Summit Contracting Group Joins Shelters to Shutters’ Private Industry Solution to Fight Homelessness
May 8, 2018:
Shelters to Shutters (S2S), a national non-profit that transitions individuals and families from homelessness to economic self-sufficiency, today announced it has received a $100,000 donation from Jacksonville, Fla.-based Summit Contracting Group, the apartment industry's largest general contractor representing over 100,000 completed multifamily units.
"We are thrilled to have Summit as a Leadership Circle sponsor," said Andy Helmer, CEO of S2S. "We are very proud of the impact we've had and the lives we've transformed since our founding four years ago. This gift significantly strengthens our ability to transition ready-to-work individuals experiencing homelessness into employment and housing opportunities with our apartment industry partners. We cannot thank Summit enough for taking a leadership role in supporting our mission." …
We celebrated Luke Roy last night who is an honoree for the Jacksonville Business Journal's 40 Under 40 Awards.
Congratulations Luke! From the Business Journal:
"Roy, who has spent almost 20 years in construction, began working for Summit Contracting Group in 2011 as an estimator and has since moved his way up to become the company’s Director of Preconstruction Services, leading a seven-person team. But the accomplishment Roy is most proud of isn’t career-related at all – it’s his three kids, two of whom were adopted after he and his wife fostered them. He said the fact that he has a job that allows him to be home when he needs to be is one of the most important things about it. Outside of work, Roy teaches choir to elementary school kids through his church. He is also involved in the Promise to Kate Foundation, which funds research of Myotonic Dystrophy and every Thanksgiving he volunteers at Trinity Rescue Mission to help feed Jacksonville’s homeless population."
