Honoring Those Who Have Served on Memorial Day: METALCON’s Commitment to Giving Back

Memorial Day is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women of our armed forces. It is a day to honor those who have laid down their lives in service to our nation, ensuring the freedoms we enjoy today. However you choose to observe this holiday, it is important to reflect on its true meaning and find ways to give back to those who have given so much.

METALCON has exemplified the spirit of giving with its annual give-back program. Each year, METALCON goes beyond its mission of promoting industry excellence in metal construction by dedicating significant efforts to give back to the local community where the event is being held.

METALCON’s Annual Commitment to Veterans

Check Presentation to Semper Fi & America’s Fund at METALCON 2023 in Las Vegas.

At its annual event, METALCON makes it a priority to support charitable causes, with a particular focus on organizations that aid veterans. Over the years, METALCON has built a strong tradition of giving back, raising funds, and providing much-needed assistance to those who have served in the military.

Last year, METALCON successfully raised $3,500 for Semper Fi & America’s Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive support to combat wounded, critically ill, and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. This partnership is a cornerstone of METALCON’s charitable activities, showcasing their unwavering commitment to veterans.

Partnering with Semper Fi & America’s Fund

Semper Fi & America’s Fund is a highly respected organization that offers a range of programs designed to help service members from all branches of the military. From financial assistance and adaptive housing to specialized equipment and transportation, the fund addresses the unique needs of veterans and their families.

METALCON’s partnership with Semper Fi & America’s Fund is a natural alignment of values and mission. Both organizations are dedicated to making a tangible difference in the lives of those who have served. METALCON is once again joining forces with the fund as this year’s annual “give back,” aiming to surpass last year’s fundraising efforts and provide even greater support to our veterans.

Because of METALCON’s continued commitment, the organization can provide innovative solutions to its service members, veterans, and military families. Last year’s fundraising efforts directly impacted four heroes, four family members, and the issuance of four grants.
