Eastern Funding Employees Volunteer on Construction Projects in Queens, New York
Eastern Funding joined forces with Habitat for Humanity New York City on projects to create affordable homes for families in need. On September 20 and 21, 2017, more than 50 Eastern Funding employees volunteered at Habitat for Humanity construction sites in Hollis, Queens. Under the direction of Habitat for Humanity construction staff, the Eastern Funding team members helped with demolition, framing, putting down floorboards and other tasks.
In addition to employees giving their labor and time to the effort, the company also supported Habitat through a monetary donation. According to Habitat for Humanity New York City, the donation will help the organization’s work in “transforming lives and communities by building quality, affordable homes”.
Michael Fanger, President, said: “Two of our fundamental principles and practices are to do the right thing and to be compassionate. Giving of ourselves to others to improve lives and communities is doing the right thing. Helping those less fortunate than ourselves is being compassionate. Habitat for Humanity is an outstanding organization that makes it possible for so many to do the right thing and to improve lives in the process. We are honored to do our part.”
