Midland Habitat for Humanity
During the month of October, more than 300 Endeavor employees collectively spent 1,264 volunteer hours supporting the incredible work of Midland Habitat for Humanity. Endeavor volunteers ended up working on seven Habitat houses within the Cloverdale Development, making a generational impact on seven families, including 13 children, who will live in these homes. Tasks included raising walls, cutting and installing siding, weather proofing, power washing, and painting. In addition to home building, our generous employees also spent time organizing donated furniture, household, and construction items at the Habitat ReStore, Midland Habitat’s second chance retail store.
“This project came together with the support and leadership of many. Special thanks to our Endeavor Team Captains who served as the liaison and company leader for each of the 188 shifts over the two-week period,” said Ben Carter, Director of Land for Endeavor and Midland Habitat Board Member. “It was such a blessing for our company to come together to make a lasting impact on seven Midland families for many years to come.”
Midland Habitat for Humanity empowers people to build a better future for themselves and their families by completing financial and home maintenance training, building alongside volunteers, and by purchasing their homes with an affordable 0% interest mortgage. With this hand up, they achieve strength, stability and self-reliance they need to build better futures. During the volunteer project, Endeavor employees enjoyed meeting three new homeowners who showed up to put in sweat equity hours to help make their home a reality.
“We are extremely grateful for the partnership and effort Endeavor put into this special project to support local Habitat families,” said Joey Hopkins, executive director of Midland Habitat for Humanity. “For two consecutive weeks, Endeavor volunteers came ready and willing to work hard and do whatever tasks were necessary to build Midland families a place to call home. We are truly grateful for the number of hours spent supporting our mission.”
