Together We Connect
Together We Connect
Created as a company-wide initiative, TogetherWeConnect is Granite’s way of providing an environment where customers engage and interact with each other to build relationships. Through thoughtful programs and activities, our customers have the opportunity to become more connected, bring about positive change in their community and have some fun along the way. It’s Granite’s way of creating community at work.
Strike Out Hunger
Granite customers, along with team members in each city, were able to pack more than 8,500 snack boxes this summer and made a positive impact on the children served by the Boys & Girls Clubs. These are kids that often don’t have access to meals or snacks during the summer, unless provided by the club.
Summer is the hungriest time of the year for many kids and the heartfelt stories of gratitude shared by the local clubs from the kids is what TogetherWeConnect is all about!
Thanks to our customers, along with the Granite teams, we made the holidays a little merrier for more than 2,500 seniors in 25 nursing home/assisted living facilities. Silver Bells benefited low-income senior care facilities with personal care packages filled with much needed items. Additional gifts were collected from our customers for the activity centers in each facility. The facilities provided a wish list of items, such as games, crafts, movies, blankets – and our customers went above and beyond with these donations!
The feedback we received from the nursing home facilities and our customers was incredibly meaningful in every city. We touched the lives of so many less fortunate this holiday season!
Southern Methodist University Cox Executive Education
TogetherWeConnect doesn’t just focus on philanthropy. In October 2017, Granite collaborated with Southern Methodist University Cox Executive Education in Dallas to bring a leadership and strategic thinking class called “The Changing Workplace: Leadership for the Future” exclusively to Granite Park customers. Eighteen people participated in the 3-week, 6-course program, with five companies represented by the attendees. The program speaks to Granite’s efforts to provide an atmosphere where businesses and their employees can grow.
