RIDGEWAY, S.C., May 4, 2020 – BOMAG Americas raised nearly $7,000 during the CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020 show in Las Vegas, Nevada, to support Construction Angels, a 501(C)3 non-profit organization. Construction Angels was founded by Kristi Gibbs and their mission is to provide immediate financial assistance and grief counseling to children and spouse left behind when a construction worker has a fatality on the job site. Construction Angels offer construction scholarship opportunities to qualified applicants, and additional scholarships to surviving children of fallen workers. They also focus on promoting job site safety awareness.
To support Construction Angels, BOMAG Americas dedicated a portion of their CONEXPO 2020 booth space to run a t-shirt campaign. BOMAG asked attendees to give a minimum five-dollar donation in exchange for a BOMAG-branded t-shirt. There were 14 different t-shirt styles available and they all featured the outline of a BOMAG machine or service icon on the front and a fun product- or service-related saying on the back. Some of the sayings were “I Eat Asphalt for Lunch” (Mills), “Good Vibrations” (BMP 8500 Trench Roller) and “If I Can’t Fix It, No One Can” (Service).
“BOMAG is excited to be partnering with Construction Angels on this, and hopefully future campaigns. We had an overwhelming response to the promotion at the show and are happy that BOMAG was able to donate nearly $7,000 dollars to help families of road construction workers who have lost their lives in work-related accidents. It’s a great cause and it reflects BOMAG’s core initiatives promoting awareness jobsite safety awareness.” said Dena Jenkins, BOMAG Marketing Communications Manager. BOMAG plans to continue their relationship with Construction Angels so watch for their next campaign to support the cause.
