One-for-One Program Results in 250 Hour Commitment with Orange County Habitat

Branded Group Founder and CEO Michael Kurland recently announced the company will, this year, volunteer 250 hours with Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, the amount of time a Habitat OC family dedicates to volunteer as “sweat equity.” Joining forces to provide homes to local families in need, the two organizations continue to change the lives of so many in the community. According to a recent Freddie Mac survey, home ownership means meeting personal financial goals, but more importantly, it signifies being part of a community to raise your family and create lasting memories.

“Branded Group has been a great example of how organizations develop a culture of compassion within their company through their One-for-One program,” Sharon Ellis, President/CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, said. “Branded Group has supported both our homeownership and home repair programs by volunteering on multiple new construction and repair projects. We appreciate the support that they continue to provide to help us accomplish our mission to build homes, community, and hope.”

With Branded Group’s award-winning social impact program, One-for-One, each completed client service call equates to one minute of volunteer time with Habitat of Humanity of Orange County. Since 2016, Branded Group team members have volunteered over 225 hours. They have also participated in multiple Team Build Days, dedicated time in the Habitat OC ReStores, and recently volunteered during a Women Build Day.

Branded Group is also proud to sponsor Habitat for Humanity of Orange County’s Leaders Build Day as a Hammer Sponsor. On May 18, the company’s senior leaders will gather with other local business owners to help build new or renovate existing affordable Habitat OC homes.

“Branded Group’s team is driven by its vision to build a conscious business that inspires future humanitarian leaders,” Kurland said. “Participating in Team Build Days with community business leaders is a perfect example of how we hope to inspire others.”
