Tri-Ed / Northern Video Lends 30 Helping Hands in Support of Habitat for Humanity

Tri-Ed / Northern Video Distribution recently lent its support to Habitat for Humanity. Fifteen Tri-Ed / Northern Video employees from various locations across North America volunteered from Sept. 15-22 at Habitat for Humanity on John Island, S.C.

The group, which spanned senior management to sales/administrative staff, labored for the full  week on a home that was under construction. Everyone on the team participated in various tasks including demolition, digging a foundation, and installing gables, tresses, hurricane plates and vinyl siding - all without the aid of automated machinery!

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. They build with people in need regardless of race or religion and welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds. Habitat for Humanity homes are made simple and affordable to low-income families around the world. The ministry has helped build over half a million affordable houses and served 2.5 million people worldwide to honor its vision: a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

The main house the Tri-Ed / Northern Video team worked on was being built for a mother, her two children and handicapped grandmother. In order to be eligible for a Habitat home, the recipient must be a single parent with children, make under $25,000 and work on building at Habitat for a total of 500 hours. 

"This was a truly fulfilling experience for our employees and a great way for our company to give back to the community," said Tri-Ed / Northern Video President and CEO Pat Comunale. "As Habitat says, they are a helping hand, not a handout. It was our privilege and pleasure to lend our support and helping hands to this very important cause."
