From the Make a Wish Foundation to many local charities, Ames Construction Inc, is committed to making a difference in the communities in which they serve. Ames employees are encouraged to not only volunteer but to make suggestions on opportunities where Ames can be of service. Helping families attend local events through charitable giving, donating to local food drives and supporting scholarships through golf outings, Ames is always looking for ways to give back. If you know of an organization that you would like us to consider, please reach out to us at office@AmesConstructionInc.com.
A special Wish kid, Isaiah Shorter 15, from Columbia, PA has been through so much the past few years since his brain cancer diagnosis. He comes from a huge family of 8 and loves spending time with them and his friends, which brought him to his wish, which is to have a “man cave”.
Isaiah would like a place where he can get away from it all and play video games, watch tv, hangout with family& friends and just enjoy being a teenager. He wants his man cave to be elevated on stilts, an idea he found on the show Treehouse Masters.
Ames will be enlisting the help of many of their sub-contractors and vendors alike to help make this wish become a reality. We will add more details and photos once the project is underway. Stay tuned.
Grant Schaeffer Awarded Randy Royer Foundation Scholarship
The Board of the Randy Royer Memorial Foundation is proud to announce Ephrata High School student Grant Schaeffer was awarded the first scholarship from The Foundation in the amount of $5,000.00. Grant not only met the scholarship requirements as determined by the Board but personally knew Randy as his U8 soccer coach. The Randy Royer Memorial Scholarship recognizes an Ephrata High School senior who plans to pursue a degree in Construction and Design Technologies, Automotive Technology, or Collision Repair and Restoration at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. Grant will be pursuing a degree from Pennsylvania College of Technology in the Architectural Technology and Sustainable Design field.
Randy Royer was raised in Akron and graduated from Ephrata High School. He continued his education at Penn State University earning an Associate’s Degree in Architectural Engineering Technology and a Bachelor of Science in Structural Design and Construction Engineering Technology. Randy started working for Ames Construction as a project manager and estimator immediately after college and remained there for 27 years until his sudden death in October 2016. Randy’s work was his passion and was proud to be a part of the Ames Construction team. We look forward to another successful “Livin The Dream” golf outing on September 17, 2018 to benefit the Randy Royer Foundation. Our goal is to remember and honor Randy, his legacy and to provide more scholarships in the future.
