October 2018 – When the local career and technical education school in Salem, Oregon reached out to RiverBend Materials for a concrete donation for a project they were working on, RiverBend Materials offered up something even better.

Gregg Smith, Cody Henderson, Cody Sanders, Bruce Dausel and Mike Miller devised a plan to partner with them by delivering two loads of concrete, one of which was donated and helping the students learn how to pour the concrete. Each day a different RiverBend employee worked with the students to create concrete forms for small sheds that the students would later sell for a profit to fund their program.

The students enjoyed learning something new and were surprised at how rewarding it was to create something with their own hands.
