Pinnacle Security, Orem, Utah, announced the completion of a project in partnership with Habitat for Humanity in Pinnacle’s home-base city of Orem Utah. The latest project under Pinnacle’s Securing Hope initiative, the home had been built but needed inside finish work before its intended owners, a single mother and her two children, could take occupancy.
Members of Pinnacle’s installation department volunteered their time to work to finish the home.
“We found out about the project through Habitat for Humanity of Utah County and were really pleased to have the opportunity to participate,” said Stuart Dean, vice president of corporate communications, Pinnacle Security. “We have enjoyed serving all over the country, but there is something special about being able to help right here in our backyard.”
Twelve volunteers from Pinnacle worked to finish indoor painting, install appliances and complete trim work in the house.
“Habitat for Humanity depends on volunteers like Pinnacle’s team to complete and further our mission,” said Rachel Wyatt, Habitat’s volunteer coordinator. “We always appreciate companies and individuals that are willing to step-up and get the project ready for a deserving family. This family will now have a new, safe home to grow in and there are few things more important or satisfying than being able to help provide that.”
The company’s Securing Hope initiative announced in fall of 2010 has included building homes and installing solar panels and electricity in Honduras, becoming a corporate sponsor for Sustain Haiti, a local NGO focused on rebuilding earthquake ravaged Port-au-Prince with sustainable assistance. Company teams are planning a subsequent trip to Haiti in the spring to continue rebuild efforts as well as a trip to Africa to build homes and install electricity.
