In an ongoing effort to actively give back to the community, Glass 3 Enterprises, a leading US and Canadian supplier and sourcing provider for commercial architectural glass, is proud to announce their 2021 philanthropic initiative partaking in the Greater Vancouver Habitat for Humanity’s Build Day.
On May 5, 2021, the G3E team, which included family, spouses, and friends, spent the day supporting a cause that would change lives and help build strength, stability, and independence for local families.
“We are dedicated to serving the community and exploring opportunities that allow us to give back; this year we chose Habitat for Humanity’s Build Day,” says Gayle Morris, Market Development Manager for G3E. “We didn’t want to just do good things –we wanted to do the right things and contribute both financially and in human resources. We chose May 5, as this day which coincided with the Women Build 2021 campaign.”
During the event, G3E connected with a young, single mother of three named Tabitha, who will be one of the receiving families. “To learn of her story was not only moving but warmed our hearts as she held back tears in conveying to us all what this truly means to her.” Says Morris.
Affordable housing in Greater Vancouver, has been out of reach for Tabitha and many others. However, thanks to Habitat for Humanity and volunteers like G3E, she and her daughters can finally look forward to having a home of their own in Mission, BC. Habitat for Humanity heavily relies on financial contributions and volunteerism; Glass 3 Enterprises also contributed by gifting vanity mirrors in cooperation with MX Glass & Mirror.
Habitat for Humanity Greater Vancouver is one of 58 Habitat for Humanity affiliates across Canada and among more than 3000 affiliates around the world. Habitat for Humanity is an inclusive, non-profit, non-government organization. Through volunteer labor and donations of money and materials, Habitat works with families in need to build safe, decent, and affordable housing and relies on a volunteer workforce to build homes so that together they can provide safe, stable, and affordable housing for hard-working local families and break the cycle of poverty.
