Brasfield & Gorrie Volunteers Build Employment Readiness Classroom for Buckner

Thirty-two volunteers from construction firm Brasfield & Gorrie’s Dallas office served the community Friday by building classroom space for GED and employment readiness courses at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid. The classroom will help provide an improved learning space for Buckner International’s adult clients in East Dallas.

The Brasfield & Gorrie volunteers also sorted and bagged toys as holiday gifts for vulnerable children served by Buckner. This is the fourth year Brasfield & Gorrie has partnered with Buckner International as part of its ongoing corporate social responsibility initiative.

“Developing a workforce is key to strengthening a community. We are honored to build out the educational space at the Buckner Center for Humanitarian Aid to accommodate the organization’s GED and employment readiness classes,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Jason Weeks. “This work is a continuation of our relationship with Buckner International, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve our Dallas community.”
