Review for Habitat For Humanity International Inc, Murfreesboro, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We're starting our 7th year of partnering w/ HFH Rutherford County (HFHRC) by building the storage sheds they provide for each one of the homes built in Rutherford County. At General Mills, we have a large number of talented individuals who have the skill to help construct the sheds. We have organized a core group that helps organize the events and execute the construction in less than 1/4 of the time it originally took several years ago when we first started. We also used our project engineering experience to source better prices for the material used in the builds. We also wanted to help them raise funds for the sheds and we began an annual charity motorcycle event (with their help) that we hope will completely fund the sheds as the participation grows. They are a great organization that does a lot of work w/ a small group of people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the houses/construction projects impact the communities in Rutherford County

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them get more funds and land so they could build even more houses!

Role:  Volunteer & I/we build all of the storage buildings that HFH of Rutherford County provides at each home and have participated on several charities, homebuilds, and workshops for volunteers.
