BOMAG Americas Supports Construction Angels Charity Again with CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2023 Campaign
BOMAG Americas raised over $6,400 during the CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2023 show in Las Vegas, Nevada, to support Construction Angels, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization. Construction Angels was founded by Kristi Gibbs and their mission is to provide immediate financial assistance and grief counseling to the children and spouse left behind when a construction worker has a fatality on the job site. Construction Angels offers construction scholarship opportunities to qualified applicants, and additional scholarships to surviving children of fallen workers. The organization also focuses on promoting job site safety awareness.
To support Construction Angels, BOMAG Americas dedicated a portion of their CONEXPO 2023 booth space to run a t-shirt campaign. BOMAG asked attendees to give a minimum five-dollar donation in exchange for a BOMAG-branded t-shirt. There were five different t-shirt styles available, and they all featured the outline of a BOMAG machine or service icon on the front and a fun product- or service-related saying on the back. Some of the sayings were “I Eat Asphalt for Lunch” (Mills), “Keep Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin’” (Asphalt Rollers) and “Who Needs a Manual?” (Service).
“BOMAG is excited to be partnering again with Construction Angels and looks forward to future campaigns as well. It’s amazing being able to represent such a great foundation on top of collecting over $6,400 in donations to help families of road construction workers who have lost their lives in work-related accidents. It’s a great cause and it reflects BOMAG’s core initiatives promoting jobsite safety awareness,” said Dena Jenkins, BOMAG manager, marketing & communications. BOMAG plans to continue its relationship with Construction Angels so watch for their next campaign to support the cause.
