A letter from CEO Al Baldwin:
Dear Friends and Associates,
I hope this letter finds you and your families doing well. It is with mixed feelings we write to inform you that the 24th Annual Stars & Stripes event in Cabo San Lucas has been cancelled due to COVID-19. It is our continued goal to give back to those charities that benefit annually from this event, however, we need to do so in a safe and healthy manner.
We in the residential construction industry are very fortunate to be considered an essential business and to be able to keep working. There are many other small businesses less fortunate who have employees that are struggling to feed their families during this pandemic. One of the Stars and Stripes beneficiary charities, South Bay Community Services, has recognized this current crisis and has stepped up to feed the families that are in desperate need. Prior to COVID-19, South Bay Community Services had a program that was feeding 450 people per month. Due to the impact of COVID-19, that need has skyrocketed to over 5,000 people per month and they need our help.
South Bay Community Services is efficiently using volunteers and purchasing food from the food banks, however, there is still a substantial weekly shortfall until everyone is back to work. We are financially supporting this cause and are reaching out to you, to invite you to join Baldwin & Sons to help raise the necessary funds to keep these families fed.
We are very grateful for your support in the past and hope you can help us with this current crisis. Together we will get through this, especially if we pull together and help one another.
