Weaver Construction Services is giving back this holiday season by helping a local shelter prepare for shed and playground installation.
Earlier this year, Weaver invited nonprofit religious-based organizations to apply for up to $5,000 worth of services from the asphalt, concrete and drainage-repair contractor. North Strand Housing Shelter in Longs is the recipient of the free service.
“We were excited to kick off this initiative. There were a lot of worthy candidates and the decision was not easy. Wowever, we’re passionate about partnering with the team at the North Strand Housing Shelter and do just a small part in bettering the lives of the individuals and families in their care,” Jason Weaver, co-owner and chief estimator of Weaver Construction Services, said.

“We are so grateful to Weaver Construction Services for their willingness to help with this project,” Dana Black, executive director of North Strand Housing Shelter, said. “We desperately need a safe place for the shelter children to play outside and to protect items from the weather.”
Weaver mainly serves large-scale communities and businesses, but wanted to help those who may not have the funds to accomplish their projects this year.
North Strand Housing Shelter helps house the homeless and offers education and lessons about building character and integrity.
