Kitchell Celebrates its Founder with Over 1,000 Hours of Community Service

Kitchell recently celebrated the spirit of its founder, Sam Kitchell, through a variety of community service projects

255 of its employees from jobsites, offices, and project teams in Arizona, California, Texas and Washington volunteered during the inaugural Founder’s Day, which took place from Sept. 5-16.

Without any specific guidelines other than volunteerism, Kitchell employees organized groups to support low-income families, at-risk children, Veterans, cancer prevention, suicide prevention, kids’ mentoring programs, kindness outreach projects and school improvement projects, among other causes. In addition to scheduled team activities, employees and family members participated in service activities on their own, all in the name of Kitchell’s founder.


The variety of activities and participants proved a great way to network with each other, get to know our communities and rally around one unifying force: the legacy of its innovative founder.

During the course of the Founder’s Day efforts…
