Ply Gem Kicks Off Second Annual Home for Good ProjectMay 18th, 2017 by Editor
Ply Gem has kicked off the second year of its Home for Good project. The project is designed to raise awareness, drive support and help build hundreds of homes with families in need of affordable housing. Through Home for Good, Ply Gem is partnering with Habitat for Humanity and three-time Grammy-award winner Darius Rucker as the 2017 project ambassador. Ply Gem is also leading “Affordable Housing Month” this May, through a social and grassroots educational campaign that encourages others throughout the nation to join the “Home for Good” movement and get involved, according to the company.
The Home for Good project is a multi-year initiative that includes a donation of more than $1 million of exterior building products and funds to support Habitat’s vision. As part of the Home for Good project, Ply Gem is the presenting sponsor of Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz, a week-long campaign (June 5-9), in which Ply Gem and professional homebuilders will help Habitat raise awareness of the need for affordable housing. This year, homebuilders in more than 70 communities across the U.S. will volunteer to help build, rehab or repair more than 200 homes as part of the initiative.
“At Ply Gem, we have a passion for giving back to the community and share in the conviction that everyone deserves a place they can be proud to call home,” says Gary E. Robinette, Ply Gem chair and CEO. “During the month of May, June and all year-round, we’re asking for the public including homeowners and our professional builder, contractor and distributor partners — to join us on this mission to help make homes more affordable and accessible to those in need.”
