Greater Rochester Awards Recognizes Non-Profit Staff, Executives, Volunteers, and Programs That Make Our Community a Better Place to Live
Jim Taylor, CEO of leading regional general contractor TAYLOR – The Builders, has always gone beyond the typical commitment to his local community. Earlier today that exceptional work and community dedication earned Jim a place as an honoree in the Community Champion category at the 2013 Greater Rochester Awards.
“Over the last several years, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to do things I love, working with fantastic people for the benefit of my neighbors and friends who are facing a tougher road than myself. The truth of the matter is that none of these opportunities would have been possible without the support and dedication of my family and co-workers,” says TAYLOR CEO, Jim Taylor. “Together we’ve been able to accomplish many great things, all while building a successful business and making a meaningful impact on our community.”
Jim’s clear-cut commitment to building a better Rochester has raised more than $400,000 for AutismUp; challenged him to defy gravity by rappelling 21 stories down the First Federal Plaza to support Urban Scouting; put over 40 hours/month as a driver and certified first responder with the Pittsford Volunteer Ambulance; raised money and built awareness with Heritage Christian Services to ensure that people with developmental disabilities continue to have the highest quality care; and worked with the First Presbyterian Church of Pittsford to build dorms for the Rehema In Step Children’s Foundation in Kenya.
