Dig In

2019 Big Dig Community Service Project

ALM Charities, D. L. Gasser Construction and Milestone Materials are proud to sponsor The Big Dig Community Service Project Grant Program for the calendar year 2019.

ALM Charities will be accepting grant applications for Community Service Projects for projects to be completed/built in 2019-2020.

The deadline for grant submittals is April 15, 2019.

Mission

The mission of The Big Dig is to "dig in" and help out our area communities.

VISION

The Big Dig grant application serves as a catalyst to our company and its employees who value working with non-profit organizations to enhance their community through the completion of a community service project that will:

 

  • help build a better tomorrow for the children and families of our area communities
  • encourage unity of community members of all ages to bridge the generation gaps
  • create a unique and lasting experience between our business, our employees, and our communities
  • educate the public on the value of the construction and mining industry and the benefit of having them be members of their community
  • bring out "the construction worker" in all of the volunteers and benefactors by including them in the work

WHAT TYPE OF PROJECTS

Community Service Project submittals should not be limited to gravel and asphalt type projects. Grant applications could be written for such projects/events like these:

  • community park improvements
  • homeless shelter improvements
  • school playground
  • school program enhancements
  • community center improvements
  • food pantry improvements
  • assistance/enhancements to children's programs

We encourage applicants to think "outside the box" when submitting their project.

 

Budget Parameters: It's ok to ask for the "sky" in hopes you get "the stars and/or the moon".

Community Service Projects will be completed/ built in the calendar year 2019-2020. Due to the complexity and preparations for some of the projects selected; the opportunity for project schedules to cross calendar years exists. In order to coordinate the project schedules with the D.L. Gasser Construction and Milestone Materials workload it may be necessary to extend the project timelines.
