industry training and awareness.
Power began working with Junior Achievement in 2016. Since then, 28 Power employees have contributed their time and energy to serving Chicago's kids.
Power is proud to be a corporate partner with AIM HIGH, providing low-income, urban students with a glimpse into career possibilities of the construction industry.

Perspective

“I am glad that Power offered the opportunity and encouraged me to participate in the recent Junior Achievement day at Reinberg Elementary School in Chicago. It was rewarding to help kindergartners understand the differences between needs and wants – and how they can earn money and budget for what they want. Their reaction to our presence in the classroom was immediate and I enjoyed seeing the impact as they thought about and responded to questions. It was eye-opening to see what teachers go through on a daily basis and better understand their motivation to give back as they grow the next generation.” --- Dhara Thakkar, HR Generalist

"Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago is proud to be partners with Power Construction in our efforts to revitalize homes and communities in need. For more than 20 years, Power Construction has played an important part in our home repair efforts, and has continued to demonstrate a great commitment to the community through philanthropy and volunteerism. The value that Power has provided to us through financial support, in-kind donations, board participation, and volunteer hours has been priceless. We thank Power Construction for their commitment to the communities, and for helping to transform homes into warmer, safer, and healthier places to live for our homeowners." --- Wanda Ramirez, CEO, Rebuilding Together
