Community | Champaign Office Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity

Champaign Volunteering

Story:

With the holiday season in full swing, Bailey Edward’s commitment to social good is shining through as the Champaign office traded their office holiday party to give back to the community and volunteer for Habitat for Humanity. On Friday December 15th, the Champaign BE team, decked out in their holiday attire, spent the afternoon in charge of one of two Habitat for Humanity gift wrapping stations at the local mall. Shoppers would bring their purchased goods to the station, select the paper and bow, and the Bailey Edward team would wrap their gifts for them in return for a donation to Habitat for Humanity. All of the proceeds go to building homes in the community.

“It was great during the holidays to be able to support a great organization like Habitat for Humanity,” said Kevin Schnebly, Champaign Branch Manager.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that works to provide safe, affordable housing for those in need. Through volunteer labor and donations of money, land and materials, Habitat for Humanity is able to build affordable housing and a strong sense of community between their volunteers, leaders, and those whom they serve.
