Community Service is a way of life for J.S. West

As a service company, we care about others and search for opportunities to make a difference in the communities in which we work, live and do business. J.S. West and its family of employees are deeply committed to volunteer programs and charitable contributions that help address a myriad of needs within a vast number of nonprofit organizations.

Complementing our donations and volunteer work, J.S. West participates in countless community activities that benefit the folks we meet every day. Each time we participate in a charity breakfast making omelets, contribute lumber and labor to Habitat for Humanity, donate gas for first responder firefighting training or reach out with groceries and gifts to people in need during the holiday season, we demonstrate the heart of our company by supporting what matters most – the well-being and enrichment of those around us.
