100 Acts of Service

Register for the Centennial Celebration!

Celebrate the CAGC Centennial by participating in an act of service! We are challenging our members and ourselves to honor our 100th year with a good deed in their community. No act is too small! Examples include:  a community food drive for displaced workers, adopting a highway, raising donations to support the workforce shortage, and more. 

All participants will be featured in our Charlotte office and here on our website!  For more information, please contact Chelsea Andujar.

Meghan Ketterman: #SenecaStrong

At 3:30 a.m. on Sunday, April 12, 2020, Seneca, South Carolina was ripped apart by an EF-3 tornado nine football fields wide with 160 MPH winds. The town was hardly recognizable by the time daylight came. CAGC Member Meghan Ketterman of Contract Construction spent the next days and weeks rallying to support the town she calls home by arranging cleanup efforts, delivering supplies and generators, working to raise funds and providing comfort and support – one of many who are #senecastrong.
