Upcoming Building Event Is Coupled with $50,000 Donation from Carhartt
Detroit – On August 8, employees from Dearborn-based Carhartt will join up with Habitat for Humanity Detroit to build five sheds for families in downtown Detroit. Carhartt is pairing a $50,000 donation to Habitat for Humanity Detroit for the event.
In total, 50 Carhartt employees from across the country are expected to participate. The group will build five sheds for homes with no existing outdoor storage. The sheds will provide a space to protect the homeowners’ property, and lead to better curb appeal in the neighborhood by creating spaces for collections of important outdoor tools and equipment to be stored.
The shed-building event is scheduled for August 8 from 3-7pm, beginning at 14325 Jane Ave., Detroit. When the sheds are finished, the volunteers, Habitat for Humanity Detroit staff, and the homeowners are invited to enjoy dinner together.
While best known for its new home builds, Habitat for Humanity Detroit does much more than that in Detroit. It also teams up with companies like Carhartt, which have a proven commitment to supporting the community, to improve existing homes within neighborhoods. That can mean indoor renovations, new roofing, landscaping, or in this case new outdoor shed storage space.
August’s event and donation marks the latest in a growing line of partnerships between Habitat for Humanity Detroit and Carhartt.
