Volvo Construction Equipment is shining a light on its community-focused efforts with The Building Tomorrow Project – an initiative that encourages involvement and action to create a more sustainable world in which all have access to clean water, housing, proper nutrition and education.

Case Construction Equipment has donated a skid steer to Wichita Habitat for Humanity, expanding the manufacturer's relationship with the international non-profit organization dedicated to improving lives through affordable home ownership. Globally, Habitat for Humanity has helped build, renovate and repair more than 600,000 decent, affordable houses sheltering more than 3 million people worldwide.

As a result of the sale of its Gold Rush excavator, Volvo Construction Equipment has contributed $290,000 to two nonprofit organizations — Building Homes for Heroes and Habitat for Humanity. Volvo introduced the excavator to commemorate the 10th season of Gold Rush on Discovery Channel.

In celebration of Women in Construction Week, Road Machinery & Supplies Co. sponsored a Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity build on March 3, 2020, in Oakdale, Minn. Taking part in the build was the Minneapolis/Saint Paul Chapter of The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) as the chapter celebrated Women in Construction Week, March 1 to 7.

It's amazing what can happen when companies come together to raise money for a great cause. To celebrate 10 years of Discovery's Gold Rush television show, Volvo designed a special edition EC200E excavator, which was sold at Ritchie Bros.' premier global auction in Orlando, Fla., to an online buyer from Belgium for $290,000.

One such business, Doggett Machinery Services, recently demonstrated its commitment to the east Texas communities that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey nearly two years ago.

Habitat for Humanity volunteers began working Jan. 16 to remove building materials such as doors, windows, cabinets and light fixtures from several UDOT-owned homes in Midvale.
