When her daughters’ high school was dealing with declining enrollment, Holly teamed up with other parents and business people to form a non-profit foundation. Northlake Education Foundation supports the school in myriad ways, from scholarships to building improvements to professional workshops for students that were soon added to the curriculum.
More recently, Holly was able to merge her love of the construction business with her desire to help kids through Kids Building Wisconsin – Waukesha Expo. The event, held at Milwaukee Tool, invited more than 1,000 middle school kids to try their hands at things like mock demolition, assembling an air duct and building an Adirondack chair. Exciting stuff for fifth through eighth graders and gratifying for pros like Holly.
Another organization very dear to Holly’s heart is Center for Veterans Issues. After seeing what her brother went through after returning from the Army, she believes all veterans need a supportive place to heal and thrive
