Milgard Helps Habitat for Humanity

May 25th, 2018 by Editor

Milgard Windows & Doors recently worked with Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity in Washington state to help beautify and prepare homes in preparation for low-income families to move in.

A team of five labored to eliminate debris from the job site, move soil and rocks in preparation for a cement patio and stacked scaffolding. Finishing touches were also added to the home as trim was painted, floor tiles and backsplashes were installed and walls were prepped for insulation.

“I was pleased to meet many of the future homeowners and the Habitat crew, who were all very friendly and appreciative of our time and efforts,” said Milgard employee Dave Hall. “Besides getting to leverage my own experience in landscaping, I learned new skills during our build day, including cutting and installing tiles. I highly encourage anyone to give it a try. It is truly a gratifying endeavor.”

“We want to extend a big thank you to our volunteer partners from Milgard that came out for a Habitat team build,” said Kathy Horton, community outreach coordinator for Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity. “They were instrumental in helping level a community yard area that at the beginning of the day was a large pile of dirt and by day’s end was ready for the next stage of landscaping. It takes many volunteer hands and hours to prepare these homes for our partner families, which also contribute sweat equity into their homes and community, so we appreciate the time that Milgard has provided.”

Milgard has been helping Tacoma/Pierce County Habitat for Humanity for six years.
