Community Support Through Charitable Giving
"Philanthropy definition: altruistic concern for human welfare and advancement, usually manifested by donations of money, property, or work to needy persons."
"Upon this Rock We Give" is a Christmas celebration outreach program to provide food, clothing and gifts to the children and families of the Antelope Valley and High Desert communities. We are accomplishing this through donations from companies in the decorative and construction aggregates industry.
We and our partnering vendors, contractors and even competitors are providing some much needed help to those who have the least ability to help themselves, the children in our communities.

Yes, we are celebrating Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, the son of God, our Lord and Savior, but our effort to reach out does not end with only those who celebrate this event. Children of all faiths and non-faith need our help. The very fact that you are on this web site means you have some discretionary income. This is an opportunity to buy some materials that you are interested in and have us direct the money to children in need. In fact, the staff of California Building Material Supply is a mixture of Christians and Muslims; we work with a mutual respect for the faith each person holds and practices. Poverty, illness, hunger, lack of proper shelter, and neglect do not know national or regional boundaries and certainly are not confined by faith or lack thereof.

We are starting this program late in the Christmas season and are going to struggle to just help within our zip codes and school districts, but as the charitable resources of Upon This Rock We Give grow, we will go beyond Christmas and expand to other vital faith celebrations. We will reach past our own individual barriers and personal limitations with purpose from the strength of support from individuals and businesses in these industries.

Upon This Rock We Give
Heather Andrews, owner, and Christopher Gilcrest, manager of California Building Material Supply are partnering up with Grace Resources, a non-denominational charity that works through a network of multi-faith churches and groups. In the heavy winter rain of February 2017, our first community project was the installation of a hard rock driveway for Grace Resource Center. To help the homeless and those in need in the Antelope Valley, Grace Resources has two mobile buses consisting of medical and dental units that come weekly to the center in Lancaster, California to help people. Those buses got stuck in the muddy service driveway and had to be towed out. They could not come back until the road was repaired. We partnered with CalPortland Materials to install a new Class II limestone road base for an emergency service road repair.

Now, 2 years later, we are partnering with Grace Resources to build pathways for children to enjoy the Christmas holiday season and spirit, and possibly much more. Make no mistake, in the consideration of your support as a member of the building materials industry or as contractor/consumer, wherever you are in the USA, we can work together to make an impact in your community as well as ours. Yes, we are ready to go right here, but have the ability to work with credible (yes, we all know there are hustle groups out there) organizations in every state.

Upon This Rock We Give is derived from Mathew 16:18....Jesus says to his apostle Peter "And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church".......Rock is also a vital metaphor in the Holy Quran......Barren Rocks Versus Fertile Gardens: Al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:265 “….And the likeness of those who expend their wealth, seeking God’s good pleasure [believers], while they are certain that God will reward them, is as the likeness of a garden on a height: heavy rain falls on it, and thereupon it doubles its yield of harvest; and if it does not receive heavy rain, soft rain suffices it. And God sees all that you do. ”...........Thus the name of the charitable cause fits as firm and strong as any cornerstone could possibly be.
