Community Involvement‏‏ Outside of the Construction Industry

Project Safe

ETL Construction is an annual corporate sponsor and works with the nonprofit Project Safe to fight domestic violence. Bill and Kim Kraeling attend Groovy Nights each year and are committed to being part of the solution to end the violence in our local area and beyond.

Prince Avenue Christian School (PACS)

ETL Construction actively donates both time and money to various PACS programs, including but not limited to Wolverine Booster Club, Academics & PACS Fine Arts programs. We proudly support their vision of honoring God, pursuing excellence and to disciple students through their ministry.

Girl Scouts

Bill and Kim Kraeling's daughter was an active Girl Scout as a child. They annually make contributions and purchase boxes of cookies each year to continue to help support the Girl Scout mission of building courage, confidence and character and help make the world a better place.

Boy Scouts

ETL Construction is excited to invest in the leaders of tomorrow while supporting scouts in our neighborhood. Our donations help support ongoing operations and future capital expenses at the local and national level.


Our President and CEO participated this year in the annual Career Day in April as a speaker and as a mentor for the program. This program helps students better prepare themselves for their career interests so they can learn more about the career options that are available to them.


ETL Construction is committed to being involved in kids’ lives – from supporting them at their sporting events to listening to them talk about what’s important to them. As a financial donor, we help kids consider the direction of their lives and offer inspiration and hope for their future. Our son Robert really enjoys spending time with his YoungLife leader and participating in YoungLife programs. Kids are dramatically impacted when these caring adults support them and share God’s love with them. Because their YoungLife leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose. We support this as the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will impact future decisions … careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised. This positive growth stems from the time when a YoungLife leader took time to reach out and enter their world.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA)

FCA is touching millions of lives. ETL Construction is happy to have a small impact on the world by making an annual donation to the FCA. The FCA is touching millions of lives, and values integrity, serving, teamwork and excellence. All of which are values that all members of ETL Construction live out in their daily lives.
