Every year, BBB (Better Business Bureau) presents its Torch Award to firms that demonstrate remarkable ethical practices throughout the year. Located in Lake Zurich, IL, Aloha Construction was the 2017 winner of the BBB’s prestigious award having demonstrated exceptional Market Place Ethics. A panel of judges selected the construction company for a variety of reasons, most notably for having contributed a lot to the local community.
One of the several ways Aloha Construction has had a positive impact on the local community was by joining forces with the Learning Express to start giving free toy shopping sprees to needy local families. Through partnering with David Farbaky Foundation, a foundation named after the company’s CEO and founder, the construction company reached out to the Omni Youth Services and helped them identify needy families, whereby 4 girls and their single mom were picked for the toy shopping spree event. The girls were given a variety of toys they were able to pick within 1 minute. At the end of the event, the family was given toys worth $7,000. The company also demonstrated exceptional generosity after sponsoring a 12-year old boy together with his closest pals to a basketball match between the Houston Rockets and Chicago Bulls. The selected boy had undergone 5 heart surgeries since his birth.
Aloha Construction has also been involved in several other charitable activities. For instance, they donated $5 million to kids with cancer to undergo treatment. The company raised the money after organising the Illinois State University games. The company sponsored the Flying Aces Hockey Team in Central Illinois, whereby they gave free jerseys to the players and further awarded the outstanding players every week during the game.
BBB considered Aloha Construction due to the company’s exceptional community service. Having made significant contribution to the local community, the company was rightfully awarded the prestigious award. Apart from the company demonstrating unwavering care for its community, it also cares for its clients and its employees as well.
