Giving Back to Our Community

Giving Back to Our Community

RLC Engineering is committed to being socially responsible with our continued commitment to act justly and contribute to economic development; while improving the quality of life for our employees and their families and by serving the communities where we live and work.

As part of our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration, RLC employees were given the opportunity to give back to the community by participating in a Day of Volunteering. Earlier this year, several employees cleaned guest rooms and a common eating area at the Maine Chance Lodge and Retreat founded by the Travis Mills Foundation, while a number of others volunteered by preparing dinner at the Ronald McDonald House via their “Guest Chef” program. In late spring, many participated at the Betsy Ann Ross House of Hope for Women Veterans and their Children by performing yard work and interior renovations. Recently, a few of our employees painted apartment walls at the Volunteers of America – Northern New England’s Margaret Chase Smith House for independent living. Later this year, additional employees will participate at the Volunteers of America – Northern New England’s Cabin in the Woods Project for homeless veterans where they will help with grounds development and building a pavilion.

When not at the office, many RLC employees volunteer on their own time. Some of our employees participate in the Trek Across Maine, cycling 180 miles, over 3-days raising money for the American Lung Association. Others will run/walk a 5k and then cycle 50 miles by participating in the Dempsey Challenge to raise money and awareness for the Dempsey Center founded by Patrick Dempsey. Heck, one of our employees, along with 24 other volunteers, participated in the Portland Plane Pull where they pulled a FedEx Boeing 757, weighing over 72 tons to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
