News - Chaney Enterprises Makes Donation to Fire House

Earlier this summer, Chaney Enterprises donated fourteen yards of ready-mixed concrete to the Marlboro Fire House for the construction of a patio area adjacent to the building. Previously a rough patch of dirt and gravel, this spot now features several picnic tables and a grill for the on-duty fire fighters to enjoy.

The Upper Marlboro Fire Station at 14815 Pratt Street employs 15 firefighters on both a career and a volunteer basis. The volunteers usually work the weekend and night shifts, which go from 5pm to 7am, while the career firefighters typically work during the day. The patio area is not only a social point for all the firefighters as they await a call to emergency action but it also serves to boost team spirit and morale, a critical point in any fire department.

Beyond the priority Chaney Enterprises places on Outstanding People, Quality Products, and Superior Service, the company works enthusiastically to better the quality of life for local citizens. A legacy of its founder, Babe Chaney, Chaney Enterprises firmly believes that part of its responsibility as a corporate citizen is to serve its neighbors. The Chaney Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Chaney Enterprises, orchestrates much of the 6% of net annual profit the company gives to non-profit and community organizations.

This latest fire house donation is Chaney Enterprises’ small expression of gratitude to the men and women who work daily for our public safety. “They stand by 24 hours a day, seven days a week just so that help is nearby if and when something goes wrong for Chaney or for our neighbors. It is a privilege for us to be able to make their on-duty time a little more enjoyable,” says Jessica Gallimore, Marketing Manager for Chaney Enterprises.

Chaney Enterprises is a construction materials supplier servicing all of Southern Maryland with concrete, sand, gravel and stone, concrete block, and construction materials and supplies. The company operates seven ready mix concrete plants, four sand and gravel facilities, and a 19,000-square-foot contractor-grade construction materials supply store throughout the State of Maryland.

On behalf of the entire Fire House, which is run entirely by donation, Fire Chief Tim Clark has expressed great appreciation to Chaney Enterprises.
