Building the Community

Purpose

As a leader in the construction industry, Raymond serves as a corporate role model. What the employees at Raymond do, and what Raymond does as a company can profoundly influence the activities of other people and other companies. This provides Raymond a tremendous opportunity to be an industry leader in demonstrating the importance of community, social responsibility and to inspire others. Each of us can have a positive influence on society and improve the quality of life for everyone.

Raymond has a Charitable Contribution Committee, established to accomplish these goals and to foster Raymond’s values. Most importantly, the Members of this Committee serve as role models for other employees on how each of us can help change our world for the better.

There is a growing interdependence between businesses and the communities in which they operate. The construction work performed by Raymond creates and improves physical structures. However, community improvement extends to those activities which provide positive support to the greater needs of society. Raymond has a social responsibility to help improve the quality of life and to give back to the communities which have supported Raymond for so many years.
