(TROY, MICHIGAN, July 29, 2015) Eighteen Crestmark employees, family members, and friends volunteered with Macomb Habitat for Humanity to refurbish a house in Eastpointe, Mich., on Saturday, July 25, 2015. They spent the day painting the interior and exterior of the house, installing siding on the garage, replacing the floor molding, landscaping, and building/installing new closets. In addition to the volunteered time, Crestmark also donated a $5,000 grant to further help the community.
This event is organized through the Community Involvement Committee at Crestmark. The committee coordinated a date, gathered the volunteers, ordered t-shirts, set-up food, and organized the details of the event with Habitat for Humanity.
“We had a great time helping the community and the deserving family that will live in the house,” said Angela Kitter, client analyst, and member of the Community Involvement Committee at Crestmark.
Crestmark employees who participated are: J Wesley Barrett, Josh Beauvais, Jesse Coots, Heather Felske, Kelly Jonkhans, Angela Kitter, Paul Masserang, Mark Matheson, Linda Sun, Chad Weeder, Wynn Miller, Sue Hickey, and Gus Mattia.
“This was a great opportunity to help the community, and also a great way to build teamwork with coworkers we don’t interact with on a regular basis,” said Josh Beauvais, vice president and account executive, who has volunteered for Habitat for Humanity event for the past five years.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that provides low-income families the chance to purchase safe and affordable housing. Crestmark has worked with Habitat for Humanity for the past eight years, and plans to continue to support Habitat in the future.
