Horrocks Gets Involved: Charities and Volunteering

Horrocks Engineers started as a small consulting firm in Pleasant Grove, Utah, offering just a few services to the American Fork/Pleasant Grove communities and local governments. Now a full-service civil engineering firm, Horrocks knows our service doesn’t end with civil engineering, it includes improving the community as well. Giving back to the community helps remind Horrocks where we started.

Over the years, Horrocks has been involved in multiple events that have had a positive impact on the children and schools in our communities.

As a company, Horrocks seeks to actively support education by volunteering time and providing monetary donations. Over the past few years, Horrocks has donated to local colleges and scholarship funds. These donations go toward education and improved school equipment.

Combined with donations to colleges and universities, Horrocks has participated in events such as the “All-Together Shootout with Jimmer Fredette,” where former Brigham Young University basketball player Jimmer Fredette shot 100 three-pointers to raise money to build a park for children in Orem, Utah and for programs that promote inclusion and kindness among children.

However, volunteering doesn’t end with company service. Employees of Horrocks also give back to the community in their own time and ways.

Horrocks employees volunteer within their local school systems and communities. The scope of employee volunteer work ranges from serving on school boards, being a math tutor for middle school students, and presenting at career day. Career day activities consist of teaching and explaining engineering terms to the students, and then applying what the students learned to their regular school work. One activity is to discuss basic concepts of bridge design, and then help students build their own small-scale bridge.

Horrocks has remained connected to the communities that initially supported them by giving back through service. As Horrocks continues to expand, we hope to maintain our current relationships and foster new ones by building and growing our tradition of service.
