Jendco is pleased to announce our May partnership for Jendco Gives Back. Construction Angels affects a niche very near and dear to us. Their services revolve around helping families heal after a construction worker parent or spouse dies on a job site.
The Construction Angels Charity is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization that provides immediate financial assistance and grief counseling to the children and spouse left behind when a construction worker has a fatality on the job site. We offer construction scholarship opportunities to qualified applicants, and additional scholarships to surviving children of a fallen worker.

This is approximately 4.5 construction workers killed per working day in the USA.
