O-Cedar® is a proud partner of Habitat for Humanity. As a corporate partner, we are committed to empowering families to build a better life through homeownership. We believe that home is where the heart is and home is the key to unlocking a happy and healthy future for families. We believe all families should have access to a decent and affordable place to live, which is why this year, we worked hand-in-hand with other Habitat volunteers to build homes.
Home is the Key Build Day Recap
Every April, Habitat for Humanity mobilizes a signature cause to ignite their mission for the year and this past April, Habitat for Humanity launched their 2018 initiative, Home is the Key. From April 1 – June 15, 2018, O-Cedar® is donating $1 to Habitat for every ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop sold by O-Cedar® to any U.S. retail channel in the U.S. up to a maximum of $200,000.
This past April, our team had the pleasure of teaming up with Habitat and The Scott Brothers to build not one, but two Habitat for Humanity homes in Nashville, Tennessee alongside two very deserving families: Amanda’s family and Ashlee’s family.
Our team worked side-by-side with Amanda and her 16-year-old son and Ashlee. Besides raising rooftop trusses, we were able to witness first hand the impact our cause had on both families. We worked, we laughed, we learned and we experienced the immense gratitude for having a small part in helping build these two homes.
Over lunch, Ashlee explained the amount of work that goes into becoming a candidate for Habitat’s homeownership program: Over 180 hours of time is spent learning how to care for a home, as well as financial planning and budget management. This intensive education is what deeply shifts the pattern and creates real change within communities. The work and effort these women put into the program is what really impressed our team
Both families are incredibly dedicated to their new homes and their families and we were deeply moved to have participated in this project right beside them! The opportunity was priceless and we are very proud to be a partner with Habitat for Humanity.
Even the smallest donation can help in a big way, so if you are interested in supporting the cause, you can purchase a new ProMist® MAX Microfiber Spray Mop here.
