COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 22, 2015) – Ent employees recently concluded their 2015 spring fundraising and construction campaign benefitting Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity in support of “The Second House that Ent Built.” From April to June, Ent employees raised more than $36,000 and donated over 2,496 volunteer hours to help build the home, with an additional 712 employee volunteer hours spent working at the Habitat ReStore.
For the past three years, Ent employees have fundraised for Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity, raising a total of more than $126,000 and volunteering more than 5,000 hours in support of affordable housing in the community.
“Because of Ent’s wonderful employees, two families are able to achieve home ownership. In addition to contributing financially, they have given their time and talents to help many more families. They have done more than build houses – they’re building community,” said Andy Petersen, Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity development director.
“We are proud of our employees’ partnership with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity, helping build affordable homes for deserving families in our community and fundraising. Again this year, Ent employees brought their enthusiasm and creativity to our spring philanthropy effort and exceeded our expectations for both fundraising and individual volunteer hour support,” said Barbara Winter, Ent’s executive vice president of organizational resources.
