Fort Myers, FL (August 21, 2023) – Helping drive the success of Heatherwood Construction Company is its commitment to the community.  Nowhere is that better illustrated than at the Dr. Piper Center, where a donation of supplies and volunteer hours helped create a new patio area for the Fort Myers non-profit, which empowers seniors to create community impact.

With the help of several community partners, donating all the supplies and volunteering their time, Heatherwood Construction Company renovated the patio at Dr. Piper Center, tearing up old, moldy concrete pads and replacing the area with new pavers, planter areas, picnic tables and umbrellas, along with a fresh coat of paint on the entire building. Heatherwood Construction Company donated and assembled the two weather-resistant picnic tables with umbrellas and installed a new lock for the door leading to the patio. Employees teamed up together to paint the courtyard on Aug. 19.  The patio is important for the Dr. Piper Center. Many of its events, like training lunches and programs, take place there.

“This means a lot. My heart and soul are in community services,” said Jo Lucarelli, project manager for Heatherwood Construction Company. “I wanted our company to grow into doing more things like this. Not only is it a great human thing to do, but it is also good team building. There also is value in the more you do for a community, the more people respect that.”

The companies that partnered with Heatherwood Construction Company and donated materials and labor include:

Suntech Electrical Contractors, Inc. and Tom Czajkowski: Security light.

Impact Group, LLC and Kyle Barrett: Removal of existing concrete slabs.

CL Noonan Disposal Inc.: Dumpster.

Creative Hardscapes and Cade Middleton: Pavers and installation.

Ryan Hammond Inc. and Rudy Cox: Paint and labor.
