Community Relations Excellence!
Recently, Peckham Materials’ Pleasant Valley Quarry received the Community Relations Excellence Gold Award from the National Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association (NSSGA). Peckham was one of only eight Gold award recipients in the country. This award recognizes facilities that have demonstrated achievement in efforts relating to special events, charitable contributions, volunteer projects, advocacy efforts, relationship building, quarry education, and media relations. Many of the community activities hosted by Peckham Materials included blood drives, food drives, annual open houses, sponsorships, and donations to rebuild the local library after a devastating fire. Peckham’s long-time employees and local Pleasant Valley residents Donna Siggelkow, Kevin McCarthy, and Cliff Weigelt traveled to Washington, DC to accept the award at the association’s annual Legislative and Policy Forum which took place September 20-23. Siggelkow, McCarthy, and Weigelt also participated in a small poster session after the award ceremony where they met with other association members to share Peckham’s work in Pleasant Valley and learn about the work of other award recipients.This award recognizes the hard work and dedication of so many Peckham employees that contributed their time and effort in 2021 working within our company to not only support the Pleasant Valley community, but also educating and enhancing the perception of our facility and industry. While the Pleasant Valley Quarry team is honored to have been selected to receive this award, this award is also representative of Peckham Industries’ foundational dedication and commitment to serving local communities.
