Let’s Build Community: Associates Participate in 6th Annual Founder’s Day


​Stewardship—giving back to and supporting our communities—is one of our core values. On Friday, April 21, we celebrated our 6th annual Founder’s Day, recognizing the day Gerry Rauenhorst signed his first contract to build Zion Lutheran Church in Olivia, Minn.

“This is a great event,” said Tim Murnane, president & chief executive officer of Opus Holding, L.L.C. “Giving back to the community was something that was very important to Gerry. If you look at our core values today, we believe in the same thing—being good stewards and giving back to the communities where we do business.”

Partnering with two great organizations, Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together, associates company-wide took the opportunity to get out of the office and give back. Find out what associates did across the country and in your community.
