American Excavating Corp. is proud to support our local communities. We actively support local school athletic programs, local police and fire departments and the Greater Derry Boys & Girls Club.

We have often donated time and equipment to local boy scout efforts and most recently provided assistance with the new Iraq Veterans Memorial and rebuilt the parking area for The Upper Room, both of Derry.

The Lannan brothers have also given their personal time to serve on local boards and committees such as the Derry Planning Board and the Derry Economic Development Committee. Other volunteer commitments include numerous hours of coaching local youth athletic teams.

American Excavating is proud to give back to the local communities.
