Branded Group Completes Habitat for Humanity Bi-Coastal Build
Employees in Suffolk County, NY and Orange County, CA Participate in Projects for Families of Veterans
Branded Group employees on the east and west coasts recently participated in the company’s first Habitat for Humanity bi-coastal build project. Representatives from Habitat for Humanity of Orange County, CA and Suffolk County, NY were on hand to assist the company’s volunteers in projects that will provide affordable and sustainable homes to local families.
“It’s a privilege for our teams in the New York and California offices to be able to work with our valued partner, Habitat for Humanity.” Michael Kurland, Branded Group CEO, said. “These important projects change lives.”
The California team assisted with the interior and exterior painting of two units that will become homes for two deserving veteran families in Orange County. The New York Team hosted a home build project for a yet to be determined owner in Mastic Beach, Long Island. The team assisted in securing the home’s foundation with hurricane straps and framing.
Staff members from the respective Habitat for Humanity chapters were on hand to guide the teams in their assigned projects. The non-profit organization provides the tools and materials to ensure that the construction activities follow local regulations.
“Branded Group’s vision is to build a conscious business that inspires future humanitarian leaders,” Kurland said. “This bi-coastal build project, along with our other Habitat for Humanity builds, is how all of us to stay true to this vision and give back to the communities in which we do business.”
Branded Group’s award-winning One-for-One social impact program is the foundation for the Habitat for Humanity partnership. Every completed client service call is transformed into one minute of volunteer time. In 2018, the company committed to volunteering 250 hours.
