Parents for Alternate Solutions (PASS) contacted the Andersen Construction Foundation for help completing a “dream project” for their organization. PASS was in need of a safe outdoor space for their highest needs clients to enjoy. PASS is an adult day center serving clients with developmental disabilities. Unfortunately, many of their clients are severely disabled and unable to participate in the field trips outside of the center. The director of PASS requested a deck for all of their clients to use to access the outdoors! PASS had a very small budget and without the generosity of Andersen employees and subcontractors, the project would not have been possible.
To make the project a reality, Andersen employees Mike Sanada, Brent Rovianek, Paul Rovianek and Kevin Meyer volunteered 91 hours to plan & build a deck and wheelchair ramp over two weekends! Andersen employee Scott Holstrom secured a donation of supplies for the Andersen Foundation from Williams Concrete Accessories valued at more than $3,500 which kept costs at a minimum. The completed deck was built with Trex and is 16x24 feet. A special thanks to our incredible volunteers for making a dream come true for PASS and for giving back to those in need in our community!
