Chad Sherger, President of Sherger Construction and his team have thrown their full support behind Seniors Secret Service. A volunteer non-profit organization that has been providing cheer to isolated and lonely seniors since 1985. In 2016 this valuable group adopted over 4000 seniors at Christmas.
Sherger Construction is heading into their 3rd year supporting this worthwhile cause and along with another local business they adopt 20+ seniors each year. This is made possible through fund raising activities that take place all year long.
Along with Sherger Constructions contribution to their surrounding community there was also a recognition that there exists in other parts of our vast world an opportunity to give back.
Through return travel to the Ixtapa, Mexico area and the close connections formed with the people who work a the resort, Chad discovered that the living conditions for some of the people were very primitive.
Recognizing how fortunate we are it opened up an opportunity for Chad and his company to give back.
We met Clara de los Santos de Jesus and her young daughter Marisol selling peanuts on the beach of Ixtapa. Impressed by Clara’s work ethic and determination to provide a better life for herself and her family the build a home program began.
With the success of building the first home the decision was made to make the build a home program an annual event.
Sherger Constructions 2017 build a home recipient is Roberto Jimenez Mongay, his wife Lidia and their 8-year-old daughter Joseline.
Roberto and his wife, like all the people we have met in Ixtapa are highly industrious. Working at the resort six to seven days a week and often with double shifts, Roberto projected that in saving his tips he would be able to build a home where his family would be safe and secure in 20 years.
As the owner of Sherger Construction there was no better feeling then being able to tell Roberto and his family that they would have that home they dreamed of this year.
