Raymond Attends 2016 Baja Challenge

Posted October 10, 2016

Raymond’s San Diego region recently participated in the San Diego Building Industry’s annual Project Mercy 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. Both organizations brought employee volunteers from the office and field, along with their family members.

The Project Mercy Baja Challenge has been taking place for 17 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 1st, produced 10 homes for those families most in need. The project was a coordinated effort between the non-profit organization Project Mercy and Baja Challenge, and required both volunteers as well as donations for building materials.

Raymond appreciates the opportunity to work with such great organizations, as well as use our resources, skills, and expertise to help give back to the community.
