There are many organizations throughout southern Minnesota that have benefited from generous donations provided by Holtmeier Construction.

Another important cause at Holtmeier Construction is "the pink truck". It is a specialized highly visible pink dump truck that is used for fundraising efforts. Annual profits generated by the truck are pledged to help fund cures for breast cancer, dementia and other diseases affecting our neighbors, friends and loved ones. The truck is also available for afterhours fundraising events which have gained much attention in the Mankato and surrounding areas. You won't miss it if you see it go by.
