"As the leader of OGC I believe that the underpinning of our humanity has always been the community, starting with the family unit. We are in a position to give and because we are in that position it then becomes our mantle of responsibility."
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) June 08, 2011
Ottawa General Contractors recently announced the creation of a new program to help support Habitat for Humanity. During the month of July, the company will contribute $250 to Habitat for Humanity on behalf of each homeowner who signs for a renovation project of over $10,000. Homeowners who have been considering hiring a contractor to make renovations or additions to their homes can ensure that Habitat for Humanity will receive the donations when they sign with Ottawa General Contractors for those renovations before the end of July.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization with a mission to activate volunteers and partners in the community for the purpose of breaking the poverty cycle by building reasonably priced housing and supporting home ownership. The organization has a vision of a world in which all people have a decent and safe place to live, and its members believe all human beings have worth and dignity. Their mission is to provide everyone with a safe, decent and affordable place to live.
"As the leader of OGC I believe that the underpinning of our humanity has always been the community, starting with the family unit", says Ottawa General Contractors owner, Moe Abbas. "We are in a position to give and because we are in that position it then becomes our mantle of responsibility. Our campaign is not about renovating homes, its about building communities".
Renovations booked with Ottawa General Contractors during July will serve as a means to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity and help provide decent housing for less fortunate people in the community. Habitat for Humanity provides a valuable service for people who cannot afford to buy new homes, and Ottawa General Contractors are happy to assist the organization in those efforts. The company has always focused on helping the community and keeping families unified, and giving a portion of their profits to Habitat for Humanity is one way for them to give back to those in the area. They plan to do even more work with Habitat for Humanity in the next few months.
As one of the leading contractors in Ottawa, Ottawa General Contractors was a finalist in marketplace trust for the Better Business Bureau Torch Award in 2010. They strive to remain worthy of the trust their clients place in them and believe that people are more important than company profit.
Homeowners can help make a difference in the lives of some of the area’s needy people when they schedule their renovations with Ottawa General Contractors in the month of July. People who do not sign for renovations during July can still benefit Habitat for Humanity by visiting Ottawa General Contractors’ Facebook page. The company will donate one dollar in behalf of each person who clicks the “like” button on the page.
