Texas-Based NRMCA Producer Member Earns 2014 Concrete Cares Award
Monday, March 03, 2014

Ready Mix Company Lauded for Exceptional Community Service Silver Spring, MD – March 3, 2014 – The Manufacturers, Products & Services Division of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association has awarded the 2014 Concrete Cares Award to Redi-Mix Concrete, a U.S. Concrete Company, in recognition of its longstanding commitment to giving back to its community and, specifically for this past year, for its work on behalf of the Clayton Dabney Foundation for Kids with Cancer. For the last 18 years, Redi-Mix Concrete has held a golf tournament with proceeds benefiting those less fortunate in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Over the years, Redi-Mix Concrete has raised close to $750,000 for various charities. Last year was the fourth year the Redi- Mix Charity Classic benefited the Clayton Dabney Foundation, which was named in memory of a six year old boy who died from a rare form of terminal cancer. In 2013, at the 18th Redi‐Mix Charity Classic, over $92,000.00 was gifted to the foundation. More than 100 employees gave close to 1,000 man-hours combined of their time through labor, fundraising and volunteering to make this event a success.

The Clayton Dabney Foundation anonymously assists needy families with children in the last stages of terminal cancer. The Foundation often provides gifts of last wishes to a child that may be out of the financial reach of the parents. In some cases, financial assistance has been provided to ease the heavy financial burdens of families such as car, house, utility and other obligations so the parents can spend more time with their dying child. A contribution in Redi-Mix Concrete’s honor will be made to the foundation by the members of the Manufacturers, Products & Services Division.

With ready mixed concrete plants in almost every community in America, NRMCA member companies are making a real difference in the communities they serve. The Concrete Cares Award recognizes these efforts and shines a national spotlight on the positive impact ready mixed concrete companies have in hometowns across the nation. All ready mixed concrete producers that are members of NRMCA are eligible for nomination. (Click here for more information on the Concrete Cares Award Program.)

NRMCA, based in Silver Spring, MD, represents the producers of ready mixed concrete and the companies that provide materials, equipment and support to the industry. It conducts education, training, promotion, research, engineering, safety, environmental, technological, lobbying and regulatory programs.
