Local Companies Team up for Tomorrow's Habitat for Humanity Building Project
April 25, 2012, Madison, WI - The employees of First Business Bank and Neider & Boucher, S.C. are participating in a Habitat Humanity Building Project in the parking lot of the First Business Bank Center in UW Research Park. The project runs from 8am to 1:30pm at 401 Charmany Drive, Madison, WI on Thursday, April 26, 2012.
The project is a "Panel Build," an event designed to engage the community in the Habitat mission by presenting an opportunity to help a deserving family build their home. The purpose of a Panel Build is to construct all of the
wall panels necessary to build an entire home. All volunteers can be expected to have a hammer in hand helping to assemble wall panels for this home.
The family selected to become owners the new home are the Morris Family. They have three children and are originally from Ghana, West Africa. They moved to the United States to provide a better life and education for their children. The Morris family will be on site for the build and will speak to the volunteers at a noon luncheon.
Habitat for Humanity of Dane County is a local nonprofit, that through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, builds and rehabilitates simple, decent houses with the help of the partner families. Habitat homes are sold to partner families at no profit, financed with affordable, no-interest loans. The homeowners’ monthly mortgage payments are used to build more Habitat houses.
"First Business is excited to have the opportunity to participate in this important event with Neider & Boucher," says Mark Meloy, President & CEO of First Business Bank. "Habitat for Humanity serves an important need in the
community, and the people there have an inspiring drive to help others. I think all business leaders should aspire to bring this spirit into their organizations."
"This is a wonderful opportunity to have both Neider & Boucher and First Business team up to help the Morris family reach their dream of owning their own home," says George Kamperschroer, Managing Partner at Neider Boucher and President of the Habitat for Humanity of Dane County Board of Directors. "We feel strongly about this worthwhile cause and how it helps local families be in a better place."
