We’re ecstatic to be part of the life-changing work Habitat Chesapeake does
LANHAM, Md. (PRWEB) June 22, 2018
Thompson Creek Window Company was named In-Kind Donor of the Year by Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake at the 36th Annual Cornerstone Society Donor Reception last night held in Baltimore. Thompson Creek Vice President Brian Wuest accepted the award.
Over the past 36 years, Habitat Chesapeake has built 750+ home and provided safety, stability and a chance for a brighter future to families, including more than 3,000 children. Thompson Creek was honored as a vital supporter helping Habitat Chesapeake to build homes in central Maryland, including recent projects in Baltimore and Annapolis.
Thompson Creek has donated and installed windows and gutters to two homes in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood of Baltimore and one home in the Clay Street neighborhood in Annapolis. During these replacement projects, groups of Thompson Creek volunteers also participated in a Team Build, performing repair work on the home to learn new skills while making a difference in the community.
Clementine Alford was one of the three homeowners welcomed to their remodeled rowhouse in the Woodbourne-McCabe neighborhood of Baltimore. She said, “I’ve been waiting all my life. This is my dream, and now I have something to leave my children. We’re really grateful for Habitat for Humanity for what they’ve done for our city.”
According to Brian Wuest, “We’re ecstatic to be part of the life-changing work Habitat Chesapeake does. We’re especially proud of the work in Clay Street neighborhood of Annapolis since its located one street over from where we had our first window factory 38 years ago.”
Rick Wuest, President and CEO of Thompson Creek, said, “It’s an honor to work with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake and to give back to the community that supports Thompson Creek. We are a family business and helping deserving families improve their lives has been a rewarding experience for our company and our employees.”
