A Day with Habitat for Humanity
Orange County, CA (July 14, 2014) – U.S. International Media (USIM) and its client, Palace Entertainment, joined forces last Friday to help support Habitat for Humanity Orange County through financial support and employee involvement.
The two homes the teams worked on were located in Santa Ana, CA. With USIM and Palace volunteers split into teams, they tackled painting, caulking, cutting and installing siding and digging holes. It was a great day filled with giving back to the community and team building. The Habitat homes are scheduled to be finished this October.
“At Palace Entertainment, our job is to provide families with a fun day in an amusement or water park, but today was about helping to provide a great home for a deserving family. Habitat for Humanity provides a valuable service for our community. We are very grateful to have been involved in the build process,” said Michele Wischmeyer, VP of Marketing at Palace. “We want to thank Habitat for the difference that these new homes will make for local families in our community.”
In order to make these dreams a reality, Habitat OC needs the help of men and women who are interested in volunteering. Families who purchase Habitat OC homes agree to invest 250 hours of “sweat equity” per adult. "Sweat equity" means a Habitat OC homeowner has invested time and labor, not just money, into building their home.
