GUARDIAN INDUSTRIES DONATES TIME AND MATERIALS TO HELP BUILD HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HOME IN PONTIAC, MICHIGAN

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., (June 1, 2003) – Recognizing that it takes a lot of sweat equity to help build affordable housing for people in need, 22 employees from Guardian Industries’ global headquarters in Auburn Hills donated nearly 400 hours of it June 14 and 15 to help Amenta Draper and her two children achieve their dream: a brand new home.

Working with Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County (HFHOC) Mich., Guardian employees donated their time and skills to install windows and siding. In addition, the company is contributing fiberglass insulation for the entire house. The teams began work at 9 a.m. on June 14, and 10 a.m. on June 15 at 98 Forest Street, in Pontiac, Michigan.

“With the help and dedication of companies like Guardian, Habitat of Oakland County can give more deserving people a chance to own a clean, safe place to live,” says Kim Hale, executive director of HFHOC. “In tough times, we really count on the generosity of our corporate sponsors and the spirit and goodwill of their employees to help keep us going.”

Guardian’s Building Products Group, which is headquartered in Greenville, S.C., and one of North America’s largest distributors of building materials, donated the fiberglass insulation for the Habitat of Oakland’s Pontiac house. The donated insulation is scheduled for installation later this month. The Building Products Group is also providing fiberglass insulation for four other Habitat homes now under construction in Pontiac.

“Guardian Industries is proud of its employee efforts and is pleased to support Habitat for Humanity with a gift of Guardian building materials,” says Bruce Cummings, vice president of human resources at Guardian Industries. “We recognize the incredible impact this organization has on people’s lives. We are honored to be small part of it.”

Indeed, Habitat research shows that families given the opportunity of home ownership increase their income, report less conflict, seek additional education, perform better in school and report fewer illnesses. (Source: Business Partner Program, Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County.)
