Garland's Spirit Week used creative activities to raise more than $54,000 for the Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity.
Cleveland, OH – The Garland Company Inc., an employee-owned manufacturer of high-performance solutions for the commercial building envelope, raised more than $54,000 to support the Greater Cleveland Habitat for Humanity® in its effort to provide safe, affordable housing to local families in need.
The approximately 100 employees at Garland’s headquarters on East 91st Street in Cleveland, Ohio, dedicated the week of May 27-30 to raising money in support of Habitat through various fund-raising activities. Meanwhile, Garland’s sales representatives, who are located across the U.S., Canada and the UK, joined in the cause, sending in donations throughout the week.
At the end of the week, funds raised totaled just over $27,000. Inspired by the incredible generosity of its employees, Garland’s Board of Directors announced that the company would match the amount raised, bringing the total to $54,173.
“Garland’s generosity of funding and employee time is extremely meaningful. Here is a company that is making a significant investment in its own neighborhood and providing affordable home ownership opportunities for families ready to fulfill that dream,” said John Habat, executive director of Cleveland Habitat. “Garland’s Spirit Week is a tremendous example of corporate philanthropy in action.”
David Sokol, president of Garland Industries, added, “As I watched the employees at our corporate office dig deep in their hearts and pockets to give so generously to a family in need who they didn’t even know, I felt an extreme sense of pride. Our employees truly value the importance of giving back and continue to demonstrate that year after year.”
In addition to the financial contributions provided by Garland, its corporate employees will be volunteering throughout the summer to rehabilitate a Habitat partner home in Cleveland’s Fairfax neighborhood.
