Building Communities Through Scherrer Cares

We embrace community impact and meaningful change at Scherrer Construction. That's why we founded Scherrer Cares, a non-profit, dedicated to giving back to our communities. Our donations support a variety of causes and organizations including food pantries, pet shelters, school programs, and local fundraisers annually.

In our commitment to build kindness, we initiated the Buddy Bench Program, an anti-bullying effort. Through this, Wisconsin schools receive personalized buddy benches, fostering kindness and nurturing friendships. Since the start of our program, Scherrer Cares has implemented over 100 benches into schools throughout Wisconsin impacting thousands of kids!

What our Buddy Bench Recipients Say

"Unfortunately, bullying takes place in one form or another on almost every school campus. The Buddy Bench provides a visible symbol that this type of behavior will not be tolerated and that every student has a right to a safe learning environment, both physically and emotionally, when they enter our school buildings."

-Wayne Anderson, Williams Bay School District

"Our Buddy Bench acts as an always present visual reminder to be kind. The Buddy Bench symbolizes making good choices, being inclusive, and taking care of one another. Having the bench on our playground is one more way to remind kids to make positive choices, and strengthens the school culture as a whole."

-Brian Incitti, Turtle Creek Elementary

"Educating our students, truly means helping create individuals who can independently think deeper, analyze, and problem solve in both academics and social settings. These skills are crucial for their development, and for us, the buddy bench in an important piece to that intricate puzzle to help them be college and career ready, both as productive people and successful students."

-Matt Behringer, Burlington Area School District
