This past year has been challenging, to say the least, on not only our employees and stakeholders, but certainly our customers and indeed our country. But while the COVID-19 pandemic has in many ways changed the manner in which we work, the way we interact with each other, and the means by which we engage our customers, it has also served in a noticeable way to bring us closer together, strengthening the notion that Bingaman & Son Lumber Company is truly a family of employees giving our very best each day to serve our customers and our community.
Service to our customers and community is the very core of who we are at Bingaman, and the pandemic crisis, which continues in its ferocity, has only proved to be a catalyst to further define and embolden our commitment to service. We come to work each and every day sharing our time and talents to serve one another and our valued community of customers. We leave work each day confident that we have worked tirelessly to better ourselves, our company, and our lumber products. We do this, of course, all for a much greater purpose than ourselves, and to make a lasting, positive impact on our community.
One very tangible way in which our service to the community manifests itself is in the organizations we support through both charitable giving and volunteerism. So, here we are highlighting many of those organizations Bingaman not only supports and holds dear, but which we know are doing great things to serve others and better our world.
