‘Tis the season of giving. Low income families often spend almost 50 percent of their income on rent, which leaves them with limited resources to afford other necessities like clothing, food and transportation let alone the comfortable touches that make a house a home. If you’re looking for opportunities to give back locally, the Home for Good Project , featuring program ambassador – and Grammy award-winning artist – Darius Rucker, is a perfect place to start.
The Ply Gem Home for Good project is a multi-year initiative that includes a donation of over $1 million of exterior building products and funds for Habitat for Humanity to help families build strength and stability through housing. The company is supporting the project with advertising and social media initiatives to encourage its associates, the building industry and consumers to support its effort and bring awareness of the need for affordable housing in communities across the country. So far in 2016, Ply Gem helped to build and remodel 300 homes, making a difference in the lives of 300 families in 63 cities across the U.S. Ply Gem’s commitment to the belief that everyone deserves a place to call home aligns with Darius’ core values as well as themes across his music.
