Milgard Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity to Build Low-Income Housing
August 09, 2017
Tacoma, Wash. (Aug 8th, 2017) – Employees at Milgard Windows & Doors donated their time to Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity by participating in their annual Build Day, preparing homes for low-income families to move in.
The Milgard team spent a Saturday working together at The Woods at Golden Given, which is Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity's largest neighborhood to date. Homes in this community are sold by Habitat to partner families who do “sweat-equity” hours working alongside volunteers to help build their home and those of their neighbors. Milgard volunteers installed window screens, laid bathroom tiles, hung doors and added trim. They also worked outside on laying sod, weeding and digging fence post holes.
“My son and I had a great day taking part of this amazing project of building a home,” said Jennifer Reed, Recruiting & Talent Management for Milgard. “The staff who trained us to do the work were patient and did a great job of showing us what to do. We learned how to lay tile like a professional! I enjoyed seeing my son develop confidence in learning new skills as well as being part of the community.”
Milgard has provided sponsorships and participated in Habitat Build Day projects since 2012. Milgard® Style Line® Series vinyl windows were used at The Woods at Golden Given due to their ENERGY STAR certification, durability and low maintenance requirements.
“A big thank-you to our long-time supporters from Milgard for spending time with us,” said Sami Head, Habitat Community Engagement Coordinator. “We love any ‘window’ of opportunity to work with them.”
