A tightening economy impacts the good work of Saint Louis Children’s Hospital. Castle Contracting has long had a close association with the hospital, both as a contractor on site, and as a benefactor. That relationship was amplified in 2009 when Rich Ledbetter joined the SLCH Development Board, and worked closely with the hospital to create Kidstruction.

Because large charitable gifts are harder to find, Kidstruction is a different kind of outreach, it’s just $1 at a time. In December 2009, Castle trades-persons were asked to consider donating $1 per hour, for each hour worked over a single workweek. Overwhelmingly the good people of Castle participated at more than 90% and some even donated up to $5 per hour worked.
