Each of these lives brought strength to the CGI family, knowledge of the tasks, and leadership in the industry. Their contributions to our team will be missed.

During this time, we have received an overwhelming interest in ways our industry friends can help immediately support the families that have lost loved ones. This is why this page was created, to help those who are wanting to help others. The funds collected will be dispersed among the affected families to help alleviate the financial burden that has been placed upon these families during such a difficult time. The donations will help with practical support for the family, inclusive but not limited to assistance with child care, cleaning services, meals, or other necessities that the family may need while they are grieving. Please use this platform and express your condolences. If there are tangible items that you would like to donate, we ask that they are dropped off at Concrete General's office - 8000 Beechcraft Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20879 during the times of 9 am - 3 pm, M-F.

The Concrete General Family extends our deepest thoughts and condolences to the families and loved ones of those affected. We appreciate your thoughts for our employees and their families during this time of loss.

We remain committed to making our industry safer and more secure for all workers, and we will continue to work towards this goal.

On behalf of the Concrete General, Inc. family, we thank you for your generous donation.
