Giving Back this December

December is a month known for it’s giving spirit. Filanc Construction is dedicated to contributing to the community in many ways and enjoys giving back this.

Every December Filanc gives back during the holidays by participating in Filanc Toys for Tots December 2017Toys for Tots, Adopt-a-Family and the Mooonlight Beach Heritage Tree Lighting. This  year we had amazing participation across the board from our office staff and jobsites who generously donated toys for those in need.  Toys for Tots, San Diego accepts new, unwrapped toys for children ages infant to 12 years old. Giving back to the community where we work is so important to us, it is nice that all donations raised in San Diego, stays in San Diego.


Filanc Toys for Tots December 2017Our very own Ana Martinez leads the company to Adopt-a-Family during December. The mission of the Salvation Army and this program is designed to assist families who are in crisis as a result of unemployment, homelessness, medical issues or other difficult circumstances, and who otherwise wouldn’t have the resources to celebrate the holidays. This program provides a wonderful holiday experience for families at a critical time in their lives.We had an out-pouring of participation to get a family of five, not only the necessities of every day life, but a little extra to help make their holidays more enjoyable.

Over the past 20 years, Filanc Construction has helped the community of Filanc Moonlight December 2017Encinitas celebrate the start of the holiday season by decorating the Moonlight Beach Heritage Tree. The tree stands over 50 feet in the air and in recent years Filanc needed to bring in a bigger crane in order to place the star tree topper and string the lights downward to fill the enormous tree. The tree has grown so large it has received its own address, 406 4th street, after the need to install its own meter for this spectacle. The lighting is sponsored by the Downtown Encinitas Mainstreet Association, local residents come to support the set-up, a local electrical contract donates time to ensure it goes off without a hitch, and of course we at Filanc contribute time and equipment. The community as a whole comes together during the holidays to put a little extra cheer in this historic beachside city.
