Honeywell volunteers team with non-profit to help elderly, poor
Volunteers from Honeywell and Rebuilding Together Long Island, a non-profit organization that repairs and rehabilitates the homes of poor, elderly and disabled homeowners, completed a two-day effort to assist two elderly people confined to their homes by wheelchair. The volunteers, including eight Honeywell employees and executives, donated their time to install wheelchair ramps at the two homes in New Hyde Park and North Massapequa on June 1-2.
Honeywell supports many Rebuilding Together projects throughout the United States, including previous projects in New York. The company has approximately 600 employees based in the area.
“Whether it’s installing a wheelchair ramp or completely renovating a home for a family in need, it’s important for organizations to support their communities in any way possible,” said Ron Rothman, president of Honeywell Security & Communications. “It’s a great feeling to give back to a community that has supported Honeywell for many years.”
