Earlier this fall, the Red House team ventured out into the cold, wet rain for a volunteer day with our local Habitat for Humanity chapter. Despite the weather, we showed our spirit, stayed focused and engaged, and got a lot done for the project.
We hope to make this event an annual contribution to the Providence community where we are headquartered. Not only are our skills related by trade, but working together on a project like this is an exceptional demonstration of our team’s core values of Service, Collaboration, and Urgency.
“It was dirty, and it was fun…And, I really enjoyed working side by side with each team member. Even digging post holes and clearing knotweed, when doing it alongside folks with such a great sense of humor and strong work ethic, was totally fulfilling, even as it was exhausting. It was moving to see the huge difference we made for a couple of families that really needed the help.”
