Milgard Employees “Dig In” to Support Local Habitat for Humanity
June 11, 2019
Tacoma, Wash. (June 11, 2019) – Employees at Milgard Windows & Doors donated their time to support low-income families at a recent Tacoma/Pierce County Washington Habitat for Humanity Build Day.
A Tillicum neighborhood, developed by Habitat for Humanity, benefitted from the hard work of Milgard volunteers. Employees literally “dug in the dirt” laboring on a variety of landscaping projects. The team also laid tile and cleaned the durable and energy efficienct Milgard Style Line® Series vinyl windows, a popular choice for Habitat homes.
“Once again, our team of Milgard employees show how much they care for our local community,” said Tim Large, Milgard Community Action Team Chairperson. “Everyone who works on a Habitat build site, be that a first timer or a returning volunteer, comes away with a full heart and a sense of pride in their co-workers at Milgard Windows & Doors. In addition, the team at Habitat for Humanity of Pierce County always gives our volunteers great direction to adhere to our skill levels. Their mission of providing affordable homeownership opportunities is one that we can all appreciate.”
Over the past few years Habitat for Humanity's addition of affordable owner-occupied housing in Tillicum has made a positive difference. The community is thriving due to new residents who are taking an active role in the community and making improvements in their neighborhood.
“Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity was very rewarding for me,” said Terri Staeger, Sr. Accounts Payable Specialist. “It was great to be onsite and see what it takes to create a home for someone. Plus, we witnessed not one but two home dedications. It was very touching seeing the families officially receive ownership of their homes. To me these homes are more than just a place of shelter, they represent freedom and independence!”
This was the 7th year in a row that Milgard employees participated in a Habitat for Humanity Build Day.
