History Of Support For Habitat For Humanity Continued By Binson's Home
Health Care Centers And Northwood Inc. Family Presented With New Home Saturday, September 22nd On Detroit's East
CENTER LINE, Mich., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- A family will be able to enjoy a fresh start with a new home thanks in part to the hard work and generosity of Binson's Home Health Care Centers and Northwood Inc.
More than 20 Binson's and Northwood employees did everything from raise wall beams to paint trim and complete a three-bedroom ranch home on Detroit's east side as part of a Habitat for Humanity effort. Binson's and Northwood also contributed $15,000 to the project.
The family was presented with the home on Saturday, September 22nd, and will be able to move in around early October.
"Binson's and Northwood have been proud supporters of Habitat for Humanity for several years running," said Jim Binson, President and CEO of Binson's Home Health Care Centers and Chairman of Northwood Inc. "Habitat for Humanity has found a way to bring people together with the common goal of providing a better life to a family in need. It's what we try to do with our business every day -- empower people to live better lives."
Binson's and Northwood have helped build four homes since 2004 through Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit that brings together volunteers and a family in need to build a new home.
Along with Binson's and Northwood's $15,000 contribution, Blue Care Network provided an additional $15,000 each to complete construction of the home. Turner Construction Company made a monetary donation and also provided volunteers to help build the house.
"Turner was honored to be a contributor to this worthwhile event. It's important to support our community and make a difference," commented Chad Wallard, Manager of Turner's Self-Perform Group.
Habitat funds covered additional costs associated with the construction. A typical home built through Habitat for Humanity takes about $75,000 to build. The family that will reside in the home was chosen through the Habitat application process.
"We look forward to continuing our support for Habitat for Humanity," Binson said. "Our team now looks forward to the summer months when they can roll up their sleeves and get to work on a new house. There's something about the look on a person's face when, after months of hard work, they step through the door of their brand new home -- there's nothing like it. Creating a sense of pride and dignity in people -- that's what we're all about."
