C202P Donates more than $2,400 to Footsteps Shoe Drive

November 7, 2016


The C202P team thrives on challenges.  Not only have they accepted the challenge to build 27 miles of new SR202L and expanded I-10 freeway in Phoenix, Arizona by the end of 2019, they also stepped up when Brian Williams, Structures Superintendent, issued a challenge to match his donation to the Footsteps shoe drive for Arizona’s foster children.

It didn’t take long for the emails to start flying with people not only accepting but increasing the challenge. In just one day, the team raised $2,000. The final tally was $2,412 in cash which Janet Singleton, Procurement Manager, used to buy 215 pairs of shoes.

“I am very proud of our team’s generosity in providing 215 pairs of shoes to support local foster parents and their children. Helping the community in which we work is very important to the Fluor-managed Connect 202 Partners, LLC,” said Walter Lewis, III, Fluor’s C202P Project Director.

Darren Wood, Senior Project Engineer; Nick Pfeifer, Equipment Manager; Ryan Clickner, Construction Outreach Coordinator; and Tom Suttles, Field Engineer, load shoe boxes for delivery.

Team members delivered the shoes to the local Mattress Firm store to be collected by the Foster Children’s Rights Coalition. Check out www.fosteringrights.org for more about Footsteps and foster kids in Arizona.
