For the third consecutive year, Comporium and the Comporium Pioneer Club were excited to partner with Habitat for Humanity of York County. This year, Comporium again worked with homeowners in Fort Mill’s Paradise neighborhood to provide them with safer, more energy-efficient homes. The work on four different homes was split between a weekend in September and another weekend in November.
Over those two weekends the team helped to beautify and improve the energy efficiency of an elderly widow’s home. They rebuilt a dangerous deck and repainted the trim on the home of a single mother of three. The volunteers also replaced all the windows and reinsulated the crawlspace in an aging couple’s house. And on Veteran’s Day, they were able to assist a Vietnam Veteran by replacing his windows and making some much needed improvements to his home’s exterior.
Including the 174 hours of planning and preparation leading up to the workdays, 96 volunteers came together to make the 2016 Habitat project a success. The group included Comporium employees, their friends and family, and the staff at Habitat and together they put in 920 hours of service this year.
