Lafarge Quarries Recognized with Community Relations Award


Lafarge North America Inc.


Two of Lafarge North America's Illinois aggregate quarries, Cave in Rock and Joliet, were recently awarded with the IAAP (Illinois Association of Aggregate Producers) Community Relations Award.


The IAAP Community Relations Award recognizes Producer Member companies whose community involvement and support activities have enhanced the public's perception of the member's aggregate operation and the aggregate industry in general.


Lafarge's Cave in Rock quarry was recognized for its community efforts around wildlife habitat restoration, working with residents to help clean up the banks of the Ohio River and donations of money, materials and services to community groups.  Similarly, the Joliet quarry award was awarded for the site's community efforts and donations of 63 tons of materials to Habitat for Humanity, 560 pounds of can goods for Morning Star Mission Ministries, and employees' labor to clean up the shoreline along the Illinois River.


"We truly appreciate being recognized by the IAAP for our community efforts," said Matthew Dantinne, Vice President and General Manager for Lafarge Midwest Aggregates.  "It is part of our operating philosophy to give back to the communities in which we operate.  We enjoy being part of the communities and continue to look for opportunities where we can help make a difference", continued Dantinne.
