Since it’s founding in 1983, McKenzie Commercial has completed thousands of projects in Lane County. According to Todd Glenz, the company’s president, the most enjoyable and satisfying projects were those that made a real
difference in the community. These include work with local nonprofits including ShelterCare, Relief Nursery, Womenspace, The Science Factory and Looking Glass. Last year, McKenzie Commercial was the lead company for the renovation of ShelterCare’s Heeran Center, and this year the company begins planning for the renovation of ShelterCare’s new home at 499 W. 4th. Alongside these contractual relationships with ShelterCare, however, the company has also been a generous supporter.
In the 1990s, they donated their time and skills to create the space for the Children’s Resource Center at the Family Housing Program. This year, McKenzie Commercial has offered to donate their services once again to combine and renovate two single occupancy units at Family Housing to create a larger unit suitable for housing families – supporting our goal to serve more families at that site.In October, employees at McKenzie Commercial also collected two huge boxes of socks and 25 smaller boxes of toiletries for use by people in our programs.
