At Oxner + Permar, we’re not only passionate about our clients, we’re also passionate about giving back to our communities. In May, we had the awesome experience of getting to work with Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity is an incredible organization that builds homes for families in need.
They work with a variety of volunteers and companies to help get these homes built. So, on May 13th, we spent the weekend helping with a build in Greensboro. Eleven members from our office met up with a team through the Greensboro Bar Association and came together to build this home.
It was such an incredible experience! For one, the family was there working with us to shingle the roof. We had a great time getting to know the family and talking with them about their experiences. Everyone was so kind. Some of the other volunteers were also hoping to seek help from Habitat for Humanity. They’d put their applications for assistance in, but in order to be considered, they needed to log a certain number of volunteer hours with Habitat.
And in the end, we got the roof finished! We had such a wonderful time getting to know everybody, and spending a day giving back to the community. It’s truly a wonderful opportunity to not only lend a hand, but get to meet the people we were helping. We’re looking forward to our next opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity!
