Raymond’s San Diego region participated in the San Diego Building Industry’s annual Baja Challenge by helping to build a home for a family in need just south of the San Diego border. Raymond was invited to the team challenge by the Whiting-Turner Contracting Company. Raymond and Whiting-Turner brought 30+ employee volunteers, along with their family and friends. Ten homes in total were built by participating companies.
The Project Mercy Baja Challenge has been taking place for 22 years now with the goal of improving the standard of living and reducing health hazards for impoverished families in the colonies east of Tijuana, Mexico. This year’s event, which took place on Saturday, October 8th, was a coordinated effort between the non-profit organization Project Mercy and Baja Challenge. Raymond provided a volunteer building crew as well as donations for building materials.
Each year Raymond is humbled by the opportunity to give back to one of our neighboring communities. We appreciate being able to partner with such giving organizations and industry partners.
