Area Companies Partnered with Chatham Habitat for the 9/11 Day of Service
PITTSBORO, N.C. (September 18, 2018) – On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Chatham Habitat for Humanity participated in Activate Good’s 9/11 Day of Service. Four area companies partnered with Chatham Habitat in order to make this day possible: iContact, Lenovo, Relias, and Baker Residential. The volunteer groups helped with construction at the Robert’s Run build site in Pittsboro and at the two Chatham ReStores.
iContact and Relias, the two companies helping at the Robert’s Run site, were tasked with breaking down scaffolding, helping to secure the metal roof on one of the homes, and general site cleanup in preparation for Hurricane Florence. iContact volunteer Tina Chhabria, decided to volunteer because it’s about “providing a sense of support and community.”
Lenovo and Baker Residential worked with the two Chatham ReStores and helped to decorate the ReStore for fall, reorganize the book section, put up and paint shelving in ReStore Too, as well as helping with general de-cluttering in both of the stores. Nina Golden, a Baker Residential volunteer, came out to help because “there’s a lot of people out there who need people like us to help volunteer and get them through tough times.”
Activate Good organizes the 9/11 Day of Service to mark the anniversary of September 11 and to honor those who were lost with volunteer service. The 9/11 Day of Service also offers volunteers an opportunity to give back to their community in a positive light.
