RBJ Gives Back: Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston “Build Day”
Earlier this week, a group of Richards Barry Joyce & Partners team members had a memorable experience volunteering at a “build day” with Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston. The event was part of Habitat’s excellent “Trade a Day in the Office” program that allows groups to get out of the office to help build safe and affordable homes in the Boston area. Habitat for Humanity is a terrific organization that is “dedicated to building simple low-cost homes by forming partnerships with low-income families in need of decent and affordable housing.”
Working in Roslindale, the eight person RBJ team was joined by three Habitat for Humanity workers, as well as two people who will be moving into one of the Habitat for Humanity homes. As part of the program, recipient families must complete 300 hours of “sweat equity”, either by working on their future home or by serving in some other capacity.
As Emma Geldmacher said, “this was a great opportunity for each of us to give back to the community.” RBJ is very pleased to support Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston. If you are interested in finding out more about, or donating to, the organization, please visit: http://habitatboston.org/.
