October, 2016, Hauppauge, NY – The associates and their families at Santinelli International continue to “give back” to the community, having participating in the company’s sixth Habitat for Humanity home build on October 8, 2016. Alongside the home owner, a disabled Army veteran named Youlanda, our team helped with the demo work inside the house located in Ronkonkoma, NY. Youlanda herself has volunteered in multiple Habitat for Humanity building opportunities and is now grateful to be the recipient of a Habitat home of her own.
Not only did the Santinelli associates put on their work boots and hard hats, they also put their hands in their pockets to provide the necessary funds for the building material. Thanks to the company, business colleagues, personal friends and family members, Santinelli was able to reach their goal!
“It was a great representation of the heart and soul our employees have. Habitat for Humanity has become a heartwarming tradition here at Santinelli and we take pride in sharing the tradition with our families and friends,” said Gerard Santinelli, company President & CEO. “It is yet another great example of how the strength of Santinelli International is in the power of our team,” Mr. Santinelli added.
