Building Community is Essential
As a champion of community-oriented initiatives, Madden has always been actively involved in the empowerment of underrepresented and historically disadvantaged groups.
Madden’s Role in the Community
As a family-owned business that’s been in operation since 1988, Madden has developed deep roots in the local area. We’ve always embraced the importance of giving back to individuals and organizations in our community, with special attention paid to those that are typically underrepresented in the trades industry. That’s why we actively support and encourage minorities, women, veterans, individuals struggling with homelessness, and at-risk youth – among other disadvantaged groups – to consider the trades industry as a path towards financial independence and economic stability.
It’s a core belief of the Madden tradition that communities can blossom through cooperation, mutual respect, and shared goals. We firmly believe that a community is only strong when ALL members are supported and empowered. That’s why we’ve been closely involved with some of the most impactful community-oriented programs and organizations since we first opened our doors to the public. These meaningful relationships continue to this day. We’re proud to consider ourselves a member of this wonderful community and will continue to do our part to help strengthen it.
