Over the past several months, the Snead Construction and CAS Riegler Cos. teams have banded together in support of a wonderful charter school in SE Washington D.C., Ingenuity Prep. Ingenuity Prep is a leading charter school in Washington D.C.’s Ward 7 and 8 serving Pre-K to 1st grade preparing students to succeed in college and beyond as impactful civic leaders.
This winter, through a partnership with Roughy Toys, Snead Construction and CAS Riegler Cos. donated “Alex” Dolls to the students, along with the accompanying story book. Roughy toys manufactures and distributes toys on a one-2-one model, meaning with every toy purchased one is given to a child in need. In our purchase of $8,000 of Roughy’s “Alex” Doll, we were able to make the children of Ingenuity Prep smile, while supporting another great organization.
Most recently, Ingenuity Prep informed us that they had a need for cubbies in the hallway for the children to store their belongings in. Snead Construction and CAS Riegler stepped up to the plate to build and install 140 cubbies by schools opening by the middle of August when the students return.
Employees and Owners alike jumped on board, not only financially, but with the donation of time, expertise, and muscle to get this project completed. Nearly every member of the Snead and CAS Riegler teams hands were involved in execution of this project. The large (and heavy!) cubbies were built from scratch by our team under the expert guidance of some of our more skilled carpenters Zeb Bogdanich, Bryan Weldon, and Peter Braunholer. Twenty cubby systems (140 cubbies) were then transported and installed by Snead and CAS Riegler Employees on the first day of school! While we are excited to say our donation can be valued at $30,000, it is the time, effort and teamwork it took to support this school that makes us most proud.
