Creating a new home
Habitat for Humanity event
The Henkel Law Department in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, organized a Habitat for Humanity event and helped build a home for a future family.
“It’s amazing how big our impact can be”, said Debora Welch, Assistant General Counsel, after organizing a Habitat for Humanity event. During the one day event, she and her colleagues from the Law Department participated in one aspect of a new home construction project for a family in Bloomfield, Connecticut: They measured, cut and hung vinyl siding on 2.5 sides of the existing structure.
Habitat for Humanity is an organization that makes a positive difference in the lives of families, the revitalization of neighborhoods and the sustainability of communities. The organization sends a powerful message of hope to families in our community. Working with them ensures that families are moving into decent, affordable homes with opportunities to pursue better lives.
This event required the Law Department colleagues to work closely together on a common project. Regardless of their work experience, they utilized their collective knowledge and skills to assist in the building of another family’s home. “I enjoyed working alongside my coworkers to make a difference in the lives of others less fortunate”, said Debora Welch. “We all felt a sense of accomplishment and pride. We look forward to more events such as this in the future that will continue to enhance our commitment to the community and to the benefits for all of us personally and collectively.”
