The Torch Award is a prestigious award that is not just handed out to any business. In order for a business to even be considered a candidate, it must show good ethics with their customers and employees, demonstrate leadership, and show social responsibility. Aloha Construction, a family owned local roofing and siding contractor based in Lake Zurich, IL, was honored to receive this award by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) in 2017.
Aloha Construction is known not only for their construction work in the community but also for their charitable work. David Farbaky, founder of Aloha Construction and the David Farbaky Foundation, teamed up with Omni Youth Services to help a single mom and her 4 children go on a toy shopping spree. Another generous offer was to send a 12 year old boy, who had undergone five open heart surgeries in his life, and a group of his friends to a Chicago Bulls basketball game. They enjoyed the game from Aloha’s box suite.
There are certain criteria that a company must meet to qualify for this award; 6 to be exact. Aloha Construction met all criteria. The company must be leaders and committed to ethical practices, not only in their work, but in their personal life. Their communication must reflect their beliefs. The company’s leadership practices have principles that bring the organization closer to their purpose. Management practices establish a practice that is committed to the future. Their Human Resources department values their employees and provide opportunities for advancement and development. The organization is active in their community and other organizations in their industry.
Other charitable activities that Aloha Construction is actively involved with is donating $5 during an Illinois State University basketball game when there is an assist. This is donated to Camp One Step to help kids with cancer. They sponsor the Central Illinois Flying Aces Hockey team and have jersey giveaways for the kids at the game. They have also partnered with the Boys and Girls Clubs.
