Aloha Construction and Learning Express
Aloha Construction is always looking for ways to benefit their community. The David Farbaky Foundation, named after Aloha Construction’s CEO, reached out to give a single mother and her four daughters an opportunity to grab as many toys as they wanted within 60 seconds. Through this event, the family was able to collect $7,000 worth of toys to take home and keep. Aloha has also contributed to sending a young boy with Congenital Heart Disease to a Bulls game with twelve of his friends, to the Boys and Girls Club in Bloomington, and to their employees with incentive programs. They have maintained exceptional ethical practice and the construction company in Lake Zurich was rewarded for this excellence with the Better Business Bureau Torch Award.
Every year, BBB awards selects a few companies that have excelled in excellent community contributions and ethical practices and awards them for their contributions. Companies that receive this award must excel in maintaining ethical practices within their business throughout the year. It is a high honor to receive a BBB Torch Award, as very few companies qualify for the award. The Torch Award honors those companies who take their time to contribute to and benefit the community they are in. All nominated companies go through a rigorous screening process before they are chosen by a panel of fifteen judges, independent from the companies and from BBB. Aloha Construction, in Lake Zurich, was a proud recipient of the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics.
Aloha Construction partnered with Learning Express with the intent to benefit a family in need within their community. With Learning Express and Omni Youth Services, Aloha was able to identify a family in need and assist them through a toy shopping spree event. Aloha asked Omni Youth Services to find a family in need. A single mother raising her four daughters alone was selected and given the opportunity to participate in the event. The event gave the girls an opportunity to grab as many toys as they wanted within 60 seconds. In just those 60 seconds, the family was able to collect $7,000 worth of toys. This among the many other contributions that Aloha has made, was the reason for winning of the Torch Award For Marketplace Ethics.
