Construction Angels, a south Florida-based non-profit, was created to facilitate access to financial services and grief counseling for immediate surviving family members of construction workers who have lost their life while working on a jobsite.
In 2018, Construction Angels had affiliate chapters in four states. Today there are twelve Construction Angels chapters serving Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland/DC, Michigan, Nebraska, Ohio, Virginia, Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming. CEO Kristi Gibbs’ intent is to have a chapter in all 50 states within the next 10 years. To assist with this goal to expand nationwide, Cheryl Ritter, formerly the Damage Prevention Manager for Sunshine 811, now serves as National Marketing Director for Construction Angels.
In August 2018, a Scholarship Program was launched by Kristi and Richie Gibbs to provide additional aid to surviving children for continuing education. Construction Angels is now accepting applications in Florida, Maryland/DC, and Michigan.
Construction Angels Board of Volunteers donates their time to the cause because they believe in what Construction Angels does for the families and how important this one-of-a-kind charity is to the industry.
We all know how important safety is to the industry and for the people we work side-by-side with every day. We encourage you to find an organization or volunteer for a cause that means something to you. Whether it is industry related or not, one small gesture can mean the world to someone and may just change their entire day.
Infrastructure Resources is donating a gift to Construction Angels, on behalf of the Subject Matter Experts who donate their time and talent to provide educational content for the CGA 811 Excavation Safety Conference & Expo.
