Boxley Block, Brick, and Hardscape Centers embraced the spirit of giving this season and collected enough toys to support a record number of children for Toys for Tots! We collected donations at our Lynchburg location throughout November to support the children in our community. The donations also went to Campbell, Bedford, Appomattox, and Amherst counties.
Childhood hunger is a significant problem in our community. While schools provide food insecure children meals during the week, many go hungry during the weekend. That’s why Boxley is supporting Food for Kids, a non-profit organization that provides food-insecure children at Goodview, Huddleston, Moneta, and Montvale Elementary Schools in Bedford County, VA, with food for meals over the weekend.
October is Careers in Construction Month, making it an ideal time to consider a career with masonry.
Masonry jobs allow workers to make a good living for themselves and their families with competitive pay and excellent benefits that provide Virginians with peace of mind in knowing their future is secure.
According to the construction industry advocacy group Build Your Future Virginia, there is a demand for more than 250,000 craft labor jobs in the state, including nearly 20,000 in the masonry field. Masons work with brick, concrete blocks and natural stones to build attractive, durable structures and surfaces.
