If you are familiar with the Dude, you know we are crazy about our mission to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients. We also have that same passion to make a difference and give back in our community.
Last week FacilityDude team members had the opportunity to join Habitat for Humanity of Wake County on a large community revitalization project in Raleigh, NC. We were divided into teams and assigned to different projects including roof trusses and framing, roof repairs, painting, installing hardware, landscaping and cleaning up the job sites. It was a great experience to work side by side with the Habitat for Humanity staff to fill a need and improve the lives of several families in our community. It was also rewarding to know that one of the homes we worked on would be dedicated to the family before Christmas – a wonderful reminder of the meaning of the holiday season. We would like to express our appreciation to Habitat for Humanity for letting us volunteer; you are awesome and we thank you for all you do!
