DENVER, Colo., October 20, 2017 – Mount Saint Vincent, a leading provider of clinical treatment for children with severe emotional and behavioral challenges due to trauma, mental illness, abuse, or neglect, announced that Mortenson Construction donated $35,000 in labor and materials to replace the sidewalk adjacent to the nonprofit’s Denver campus. The project included 500 feet of sidewalk, 200 feet of curb, and a sidewalk drain chase.
“As soon as I heard about Mount Saint Vincent’s predicament, I told them we’d take care of it,” said Mortenson Construction Project Manager Jessica Ostoyich. The company absorbed the cost of all materials and labor. In addition, the City of Denver waived all permit fees.
“It’s extremely generous and caring of Mortenson to donate the time and skill to make this happen,” said Jim Greer, Associate City Inspector for the City of Denver. “It’s great for Mount Saint Vincent and it’s great for the community.”
Mount Saint Vincent’s Facilities Supervisor Craig Peterson said, “It’s been an absolute blessing. We owe Mortenson Construction a debt of gratitude.”
