Sunrise, Florida (PRWEB) June 07, 2016
Work zones, especially highway work zones, have astonishingly high rates of accidents and work fatalities. When Kristi Ronyak was at World of Asphalt in 2008, she encountered someone asking for funds to support the family of a worker killed in a construction accident. Ronyak donated, but when she went to follow up several months later, she struggled to find the charity in question. Realizing there was an unmet need for these families, Ronyak founded Construction Angels, a group of volunteers who work to positively influence the quality of life for the spouses and children of construction workers who have been killed on jobsites. The mission of Ronyak’s group is to “provide money to help [the families] meet current bills… and get them involved with grief counselors.”
Ronyak’s background is in construction marketing, but she resigned from her job in January 2016 to focus on getting Construction Angels operating on a national level. She has branched the organization out into George and Ohio. Her goal is to create 50 state chapters in the next 10 years.
Full details of the Construction Angels story, as well as contact information for anyone looking to get involved in the project, can be found in the South Florida edition of The Who’s Who in Building & Construction. The magazine also includes a regional buyer’s guide for anyone looking to hire or buy, as well as coverage of local projects, stories like Construction Angels’, and advice from experts on marketing, estimating, and bidding. For those looking to buy or hire face-to-face, there will be a Who’s Who Showcase in Ft. Lauderdale this week.
The Ft. Lauderdale Who's Who In Building & Construction Showcase takes place on June 7th at Florida Panthers Arena (BB&T Center). For more information about the Showcases, please visit http://www.ShowcaseLaunch.com.
