SunGreen Systems worked with the San Gabriel Habitat for Humanity on their Geneva St. project in Glendale by donating and installing a Solar Photovoltaic System for the 5 houses. The organization was very professional throughout the project development, and SunGreen Systems is glad to have been able to participate in such important community development. We look forward to collaborating further with SVGHH in the future!

My teenage sons and I have been volunteering with The San Gabriel Valley Habitat for Humanity for over a year now. We love this organization that gives worthy families a hand up, not a hand out. I helped fundraise last year for the Harvest for Habitat dinner in September and my boys and their friends all helped serve at the event. My boys are also involved in the leadership of the youth council and recently participated in Shantytown raising over $7000. We are proud of such a wonderful organization in our Community and will continue to support it. Thank you Ginger for all your wonderful ideas and leadership as we get ready for a new fundraiser in September.

SGV Habitat for Humanity is a tremendous organization. Not only do they provide a great service to the community and beneficary families, they also allow for a fulfilling volunteer experience. As Manager of Community Affairs for Nestle USA, we have taken teams of our employees to volunteer at their various build sites over the past several years. The volunteer work is meaningful, collaborative and conducive to building strong teams, who leave every build site with a great sense of accomplishment.
