October 18, 2017 (MONTROSE, CO) — As many as twenty employees from DMEA and Elevate Fiber will gather at Habitat of Humanity of the San Juans’ new triplex build site in Montrose twice next week to help build three homes for local families.
From 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. on both October 25 and 27, volunteers from both organizations will take the day off from work to spend their time and energy framing the first level floors of the three story homes; part of DMEA and Elevate Fiber’s partnership and commitment to helping Habitat build affordable homes.
“Build Days are a very important part of our whole process. What these committed volunteers will contribute is nothing short of amazing,” said Weesa Hild, event and volunteer coordinator at Habitat.
DMEA has committed to these Build Days as part of their broader sponsorship of the triplex project on 333 Park Avenue South, Montrose, in addition to a generous donation of $15,000 dedicated to construction costs.
“Concern for community is a founding principle for all cooperative businesses. That’s why our employees and board members are always focused on improving the lives of members. It’s also why over the past year, we’ve renewed our efforts to find meaningful ways to live out this principle. By partnering with Habitat for Build Days, we’re able to serve the community in a different way—DMEA is so much more than poles and wires,” said Becky Mashburn, DMEA Marketing Supervisor.
Other sponsors of this particular project include Alpine Bank, Academy Mortgage, Motley Architecture Design, Dynamic Integration, D&S Underground, City of Montrose, Montrose Women’s Club and Mesa Engineering and Surveying.
Habitat for Humanity of the San Juans serves Montrose, Ouray and San Miguel counties and is currently planning new construction on triplexes in both Montrose and Ridgway, which will bring their total new home construction to 58 homes since 1991.
