“Michigan succeeds because of Michiganders who go above and beyond to serve their communities and lift up others,” Whitmer said. “This year’s winners get things done even when nobody's looking because they know that every contribution makes a huge impact."
“We are proud to recognize this remarkable group of Michiganders who are an inspiration when it comes to helping others,” said Michigan Community Service Commission Executive Director Ginna Holmes. “Their service has strengthened communities and made our state more resilient.”
Barton Malow was recognized in part for its annual Community Week, during which all team members are invited to volunteer at pre-scheduled activities for charities near their offices and jobsites. In 2022, Community Week included more than 800 Barton Malow volunteers at 107 different volunteer activities in 14 states and two countries. The volunteer time totaled more than 3,500 hours, with 2,000 of those hours happening in Michigan communities from Monroe to Midland and Detroit to Grand Rapids.
