Cequent Performance Products Inc. (CPP) partnered with Habitat for Humanity on Tuesday (Sept. 10) to create a safe and affordable home for an area family, according to a press release. CPP, a subsidiary of TriMas Corp., was part of a week-long blitz to refurbish the location.
“CPP came out and worked on the home for one day this week,” says Sara Piatt, human resources representative. “Other TriMas employees will volunteer at the home for the remainder of the week.”
The company had approximately 20 volunteers covering various home improvement tasks. Multiple teams worked to paint both the interior and exterior of the house. Others helped to construct walls and rebuild a breezeway. The day ended with assembly of kitchen cabinetry.
“We recently renovated our headquarters and donated a portion of our kitchen appliances to Habitat,” says Piatt. “It’s great to be able to come full circle and support the opportunity for homeownership for families in need.”
Per their mission statement, Habitat for Humanity provides decent, safe, and affordable places to live. Houses are built and repaired all over the world using volunteer labor and donations. To learn more visit www.Habitat.org.
