     TEMPE, ARIZ. (May 21, 2019) – Engineering consulting firm Terracon presented a check for $10,279 to Kids at Hope, a Valley organization focused on youths 3-18 that “empowers child and youth serving institutions to transform their cultures through a cultural strategy that proves all kids can succeed, no exceptions.”

Terracon raised the money through its annual golf tournament. This year it was held in March at the Legacy Golf Club in Phoenix and fielded 124 players.

Terracon presented the check to Kids at Hope at its Annual Youth Development Master’s Institute’s Dean’s Recognition Lunch on May 6 at the Embassy Suites, Phoenix/Scottsdale.

“If it takes a village to raise and educate a child, and it does, Terracon is demonstrating through corporate philanthropy how everyone can contribute to that understanding,” said Rick Miller, Founder and CEO of Kids at Hope.

The vision of Kids at Hope is that every child is afforded the belief, guidance and encouragement that creates a sense of hope and optimism. It is supported by a course of action needed to experience success at life’s four major destinations: home and family; education and career; community and service; and hobbies and recreation.

Terracon is an employee-owned consulting engineering firm with more than 5,000 employees providing environmental, facilities, geotechnical, and materials services from more than 150 offices with services available in all 50 states.
