ST. LOUIS (September 29, 2017) – The St. Louis construction industry -- including builders, engineering and architectural companies -- raised $405,000 for St. Louis Children’s Hospital during KIDstruction Week 2017. Of the 153 participating companies, 53 matched their employees’ gifts dollar-for-dollar or made a corporate donation of $10,000 or more. This year more than 2,500 trades workers and employees donated $1 for every hour worked during KIDstruction Week in August.

“As an industry, we have contributed almost $2 million since 2011 to key programs that make St. Louis Children’s Hospital a leader in pediatric healthcare,” says Jeff Faust, principal at Environmental Consultants, LLC, and chairman of KIDstruction Week 2017. “We continue to demonstrate our dedication to advancing this non-profit hospital’s work of protecting the health and well-being of children and families in the St. Louis region.”

KIDstruction Week proceeds support the hospital’s pediatric neuro-critical care program, Healthy Kids Express mobile health program, art therapy and many other services necessary to help children heal from illness and injury, and enjoy healthy childhoods.

“KIDstruction Week is a tremendous effort by the St. Louis construction community,” says Malcolm E. Berry, chief development officer, St. Louis Children’s Hospital Foundation. “Just as companies across the region build the future of St. Louis, they help us build momentum for the transformation of child health. We are honored and humbled that these hardworking men and women have chosen to join us as Guardians of Childhood.”
