Ringing in the Season of Giving: Huff Construction Team at Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Kickoff

A Joyful Start to Giving: Huff Construction at the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Event

At Huff Construction, we’re as dedicated to building strong communities as we are to constructing outstanding buildings. This commitment was brightly displayed at the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Kickoff in Modesto, California, a festive event ushering in the holiday giving season.

Event Highlights

The Red Kettle Kickoff is a hallmark of the Salvation Army’s holiday fundraising, and the #HuffTeam was thrilled to be part of it. Our team’s energy and commitment to community engagement shone brightly, adding to the event’s festive atmosphere.

The Red Kettle Kickoff reminded us that our role in the community goes beyond physical construction. By participating, we contributed meaningfully to the social fabric of our community, upholding our commitment to “Building Excellence” in every aspect of our work.

Celebrating Huff Metal Buildings’ Decade of Support for Veterans Through Saint Andrews Legacy

At Huff Construction, we take immense pride in our community contributions, particularly in supporting those who have served our nation with bravery and honor. As we celebrate Veterans Day, it’s a perfect time to highlight a decade-long journey of commitment and compassion spearheaded by Tom Cosentino of Huff Metal Buildings, an integral part of the Huff family.

A Decade of Making a Difference

For ten years, Tom Cosentino has been the driving force behind a remarkable initiative, supporting the Saint Andrews Legacy Organization. This initiative is more than just a charity; it’s a testament to the healing power of sports and community. The Saint Andrews Legacy Organization harnesses the magic of Saint Andrews and the beloved game of golf to offer inspiration and motivation to ill and injured veterans, contributing significantly to their mental health and overall well-being.

The Power of Golf

The game of golf, often celebrated for its tranquility and focus, has been a beacon of hope and rehabilitation for many veterans. Through the annual golf and dinner event at the Del Rio Country Club, organized meticulously by Tom, participants experience not just the joy of the game but also a sense of camaraderie and support that is vital for their journey toward recovery and stability.

Impact Beyond the Greens

The impact of this initiative extends far beyond the golf course. Over the past decade, these events have raised over $600,000, a monumental contribution that aids in the betterment of veterans’ lives. This funding goes towards programs that directly assist veterans in their path to recovery and reintegration into civilian life, ensuring they receive the support and recognition they deserve.

Expressing Our Gratitude

As we commemorate this Veterans Day, we at Huff Construction, along with the wider community, extend our deepest gratitude to all American veterans. Your sacrifices and service have shaped our nation, and it’s our honor to support you in return. The success of the Saint Andrews Legacy Organization, championed by Tom Cosentino, is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to our veterans.

We invite you to join us in this noble cause. Let’s continue to uplift and support our veterans, not just on Veterans Day but every day. Every contribution, big or small, makes a significant difference in the lives of these heroes.

Taking on the Corporate Challenge for First Tee – Central Valley

Being a successful company goes well beyond our daily operations. For Huff Construction, it’s also about giving back and supporting the communities in which we live and operate.

We had the opportunity to once again support First Tee – Central Valley in their Corporate Challenge Fundraiser event. First Tee is a youth development organization that enables kids to build the strength of character that empowers them through a lifetime of new challenges. By seamlessly integrating the game of golf with a life skills curriculum, they create active learning experiences that build inner strength, self-confidence, and resilience that kids can carry to everything they do.

Pictured is Garrett Ardis, Project Manager at Huff Construction, participating in the event. This successful fundraiser raised nearly $130k!


At an event hosted recently by Huff Construction and our business partners for the Village at Gray’s Crossing including Verakin Capital, Alia Corp, and Compass-Oldham Group, the Tahoe Fund was awarded a $10,000 donation to aid in its efforts to support environmental projects in the Tahoe Basin.

“On behalf of the Tahoe Fund, we are so thankful to the Abbate family, Huff Construction, and Verakin Capital for their donation,” said Amy Berry, Tahoe Fund CEO. “As they celebrate the start of construction of this new community, it is heartwarming to see them also focus their efforts on supporting the Tahoe environment.”

The developers of The Village at Gray’s Crossing are committed to improving the region and contributing to environmental projects that benefit the community at large. Through this new partnership with the Tahoe Fund, they anticipate additional fundraising efforts as the development continues to contribute to projects that benefit the Basin and the surrounding region for generations to come.

“Being a successful company goes beyond our daily operations. For Huff Construction, it’s also about giving back and supporting each other, our planet, and the communities where we live and work,” said Gary Huff, CEO of Huff Construction. “The Tahoe Fund has been actively working on projects that enhance the sustainability of the Tahoe Basin and they’re the perfect organization to support as we look for meaningful ways to give back to our community.”

Since it launched in 2010, the Tahoe Fund has been a leader and convener in the completion of key environmental projects in the Tahoe Basin, focusing on projects designed to restore the forest, improve lake clarity, support more sustainable outdoor recreation, provide transportation solutions and create more stewards of the Tahoe environment. Flagship projects have included the acquisition of Johnson Meadow and the completion of the Tahoe East Shore Trail.

The Huff Difference

The Huff Difference

This April, I will have been a part of Huff Construction for 18 years.

During my time here I have noticed certain things that really do make our company stand out from our competitors. I believe these points of difference are why we have been successful over the past 45+ years, and they are also what will drive our success going forward.

A Team Approach

In a typical construction ‘process’ a client will bring a project to the commercial contractor on paper, and the information will be used to develop pricing and assemble the team to construct it. At Huff, many of our projects are for repeat clients, and our team is trusted from the beginning to negotiate and develop the projects.  Whether we are using a traditional delivery or a design-build delivery method, the team approach that we lead on behalf of our clients ensures efficiency, time savings, and cost controls. The team approach is definitely a core value to success here at Huff.  Additionally, our Huff team itself is key to our success as we work together to deliver our projects.

Consistency Across All We Do

At Huff, we execute a variety of projects using a wide range of building materials. The ways in which we deliver our projects are customizable to meet the needs of our diverse customer base.  Whether a project is large or small there are often many similarities. Many projects require the same scope of work: concrete foundations, frames, electrical wiring, plumbing and more.  While the budget, time of construction and the building materials may differ, a solid, systematic approach is always essential. At our core, we are a general contractor committed to building projects of outstanding quality and value no matter their size or value.

Commitment to “The Huff Way”

Every employee that works at Huff is trained to take ownership for their work and their role here at the company.  This could include everything from their participation during the design phase of a project, to their input towards our processes, and to their performance at a job site.  Our team approaches every project as if they were building it for themselves. This level of commitment towards a project translates into success.  Many of our employees have been a part of the Huff Team for many years which shows how committing to “The Huff Way” benefits our work environment. Our clients also recognize our commitment which is why they return to us to build their next project for them.

Building Excellence from Start to Finish

At the end of the day, we want our clients to recognize that Huff Construction builds excellent projects in a way that can’t be offered by other contractors. Our goal is to have a high-quality finished building but we also strive for more. We want the entire process, from initial budgeting to turnover of keys, to be excellent. We do our best to make sure that our project’s entire process is an experience unique to Huff Construction.

I am proud to have been part of the Huff team for the past 18 years and I look forward to seeing what the next 18 years have in store.
