Baker’s Waterproofing Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity
Last summer, the Baker’s Waterproofing team got their hands dirty for a good cause. As part of their companywide Build Together 2023 initiative, 15 Baker’s employees assisted in home builds for their local Habitat for Humanity affiliates.
Groundworks®, the parent company of Baker’s Waterproofing, donated $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity International to support long-term stability through safe and affordable housing. With that donation, the partnership gives 4,400 Groundworks employees the opportunity to volunteer with local Habitat chapters in over 50 communities. This is part of their Goodworks by Groundworks initiative that encourages employees to get involved in their communities and see the impact firsthand.
On July 17, The Pittsburgh team participated in a build with the Greater Pittsburgh chapter to construct a home. Specifically, the team built walls at a home in East Liberty for a family in need.
“Habitat Pittsburgh is providing decent, affordable homeownership and home repairs for low- to moderate-income families in the City of Pittsburgh and across Allegheny County,” said a representative for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Pittsburgh. “This vital work is made possible by volunteers and financial support from dedicated organizations like Baker’s.”
Baker’s employees in Central PA teamed up with Greater Lycoming Habitat for Humanity to assist in building a brand-new home in Williamsport. Employees spent a full day onsite where they helped construct the home’s framing.
Additionally, the Baker’s team purchased sets of tools that Greater Lycoming Habitat for Humanity can use for future builds.
Construction Supervisor Andy Hamelly was extremely grateful for the donation stating, “I wanted to let you know how appreciative I am, as well as our affiliate for the generous donation Baker’s made for us to buy additional tools for our builds! It is partners like Baker’s that make our work possible and my day even brighter. We hope to see them again soon.”
