Habitat for Humanity is a global charity tackling poverty by building and renovating homes for vulnerable families. In 2010, CRH in North America established a national partnership with Habitat for Humanity to help address the need for safe, sustainable and affordable housing in disadvantaged areas across the United States
We sponsor an annual company-wide Habitat for Humanity project which unites employees of all its product groups to build a home for a family. Every other year, we complete a home in Atlanta, where our North American headquarters are located, and we have built homes in several of our larger markets, including Dallas, Paterson, and Salt Lake City. In addition to employees’ hands-on participation, we donate many of our products towards the construction. Support in Georgia, Texas, New Jersey and Utah has included more than $675,000 in home sponsorships and product donations as well as more than 13,000 volunteer hours. We are proud of the eight homes we have built to date.
“Our partnership with Oldcastle [CRH] helps Atlanta Habitat put more affordable housing options within reach of working families. We are honoured to have Oldcastle’s [CRH’s] support for our expanded mission to empower families and revitalize neighborhoods.”
