Support for the community is integral to the corporate culture of ESI Builders and Remodelers. “We understand and see first-hand the positive impacts that local and regional charities have on the quality of life in our communities. At ESI, we see it as our responsibility to help where we can with funding, skilled labor, or other talents that can continue to raise awareness and progress in many ways”, says ESI’s co-owner, Allan Priest.
Each year, ESI connects with and directly supports nearly a dozen different non-profit charities with financial donations, sponsorships, and hands on expertise. For example, in April 2019 the ESI team once again supported critical facility maintenance and improvement projects for Kindred Spirits Fawn Rescue, a local non-profit that cares for and rehabilitates orphaned deer fawns in the greater Sacramento area and Sierras. ESI President, Dave Sipes notes, “With potentially over 100 injured or orphaned fawns coming through this volunteer-run program each year, the infrastructure of enclosures and facilities can become worn and damaged — so we are happy to help rebuild and maintain them.” Diane Nicholas, the Director of Kindred Spirits, is no stranger to ESI Builders — she is a talented interior designer and has been an integral and valuable part of ESI’s team. “Diane is amazing!” Says ESI Project Manager, Maria Giorgi, “She is fantastic at helping our clients achieve their dreams through just the right interior design and material selections for their remodel or custom home projects.”
Similarly, in 2018, the ESI team built a private workspace and conference room within the administrative office of Hands For Hope, a non-profit that promotes, trains, and organizes youth to get involved in the community through charitable projects and other good works. “Their large open space was an open ‘bullpen’ of 5-10 volunteers and staff and they had no area for private conversations or phone calls – so everyone stepped outside in the weather when needed. That’s just wasn’t workable”, said Dave Sipes. So, ESI solved the issue and increased their productivity by designing and building a separate and well-insulated private room (all at no cost to the non-profit).
Among others, a few worthy non-profits in the area that ESI Builders continues to support each year include:
