CHARITY & VOLUNTEERING
We are proud to have staff members who care about our community! This week they lent a hand at the Homes For Families “Holiday Store”, handpicking toys for local families in need.
As we reflect and count our blessings this year, our staff members were happy to contribute these items to the Gladden Community House to be distributed to local families in need for Thanksgiving.
We had a nice turnout for our neighborhood clean-up event last Friday! Big thanks to everyone who joined the effort which removed more than a dozen large trash bags of litter and debris from our neighborhood streets! Shout out to Trent Smith & the Franklinton Board of Trade, Land-Grant Brewing Company, and The Original Josie's Pizza for supporting the effort!

Habitat for Humanity Mid-Ohio - August 2017
On August 22, 2017, some of our office staff engaged in volunteer work to assist Habitat for Humanity Mid-Ohio. The specific project we worked on was a home that was in its early stages of construction. Our 9-person volunteer team worked on various aspects of the home-building process, including wall framing, post installation and other general framing work. Although the weather was not in our favor the latter half of the day, we all felt a great sense of accomplishment with our efforts up to that point. It was a unique experience that emphasized the aspects of teamwork and giving. We take pride in the fact that our actions will have a positive impact on the future homeowners’ lives.
