NAPA OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS: COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AWARDS

Silver Star Construction's Community Team held a benefit car show and raised more than $11,000 for
its community involvement projects.

employees, who have donated more
than 200 hours for six different
community efforts.
"Silver Star Construction and its
employees want to give back to the
community that has been so good to
us," said Craig Parker, Executive Vice
President of Silver Star Construction.
"We help the local community
when asked and where it is needed."
The company's community
involvement activities are organized
by its Community Team, a group of
employees and managers who plan
fundraisers to assist charities, field
community requests for support, and
organize employee volunteerism.
The Community Team is the heart
and soul of a community-minded
company looking for ways to make
a difference.
In 2016, Silver Star Construction
and its Community Team worked
on a variety of projects to help
community organizations and
individuals. In some instances, the
organizations requested assistance;
in other instances, the Community
Team learned about a need and
enacted a plan to help.

Silver Star Construction's
Community Team held a benefit car
show to raise funds for some of the
team's efforts to support community
activities such as Santa Express, St.
Jude Children's Research Hospital,
Moore Crime Stoppers, Christmas
cards for veterans, an animal shelter,
and a women's resource center.
Local car enthusiasts paid to register
their vehicles in the car show; the
event was well-received by the
community. The Community Team
raised more than $11,200.
In a separate fundraising event,
the Community Team organized
company participation in St.
Jude's Oklahoma City Walk/Run
to Beat Childhood Cancer. It is
an annual event for the medical
facility, which focuses its expertise
on children with cancer and other
diseases. Silver Star Construction
was represented with a 50-person
team of employees, family, and
friends that raised $6,546 for this
important cause. In addition,
among all the local corporate
sponsors, Silver Star Construction
made the top donation.

Fundraising organized by the
Community Team has ensured
there is funds available when
unforeseen needs arise. A local boy
with brain cancer received funds
for his medical treatment after an
employee shared the news with
Silver Star Construction's Human
Resources department, telling them
that the boy was in desperate need.
The HR director notified the head
of the Community Team about
the boy's situation. After quickly
notifying everyone on the team,
it was decided that there were
funds in the Community Team
bank account to cover the boy's
immediate medical care.
Santa Express is an activity run
by the local fire department to raise
funds for coats and gifts for families
in need during the holiday season. At
Silver Star Construction's Christmas
party, employees were asked to make
a donation or bring a child or teen
gift item worth $10 or more. For each
employee who participated, their
name was included in a raffle to win
a day off with pay. The party raised
$400, and 75 gifts for children and
teens were collected.
Also at the Silver Star
Construction Christmas party, the
Community Team held an annual
silent auction to raise money for
their general account. The silent
auction is an excellent opportunity
to Christmas shop and support the
company's community involvement
efforts. Last year, the Community
Team raised $1,600 through the
silent auction.
In addition to sending Christmas
cards to active duty veterans, Silver
Star Construction's Community
Team showed its appreciation by
providing Christmas gifts and
dinner to a local veteran's family.
A second veteran was chosen to
receive a $200 gift card to a local
grocery store after Silver Star
learned the family could not afford
a Christmas dinner.
