Berglund Construction to Provide OE Clients with Construction Experiences

With the excitement building for the construction of Opportunity Enterprises (OE) new Lakeside Respite Center after the groundbreaking of the new facility on May 25, 2022 – the contractors for the Center, Berglund Construction, want OE clients to be more than passive participants of the building.

Berglund Construction will invite five men and women with disabilities to kick off the project and actually operate an excavator to help “dig in” and begin prepping for the building of the center.

“Opportunity Enterprises is all about inclusivity, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA). It is obvious from the plans of their new center to the construction of an accessible treehouse. We were very excited to hear we were awarded this project. Now we want to contribute to the culture of IDEA that OE prioritizes. What better way to start this project by giving the experience of building to a group of people that might never have the opportunity to operate machinery like an excavator,” states Jeff Berglund, Vice President of Berglund Construction.

With this opportunity, Opportunity Enterprises Board of Directors took it a step further by offering corporations or individuals to sponsor this experience for a client – and receive recognition in the new building once constructed. With only five (5) highly sought sponsorship opportunities of $5,000 per sponsor, a donor will be able to give an individual who utilizes OE’s services a lifetime opportunity to be an excavator for one day – and contribute to a Center that is being built for them!

A sponsor will receive the unparalleled joy of meeting their sponsored “excavator” and witness the event live. There will be images shared via many outlets including social media, press releases, and organizational website. Proceeds will support the Lakeside Respite Center’s $6.7 million campaign, and sponsors will receive permanent recognition in the new building.
