Freightquote executives and employees from many different departments along with their family members came out this past Saturday to support Habitat for Humanity. Together, they braved the cold, worked hard, had fun and, most importantly, helped on a house for a Kansas City, Kansas family in need.
Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit organization that works in partnership with people everywhere, from all walks of life, to eliminate substandard housing by building simple, decent, affordable homes to sell to low-income families in need. Habitat’s philosophy is: “Encourage a hand-up – not a hand out!”
Byron Clymer, CIO, said,
“Habitat for Humanity is a great program for our community, and over the years I have participated in a number of projects around the KC metro area. I enjoy volunteering my time to Habitat because you immediately see the results of your work. The families receiving the house really appreciate the help of all of the volunteers, and it gives them a home and a place to make memories.”
“I have to tell you this weekend was great! Being relatively new to Freightquote, I got to meet new people, as we had volunteers from a lot of different departments. We accomplished a lot and made more progress than Habitat thought we would . . . but that is how the folks at Freightquote roll!”
