At Mallett Buildings, we believe in the importance of serving and investing in our community by getting involved and giving back. Our CEO, Lee Mallett, has made it a priority to actively invest in our community through initiatives such as hosting Veteran Fun Days, donating to local causes, and partnering with well established groups in the area.
Lee believes in the impact a caring community can make. This belief is reflected in the creation of Mallett Cares, an initiative that serves as a guiding principle for the company to give back to our communities and build a better bayou state. With over 15,000 structures built across Louisiana, Southeast Texas, and Southwest Mississippi, Lee Mallett believes that giving back is the most meaningful work he will ever do.
For decades, Lee Mallett has been dedicated to building Southwest Louisiana, but what most people don’t know is his unwavering commitment to bettering the people in the community where he lives. For almost a decade, Lee has worked with troubled and addicted men to get them clean and sober and make them a valuable part of our daily lives. The reason behind this commitment is very personal and serves as a constant motivation for Lee Mallett to be a part of finding a solution to a disease that destroys families and lives forever.
VETERANS FUN DAY

THE AVENUE OF FLAGS
It’s an honor and a privilege to donate a building to the wonderful Avenue of Flags organization.
In January of this 2019, about 1,100 flag poles were stolen from them. After we heard about that, it was a no-brainier to provide them a safe and secure place to keep all of their equipment!
We believe in investing in our community!
College athletics are not only a past time, but a passion for most!

“When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. We currently have over 30 SWLA children waiting to be matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister. Are YOU the one who will defend their potential?”
