Ducks up the River!

DSC 0029

We had lots of fun watching thousands of colorful ducks make a splash on the St. Mary’s River during the 34th annual Weigand Construction Duck Race to benefit SCAN this year! We had up to 15,000 ducks starting from the Wells Street Bridge and floating towards the finish line. In the end, we were able to help fundraise over $220,000 for SCAN!

For Children and their Families

DSC 0076

SCAN’s mission is to protect children from abuse and neglect by supporting families navigating through times of need. With the help of local businesses and people from all over our area, the money donated will go directly towards the services they give to the community. Their offering includes counseling, education, intervention programs, and prevention training. Here at Weigand, we are proud to be able to stand alongside SCAN; it’s an honor to partner with them in their charge to serve our community. With everyone’s support, their work is making it a safer, healthier place for children and their households to grow and flourish!

A giant THANK YOU to everyone who came out this year to watch the race, sponsor ducks, rally your support around SCAN, and advocate for a better future for kids in our community!

Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build 2018

Women's Build 2108

The Habitat for Humanity of Greater Fort Wayne Women’s Build 2018 was a success for the Weigand girls! 5 of our own took some time out of the office to assemble scaffolding, cut and install siding, and weather wrap houses in Fuller’s Landing last week. The neighborhood is coming together beautifully, and we can’t wait for next year!

It’s Almost SCAN Duck Race Time!

Ducks went on sale today for an event that is near and dear to our hearts here at Weigand Construction. Be sure to get your ducks in a row for the chance to win $1,000,000 and to benefit an amazing cause, SCAN, Inc.!
