Ways Empirehouse gives back to the community
Empirehouse supports charitable work in our area including Feed My Starving Children, Toys for Tots, Red Nose Day, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and National Engineers Week.
National Multiple Sclerosis Society
At this year’s all staff Annual Safety AWAIR training held Thursday, June 1, 2017, from 6AM-9AM, Empirehouse employees received a hard hat sticker commemorating the Company-wide AWAIR Safety Day training that also honors the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Several times a year, Empirehouse gives back to the community through serving events and contributing to charitable organizations. More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide including several Empirehouse family members and friends. For the Summer 2017 quarter, Empirehouse has made a donation to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Feed My Starving Children
On March 30, 2017 a group of Empirehouse Fabrication, Field, and Office employees (along with some of their family members and significant others) volunteered at Feed My Starving Children. In addition to helping hungry Haiti children, we discovered how much we can accomplish when we work together, the joys of comradery, and the gratitude to live in America. Story»

Toys for Tots
Imagine what it’s like to be a child without a gift at Christmas? That’s what it is like for thousands of children and teens. In 2016, Empirehouse wanted to do something about this, so we joined a great cause: Toys for Tots.
On December 19, 2016, we had lots to celebrate when the Marines pulled into our parking lot. Over $8,500 in new, unwrapped toys were donated by Empirehouse employees and our generous suppliers, friends and families for boys, girls, and teens who would normally go without a gift at Christmas. There were so many donations, we wondered if they all would fit in the truck!
Red Nose Day!
In 2015 and 2016 Empirehouse supported RED NOSE DAY by donating non-perishable food items to the Second Harvest Foodshelf. Not only did we have a good laugh wearing red noses, non-perishable food items were donated to people in need within our community.
National Engineers Week
Since 2001, Empirehouse, Construction Specifications Institute (CSI), and the National Engineers Week program have brought local 6th grade students an awareness of the role engineers play their everyday lives to consider engineering as a future career.
Using gumdrops and toothpicks, students have fun building their own geodesic domes while learning basic engineering principles of compression and tension. The National Engineers Week program introduces engineering to an average of 200 6th grade students each year.
