Redi-Mix Earns 2014 Concrete Cares Award From the NRMCA
EULESS, Texas, March 13, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Redi-Mix, LLC, a business unit of U.S. Concrete, Inc. (Nasdaq:USCR), today announced it was awarded the 2014 Concrete Cares Award from the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association in recognition of its longstanding commitment to giving back to its community and, specifically for this past year, for its work on behalf of the Clayton Dabney Foundation for Kids with Cancer. For the last 18 years, Redi-Mix Concrete has held a golf tournament with proceeds benefiting those less fortunate in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Over the years, Redi-Mix Concrete has raised close to $750,000 for various charities. Last year was the fourth year the Redi-Mix Charity Classic benefited the Clayton Dabney Foundation, which was named in memory of a six year old boy who died from a rare form of terminal cancer. In 2013, at the 18th Redi-Mix Charity Classic, over $92,000.00 was gifted to the foundation. More than 100 employees gave close to 1,000 man-hours combined of their time through labor, fundraising and volunteering to make this event a success.
"Our mission is to be a responsible corporate citizen but our work with the Clayton Dabney Foundation is so much more personal to our company," said U.S. Concrete President and Chief Executive Officer William J. Sandbrook. "All of our employees take great pride in the difference they make in these families' lives."
The Clayton Dabney Foundation anonymously assists needy families with children in the last stages of terminal cancer. The Foundation often provides gifts of last wishes to a child that may be out of financial reach of the parents. In some cases, financial assistance has been provided to ease the heavy financial burdens of families such as car, house, utility payments and other obligations so the parents can spend more time with their dying child. A contribution will be made in Redi-Mix's honor to the foundation by the members of NRMCA's Manufacturers, Products & Services Division.
NRMCA, based in Silver Spring, MD, represents the producers of ready mixed concrete and the companies that provide materials, equipment and support to the industry. It conducts education, training, promotion, research, engineering, safety, environmental, technological, lobbying and regulatory programs.
