Last week, Angus Systems participated in a Habitat for Humanity Build Day. Each year, a team of our employees contributes a full day’s work to assist in building. We have been participating in this effort since 2007. Like many years prior, we teamed up with GWL Realty Advisors Inc. at House #15 on the Pinery Trail build site located in Scarborough.
Sporting hard hats and steel toe boots, the team took to their guided construction duties by hammering, power sawing, and drilling.
By helping the efforts of Habitat for Humanity, we strive to help give families living under the poverty line the opportunity to live in an affordable home that has the necessities that every house should be equipped with to ensure safety, cleanliness, and a good quality of life.
“The annual Habitat build day is something I look forward to every year, and have joined in for almost all since I’ve been at Angus. I enjoy the camaraderie that develops between our Angus Systems participants, and also with other people on the build. But, most importantly, it makes me so proud to see the results of all our work as we return to later phases of a build and see homes we worked on years before. There are gardens… and children going to school… and smiling neighbours… these all tell me how important Habitat for Humanity volunteers really are!” – Sandra, Implementation Manager
“Having been able to volunteer with the Habitat for Humanity Build Day program for the last two years has been a very rewarding experience for me on a personal level. I have been able to directly support families in need, while learning about all of the hard work that goes into making this happen. Looking forward participating again next year!” – Gregory, IT
“You feel really important when you get a chance to contribute to bettering the lives of other families. You work daily to support your own family, so why not work at least one day to support other families? Even a small effort can give major satisfaction when you see the results and a happy family in a new home.” – Arev, Quality Assurance
