Columbia Gas employees volunteer with York Habitat for Humanity to construct home in Dover Borough

Friday, June 01, 2018

Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania employee volunteers partnered with non-profit organization, York Habitat for Humanity, to construct a new, single-family home in Dover Borough. During the volunteer build day, Columbia Gas employees assisted to install siding. Columbia Gas employees will be part of over 800 volunteers who will complete the construction of the Dover Borough home. In addition to providing power through volunteerism, Columbia Gas also donated $1,000 to aid in the non-profit’s mission to help families build and improve the places they call home. 

“Much like Habitat for Humanity, Columbia Gas is committed to keeping customers safe and comfortable in their own homes,” said Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania President Mike Huwar. “Even simple modifications to a home can greatly improve safety. We admire the work of Habitat for Humanity and their aim to improve the lives and living conditions of low-income community members.”

“We thank Columbia Gas for their support,” said York Habitat for Humanity Volunteer Services Manager Natasha Kukorlo. “It is thanks to volunteers, like those from Columbia Gas, that make these construction projects possible. Because of our unique approach, utilizing volunteer labor, donated land & in-kind materials, the cost to build the Dover Borough home will be substantially less than the actual value of the home.” 

York Habitat for Humanity believes affordable housing plays a critical role in strong and stable communities. For more information regarding volunteer opportunities with York Habitat for Humanity and how you can get involved, please visit http://www.yorkhabitat.org.
