That’s why we have quarterly safety barbecues where all employees without a safety violation in the prior year are eligible to be rewarded with gift cards and cash prizes up to $500.

We also recognize that our people are what make us successful and we will continue with our goal to make sure each and every employee gets home safe to their families. Our Safety Committee meets regularly to discuss new ideas on ways to improve our safety culture.

(June 2013) HPS has been a longtime supporter of local charities. Over the years HPS has stayed involved in donating financial resources and numerous volunteer hours to such worthy local causes as Habitat for Humanity, ACS Relay for Life and Memorial Hospital’s Ronald McDonald House, which opened on June 4, 2009 to serve local families with severely ill children.
With the help of our employees and vendor partners, HPS was able to raise over $1000 for the 2013 Walk for Kids event held on June 1st at the CALM facility.
The event was a great success in helping Ronald McDonald House to raise close to $200,000 for ongoing operations in the Kern County community.

(Novermber, 2008) Donations poured in Thursday to the Bakersfield Ronald McDonald House, which is under construction on the campus of Bakersfield Memorial Hospital.
When complete, relatives of sick kids receiving care at Memorial may stay overnight or take a breather while little ones receive medical care. Work may be done by late spring.
Les DenHerder, owner of plumbing company HPS Mechanical, gave a $100,000 gift. The family-owned business marks its 50th anniversary in 2009. To celebrate, DenHerder said the company and its 240 employees want to give back to the community.
And that’s not all: The firm offered to provide the plumbing and labor at the house.
The charity also received:
$50,000 from the Golden Empire McDonald’s Co-operative.
$23,325 from the Bakersfield Condors.
$16,000 from the Volkslauf Committee of the Marine Corps League.
The 1,200-square-foot building donated by Bakersfield Memorial Bakersfield, is the sixth Ronald McDonald House in the Southern California region, and the 285th in the world.
It will feature a kitchen, laundry facilities and computer stations. Kern’s McDonald’s owner-operators helped make the house a reality.
“McDonald’s is the best friend that any charity could possibly have,” said Vince Bryson, executive director of the Los Angeles Ronald McDonald House. Of Bakersfield, he said: “I have never quite seen a community like this — so caring, so giving and with no expectations in return.”
Relatives would pay $15 per night to stay at the house, and local Rotary Clubs would cover those costs if a family could not. Bakersfield Fire Capt. Quincy Sloan knows firsthand the comfort a Ronald McDonald House offers. He and his family stayed at the Ronald McDonald House in Los Angeles when his son Evann needed care.
“When it’s your child, it can be devastating,” he said. “Families are going to come through here and they will all have the same feeling. They will say what I’m to say to you: thank you.”
(June 2015) HPS has partnered with McCarthy Builders and other San Diego Contractors to help Habitat for Humanity build affordable housing for deserving families in El Cajon, CA. These families must qualify in advance by showing need for better housing, financial ability, and commitment through volunteer hours to help Habitat for Humanity with other ongoing and future projects.
Habitat has set a lofty goal for the contractors involved, asking them to build four homes in only five days. Supporting affordable housing has been a long time goal for HPS and its employees and we are proud to be part of helping the El Cajon community better the lives of some of its finest citizens.
