U.S. Concrete, Inc. is furthering its hurricane relief efforts in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) in support of affected employees at its two wholly owned subsidiaries, Heavy Materials, LLC and Spartan Products, LLC. The company is sending home generators and care packages consisting of essential health, household, and personal hygiene items to all of its USVI employees to bring then some relief and help with their recovery.
U.S. Concrete also established the U.S. Concrete Hurricane Relief Fund to help employees impacted by the hurricanes with food, clothing, housing, home repairs, transportation, and medical assistance. The company is continuing its efforts to raise funds by matching, dollar-for-dollar, all donations made by its employees.
“Having been on St. Thomas during both Hurricanes Irma and Maria, I know firsthand what our employees and the good citizens of the U.S. Virgin Islands have been through,” says Niel L. Poulsen, U.S. Concrete’s Executive Vice President overseeing USVI operations, in a press release. “U.S. Concrete is committed to helping our employees recover from these devastating storms and getting them back to a normal way of life as quickly as possible. The necessities the company is providing our employees will hopefully aid them to a quick recovery and be a reliable asset for future needs. I am very humbled and proud to be a part of such a generous mission.”
