The “Community Builder Award” is an award the District presents to local individuals, businesses, and organizations for their volunteer service, sponsorship, promotion of programs and events, outstanding service in the interest of the District, and for other contributions significant to McKinleyville’s quality of life.
December 2020, District staff identified Hooven & Co., Inc. as a worthy recipient of this award for their dedication to the community through donations and service. Hooven and Co., Inc. was established in 1977 and has been dedicated to making McKinleyville a better place. The Hoovens were born and raised here, attended school, and played sports in McKinleyville. They have dedicated their time with volunteering and fundraising for over 30 years and always bring a positive attitude.
They are one of the Districts resources when it comes to emergency responses and have gladly responded when in need.
