Venture Construction Group of Florida donates thousands of dollars to the ALS Association every year. “Part of our company mission is to help people in need. Philanthropic giving is an absolute must. My dad was diagnosed with ALS in 2010 and passed away in 2012. He was a great man and instilled in me the importance of giving back. Watching him endure this was painful. It totally changed my life. I am determined to help beat this disease by supporting ALS research to help find a cure,” says Steve Shanton, CEO and founder of Venture Construction Group of Florida. According to the ALS Association, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The disease affects the nerve cells (motor neurons) that control a person’s muscles. As the disease causes these motor neurons to deteriorate, the brain loses the ability to start and control voluntary muscle movement. “Having a construction and restoration company headquartered in Florida means we help a lot of property owners rebuild after catastrophic storm events. We definitely see some of our nation’s worst storms here. I am passionate about the storm repair and insurance restoration business because it allows me to help people rebuild after disaster strikes. I have the same passion for life and my business. Work with passion, give with passion, and always take the time to help others,” says Steve Shanton, CEO and founder of Venture Construction Group of Florida.
