When Live Big® Equals Give Big
Four team members from our San Francisco office showed what it means to Give Big this past Saturday when they devoted the day to working on a Habitat for Humanity project in Daly City. The project, known as the 7555 Mission Street Development, consists of 36 condominium units and is the largest structure ever undertaken by Habitat in the Bay Area. The YeBu volunteers were Lauren Vitt, Cameron Farbotko, Dorothy Navales, and Jennifer Hicks (left to right in the photo below).
Lauren, Dorothy, Jen, and Cam spent the day painting the building’s exterior. Previously, Lauren and Jen had spent a day installing exterior fiberglass sheeting on an elevator shaft.
The 7555 Mission Street Development started in February 2011 and has an expected completion date in early 2013. The 36 low-income families who will occupy these units must contribute 500 hours of sweat equity and take on a mortgage provided by Habitat. The homeowners’ mortgage payments are used to finance ongoing Habitat projects.
