COMMUNITY IMPACT

Over the past century, Miron Construction has grown alongside the communities in which we live and work. 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 non-profit 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.

United Way Fox Cities

United Way

United Way envisions a world where every community is a strong one, with jobs that can support families, good schools, and a healthy environment. Miron employees have been giving generously to United Way for several years. In 2021, Miron pledged to donate more than $586,000 in combined employee and corporate donations, an increase of $100,000 from 2020. 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. Each year, they make a significant impact on the programs and services supported by United Way throughout each of the communities in which Miron offices are located, including Neenah, Green Bay, Madison, Milwaukee, Wausau, and Eau Claire, Wisconsin, as well as Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“In their engagement with United Way Fox Cities, the Miron team has been true to their mission of building excellence. Miron’s culture of dreaming and caring comes through in their big-hearted leadership and commitment, not only for United Way, but for the entire community. At Miron, people want to give back, and that passion is contagious! We are grateful for your generosity and vision as you partner with us to build a stronger, more caring community for everyone.”
Peter Kelly
Former President & CEO of United Way Fox Cities

Boys & Girls Clubs

Through our support and the support of others, Boys & Girls Clubs provide kids and teens with a safe place to develop essential skills, make lasting connections, and have fun. As a result, Club kids are more likely to graduate from high school, be physically active every day, and volunteer in their communities. Miron is honored to donate to Boys & Girls Clubs in Green Bay, Oshkosh, Wausau, and the Fox Valley.

The YMCA

The YMCA

Every day, the YMCA supports kids, adults, seniors, and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish, and encourage. When Miron and others support YMCAs, we make our communities stronger and help people realize the power of their full potential. Miron has donated to YMCAs in South Wood County, Green Bay, and the Fox Cities, as well as to the Wisconsin Alliance of YMCAs.  

“Miron has made a meaningful impact on our organization and throughout our community for many years and in numerous ways. Miron has been instrumental in the success of the YMCA and several other non-profits through their generous support of time, talent, and treasure from throughout the Miron Family. We are blessed as a community to have Miron Construction call the Fox Cities home.”
William B. Breider III
President & CEO of the YMCA of the Fox Cities

FOX CITIES MARATHON

Miron has been supporting the Community First Fox Cities Marathon for many years and has been in the platinum sponsor role since 2014. Our partnership and support goes beyond financial; every September, members of the Miron team participate in this community-wide event by volunteering, cheering on runners, and participating in the weekend of events. The Community First Fox Cities Marathon donates to local community non-profit organizations, including the Fox Cities Diaper Bank, Special Olympics Wisconsin, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the American Cancer Society, and more.

Miron Volunteer Program (MVP)

Corporate giving is just one way that Miron continues to breathe life into our 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 any non-profit organizations within the communities Miron calls home. Miron employees donate approximately 200 hours of time each year to several worthy community organizations.

MVP: Community Clean-Up
Miron employees regularly head outdoors to pick up trash and debris that has collected on trails and along roads and riverways near our offices. Being a good neighbor is what it’s all about!
MVP: Make A Difference Day
In celebration of Make a Difference Day, Miron employees folded origami cranes, a symbol of strength, to be distributed through area schools’ Sources of Strength program to students struggling with social isolation.
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.

The event is funded by way of employee donations.

Feeding America® Eastern Wisconsin

One in seven people in northeast Wisconsin faces hunger daily. Hunger does not discriminate. It knows no age, race, or sex. Each year, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin serves more than 400,000 people in their mission to solve hunger. Beyond volunteerism, Miron was happy to donate in-kind work for the organization’s build-out at their Appleton facility. 

“Every morning when I arrive in our beautiful Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin building, I’m reminded of the partnership we have with Miron Construction. Miron walked with us through the entire design, construction and opening of the food bank, and they continue to be alongside us in the three years since. 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.”

St. Joseph food prograM

The largest food pantry in the Fox Valley, St. Joseph Food Program works collaboratively with other non-profit agencies and area school districts to extend their reach to outlying areas and students in need of food stability. Miron was honored to support St. Joseph’s Food Program by donating our construction services to achieve its goal of creating a safer, easier distribution option for the people it serves.

“Everyone at St. Joe’s is very happy with the drive-up distribution model. Because of the support of Miron Construction and many other vendors, St. Joe’s is able to bring our volunteers back inside where they will serve our guests from distribution windows. I can’t begin to express how grateful we are for the community’s support of this project. St. Joe’s has been serving those needing food assistance in the Fox Valley for 39 years. This model will take us into the future, ensuring safety for all volunteers and guests while offering face-to-face interactions that are so important.”

Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin

Miron collaborated with Make-A-Wish Wisconsin to grant the wish of a very special five-year-old, 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 excavation toys.

Rawhide

Through the support of Miron and others, Rawhide continues to transform lives by providing healing therapy, counseling, and skill development for young adults. Rawhide’s commitment is to love and serve those who need it the most by combining faith, compassion, and commitment.

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
