The Ames Team Helps Works on Habitat for Humanity Build Day Project
June 5, 2008
Shell Busey's HouseSmart would like to recognize a team of 15 Ames Tile & Stone employees, clients and vendors who participated in an eight hour build day at the Habitat for Humanity build site in Burnaby, BC.
This Spring the team gathered for the Habitat for Humanity Build Day. After their safety briefing they were quickly put to work; nailing up and painting siding, building a retaining wall and installing simple solar pathway lighting. Each member involved in this project made a bridging effort to break the cycle of poverty and build affordable homes for famiies.
Habitat for Humanity Canada is a non-profit organization which mobilizes volunteers within the community to build affordable housing. The organization utilizes the community partners and 30,000 volunteers to promote homeownership as a reality for the hard working, low-income families in the Lower Mainland.
