Ending hunger. That’s the SF-Marin Food Bank’s mission. Yes, that’s a huge endeavor and SF Canstruction is here to pitch in. Thanks to Layton Construction’s generous sponsorship, we are helping the Food Bank provide 3,000 meals to those in need.
From headquarters in Salt Lake City, Layton expanded into Northern California last May after acquiring Fernandes and Sons in San Jose.
Layton in San Jose
Working in 39 states, Layton has built in nearly every industry through some intense highs and lows:
- 11,000 feet: elevation of Snowbird Ski Resort’s summit at Hidden Peak
- 25 degrees below zero: lowest winter temperature experienced while building in Alaska
- 1 a.m. to 3 a.m.: only time cool enough to pour concrete in Phoenix during summer
Layton Construction has sponsored and participated in Canstruction in other states and now with a home in Northern California, Layton continues that service tradition.
What drives this passion and community service?
“We missed the cutoff to form a Canstruction ‘build team’, but we still wanted to get our name out there while also giving back to the community where we live and work. Because the event is for such a worthy cause - with all of the canned food and money raised going directly to San Francisco Marin Food Bank - the decision to participate was a no brainer” says Whitney Walter, Vice President of Layton Construction in San Jose.
By supporting SF Canstruction, Layton is helping to bring healthy food to home-bound seniors and fresh food at pantries conveniently located in public schools so parents have easy access.
