Earlier this month, team members from our Toledo operations volunteered with the Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity Homeownership program. This is an “education program and construction experience” which helps community members in need by providing them with their own homes while also teaching them about financial management and home maintenance.
Our team assisted a community member in need and completed renovations on their soon-to-be home. We helped by removing old aluminum siding from the garage that will get recycled and demolishing a shed on the back of the garage that was not built to code. In the interior of the home, we helped patch the subfloor and install a laminated veneer lumber (LVL) support beam so that an existing load-bearing wall could be removed to provide a more open floor plan. CEC Toledo also made a financial donation to this cause, which helps with renovation costs and in turn, helps Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity provide 0% interest loans for new homeowners in this program.
