Case Gives Back

Katie Weiler is managing editor of Construction Equipment magazine. Katie has covered the industry for 20 years, and she is responsible for the annual Top 100 Awards program.

Even in this tough economy, manufacturers and contractors are making a concerted effort to give back to their communities. At World of Concrete last week, Case launched its Case Community Challenge program, which will recognize contractors who raise money or donate their time, efforts and equipment for their neighborhoods.

Case is looking for companies that are improving their communities by participating in park construction, renewal projects or excavations for housing projects such as Habitat for Humanity home builds. “These contractors are hometown heroes who often go unrecognized,” says Ion Warner, senior director of marketing.

Every month this year, Case Community Challenge will honor contractors who worked on a charitable project (started after Jan. 1, 2010) that helped improve their neighborhoods. The monthly winners will receive $1,000 CNH Parts and Service reward card, and Case will also donate $1,000 to the finalists’ charities. In November, one grand-prize winner will be selected from the monthly semifinalists and receive one year’s free use of a Case N Series backhoe loader as well as $5,000 to its charity.

Even if you haven’t worked on a charitable project as of yet, let’s all make a concerted effort to give back to our communities this year.
