COMMUNITY IMPACT

Over the past century, Miron Construction has grown alongside the communities in which we live and work. Our core driver of communities guides everything that we do as an organization. We embrace the importance of giving back and encourage all of our employees to get involved in their communities, assist their neighbors in need, and better the world by utilizing their unique interests and talents.

As a company, we provide support in many ways, from sponsorships and donations to in-kind services. We are proud to play an active role in our communities by contributing to projects that make them wonderful places in which to raise families, find meaningful work, and enjoy local entertainment and recreational activities.

As we’ve entered new communities, cultivated relationships, and grown as an organization, we have an even stronger sense of appreciation for the places we call home. We continually invest in the people, neighborhoods, and nonprofit organizations that have given us so much. It is inspiring to watch them thrive and continue to make an impact in countless ways.

At Miron Construction, we exist to serve the communities in which we live and work, giving back whenever and wherever we can.

Miron employees have been giving generously to United Way for several years. In 2020, Miron donated more than $483,000 in combined employee and corporate donations, an increase of $50,000 from 2019. More than three-quarters of our employees made a gift. As you can see, we take our commitment to sharing in the responsibility of ensuring a safe, healthy community for all very seriously. Miron’s collective commitment to strengthening communities is apparent in its employees’ ongoing donation of time, talent, and treasure.

Boys & Girls Clubs

In 2020, Miron was honored to donate nearly $450,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs in Green Bay, Oshkosh, Wausau, and the Fox Valley.

Miron Volunteer Program (MVP)

Corporate giving is just one way that Miron continues to breathe life into its core value of Communities. Additionally, and equally valuable, is the time that staff members personally give to efforts that are near and dear to their hearts. This donation of time, energy, and resources takes place on an individual level as well as the corporate level and is supported through the Miron Volunteer Program (MVP).

MVP hours may be used during the workday to volunteer at nonprofit organizations that address economic, physical, and/or emotional needs within the communities Miron calls home. In 2020, Miron employees donated approximately 200 hours of time to several worthy community organizations.

MVP: Community Clean-Up
Although the pandemic initially delayed Miron employees in gathering to clean up their respective communities in honor of Earth Day, the autumn brought with it the opportunity for people to step out into the great outdoors and pick up trash and debris that had collected on trails, in highway ditches, and next to riverways over the summer.
MVP: Make A Difference Day
In addition to participating in the Volunteer Fox Cities Mystery Mission, Miron staff in various offices carved out time to honor National Make A Difference Day by supporting both the young and old. Hygiene boxes were packed and delivered to Youth Go, a nonprofit providing underserved and at-risk youth in grades five through 12 with opportunities to do well in school, develop as individuals, and prepare for their next step in life. For assisted living facilities, birdhouses were constructed, painted, and ultimately gifted to residents in various communities, encouraging feathered friends to stop by the recipients’ windows for regular visits throughout the pandemic.
MVP: Cards of Kindness
At the onset of the pandemic, when senior living facilities were on lockdown, Miron staff members and their families created and sent personal greeting cards to residents to let them know that community members were thinking of them during such an uncertain time.
MVP: Operation Gratitude Paracord Bracelet Creation
In honor of Veterans Day, Miron staff members supported Operation Gratitude—a national organization serving military and first responder heroes—by way of creating paracord bracelets. These functional bracelets are literal lifelines for our service men and women in an emergency; in an instant, and with one strategic pull, 7.5 feet of cord capable of holding up to 550 pounds is available to be used for everything from building a makeshift shelter to suturing an open wound.
MVP: Volunteer Fox Cities Mystery Mission
In honor of National Make A Difference Day, members of the Miron team signed up for a Mystery Mission through Volunteer Fox Cities. After receiving clues about their assignment for several days in advance, the volunteers were finally given the name and address of the non-profit to which they were assigned just a few hours before they were due to report. Miron staff found themselves at BEAMING, Inc., an organization in Neenah that offers equine-assisted therapeutic riding for people of all ages and abilities. The volunteers tackled various improvements and chores, including cleaning out the arena, painting out-buildings, and cleaning saddles and other equipment.

Kids Christmas Party

Although the celebration may have looked a little different than in past years, not even COVID-19 could stop the Miron staff from sharing Christmas cheer with 10 families whose children are participants in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. This annual event, which is funded through employee donations, involved the typical staff participation, including shopping for and wrapping gifts, assembling food baskets and craft kits, and confirming Santa would be on hand to spread Christmas joy. Rather than a party at the office, the event turned into a cheerful drive-through experience, where a hot chocolate bar, festive tunes, and a contingency of elves welcomed each family to safely load their vehicles with supplies to help make their holidays a bit more merry and bright.

Children's Wisconsin

Miron is a proud partner of Children’s Wisconsin, whose vision is to make the children of Wisconsin the healthiest in the nation. Providing care from routine visits to life-saving advances and treatment options, they work to ensure that every child and family receives nothing but the best care. In 2020, Miron proudly donated $200,000 to Children’s Wisconsin to ensure their holistic health experts can continue their work preventing childhood suffering.
“Our Child Advocacy and Protection Services program is grateful for the support of Miron Construction in our efforts to respond to, and prevent, child abuse and neglect. This gift enables our team to be strategic and nimble in supporting educational and service missions, as well as expand access to child maltreatment medical expertise for children, families, and investigators in Wisconsin. Your generosity helps Children’s provide the best possible care for kids each and every day—we are humbled by your belief in our work. Thank you for helping us help the most vulnerable of kids.”

Whether through volunteerism, financial support, or expert advice, we can always count on Miron Construction to be a strong partner in our service to community.”

In 2020, Miron donated nearly $950,000 through donations, sponsorships, and in-kind work to help ensure students of SMCS are provided a well-rounded experience that encompasses students’ intellectual, spiritual, physical, and emotional growth and development in a faith-filled environment.

Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin

Miron collaborated with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin to grant the wish of a very special five-year-old named Dominic. Dominic is living with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, a severe neurological disease that makes him prone to seizures. Dominic wished to be a “worker man” for the day, so several Miron team members stepped up to make his wish come true.

Dominic started his day with a police and fire escort from his home to a nearby Miron project site. Once on site, Dominic joined the crew, undertaking such efforts as operating equipment, pouring concrete, and laying block. Following the site visit, a custom sandbox was constructed at Dominic’s house, with the help of Dominic himself, to ensure he had the perfect place to play with his collection of excavating toys.

Through the support of Miron and others, Rawhide continues to transform lives by providing healing therapy, counseling, and skills development for young adults.

“Rawhide Youth Services is blessed to have Miron Construction’s support. Your team’s gifts help us transform the lives of Wisconsin’s at-risk youth and their families who need a second chance at life. Through our new and updated facilities as well as your generous donations, Rawhide staff can continue providing critical services to accomplish our mission each year through therapy, residential care, education, love, and hope with every youth who comes to us for help.”
Alan B. Loux
President and CEO, Rawhide Youth Services
