Community Outreach

Here to help serve the community.

Since the founding of Fred Olivieri Construction Company in 1959, the Olivieri family has understood the importance of being involved and giving back to the local community. That mindset has been a cornerstone of the company for decades and is ingrained within our core philosophies. Through our community outreach program, we strive annually to serve various local organizations through volunteerism, sponsorship, membership, and contributions. At Fred Olivieri Construction Company, we take pride in knowing we can, and do, make a difference.

GiGi's Playhouse

GiGi’s Playhouse Canton is fulfilling the dream of the Down syndrome community of having a location where individuals with Down syndrome of all ages have a place to call their own, where they feel safe and can explore their abilities through proven programs with support and celebration. All programs are delivered by a team of trained volunteers and offered at no-cost to families so that cost is never a barrier to receive resources, support and services. The Fred Olivieri Construction Companies hosted our annual "BBQ For A Cause," inviting employee to join us for a cookout and raise money for a non-profit organization doing great work in our community. The fundraiser featured exciting raffle prizes, an Ax throwing truck, and some delicious barbeque. All proceeds raised at our BBQ For A Cause went directly to supporting GiGi’s Playhouse Canton. 

Akron Canton Regional Food Bank

Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank

Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank provides food and other essential items to hunger relief partners within its network, serving eight Northeast Ohio counties. A large group of volunteers spent 2.5 hours labeling, sorting, inspecting, and repackaging over 5,000 pounds of food. It came out to the equivalent of us feeding 4,885 local families in need. The facility we volunteered at, built in 2021, serves not only as a food warehouse for storage and packaging, but also a food pantry for local individuals to come and receive food. The area that the food bank is in is considered a “food desert” – this term describes an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food.

Pathway Caring For Children

Pathway Caring for Children is a local organization that strives to help children and families realize the possibilities of their lives through foster care, adoption, and mental health. Our company hosted a "BBQ For a Cause" where all employees were invited to join us for a cookout on our campus. We enjoyed socializing, raffle prizes, and a 50/50 drawing. The event included an Ax Throwing truck for entertainment, and all proceeds raised at the BBQ For a Cause were donated directly to Pathway Caring for Children.

Stark Parks

Stark Parks

Stark Parks manages 15 parks, 4 lakes, and over 120 miles of hiking, biking, and equestrian trails, totaling over 8,000 acres of land in Stark County. The parks provide beautiful landscapes for our local community to enjoy countless outdoor recreational activities. With such an overwhelming amount of ground to upkeep, our staff was thrilled to partner with Stark Parks for an opportunity to do some spring maintenance work. Our volunteers spent time cleaning up trash, washing trail signs and painting different sections of trail path.

Sam Center v3

Sam Center

Serving Area Military is a group of veteran supporters that have come together to be the conduit of the community's love for our veterans. They utilize community involvement to discover needs and find solutions. Our volunteers have enjoyed the past several years donating our time and talent at both of their locations. The SAM Center in Massillon operates a free commissary of non-perishable food items, meat, personal hygiene items, cleaning supplies, paper products and baby/toddler necessities like food and diapers. The SAM Center in Canal Fulton offers an abundance of resources - guitar therapy, restorative yoga, outdoor recreation, and more. It is a privilege for us to give back to the veterans who have given so much to our community and our country.

Hammer and Nails 2

Hammers & Nails

Hammer & Nails serves Stark County individuals who are elderly, single parent, mentally/physically challenged, or financially burdened through aiding with an array of home repair and maintenance services. Interior and exterior carpentry and interior and exterior painting are their main areas of focus. Our employees volunteered their time and talents through community involvement at (2) different homes for individuals in need. We spent four days removing and replacing the porch floor, repairing stairs, and replacing railings.

Domestic Violence INC

Domestic Violence, Inc.

DVPI offers safety, compassion, hope and healing to victims of domestic violence and their families in Stark County. In recent years, they’ve sheltered 397 women, men, and children in their two emergency shelters and provided more than 13,969 nights of shelter. Our employees donated socks, toiletries, non-perishable foods, underwear, laundry detergent, books, stuffed animals, pet food and gas cards. In addition, we hosted a company event at Top Golf with different raffles and prizes. All proceeds from this community involvement event went directly to DVPI.

Refuge of Hope

Refuge of Hope

Refuge of Hope enables homeless men to receive hot showers, meals, clothing, and access to counseling in a safe and clean dormitory-style shelter. In addition to being a men’s shelter, they also provide daily hot meals to men, women, and children. Our employees donated 160 blankets and home-made holiday cards that we distributed to those in need at the Refuge of Hope’s evening holiday meal.

Pegasus Farms v2

Pegasus Farm

The farm has a 2-week shut down period, and during this time is when they need to get their deep cleaning done throughout their facilities. Our company volunteers spent 2 hours sweeping out barns, power washing windows, scrubbing down rails, cleaning out and organizing equipment. The mission at Pegasus is to create a community that holistically supports and empowers people with diverse needs through therapeutic equestrian programs, vocational services, and recreational and social activities.

House of Loreto

House of Loreto

The House of Loreto is designed, and operated to care for older people, regardless of their level of need, in a homelike, dignified atmosphere. Our company provided Easter baskets to be delivered by the Easter bunny himself (one of our employees had a bunny costume.) Each resident received a basket that included lotion, toothpaste, toothbrushes, crossword books, tissues, chocolate bunnies, and a hand-made Easter card. The most unique gift we were able to give each resident was a 12x7 crucifix made from wood and plexiglass at MRO Built. A handful of employees then took their personal time and effort to hand cut and place iridescent contact paper over each piece of plexiglass so that the crucifix would transform into a beautiful sun catcher.

Junior Achievement v2

Junior Achievement

The Junior Achievement Bowl-A-Thon raises money that goes directly toward funding Junior Achievement for the schools through our community involvement. We then participate in an afternoon of bowling that includes games, door prizes and fun at the alley.
