'Tis the season of worthy causes and meaningful gestures, and there’s no better way to live the Thanksgiving spirit than by giving back to our local communities.
This year, in response to our friends at Thrive Home Builders' call for kindness, SunStreet participated in HomeAid Colorado's first-ever "Share the Warmth" drive. This special cause aims to help restore hope and dignity to those experiencing homelessness.
As winter is upon us and temperatures begin to drop, many of our neighbors in the Metro Denver area are lacking housing and sufficient winter clothing to stay warm. SunStreet made it our mission once again to roll up our sleeves and help. To keep homeless families safer, healthier, and warmer this holiday season, and to commemorate our 300th solar installation with Thrive, we donated 300 sets of gloves, hats, and scarfs to HomeAid Colorado.
Special thanks to our Sr. Sales Training Manager Dennis Helblig for dropping off the donations. He also stopped by for a quick catch-up with Gene Myers, Thrive Home Builders CEO, and Cindy Bell, HomeAid Colorado Executive Director. Click here to see what they had to say!
"I’m so happy to be working in an industry that recognizes the meaning and importance of “community”. With over 6100 folks in some state of homelessness here in Metro Denver and winter on the way, the need for clothing, hats, gloves, etc., is immense. HomeAid is an awesome organization that has marshaled the home building industry to step up and answer this call for help. Our homebuilders ROCK!"Dennis Helblig, Sr. Sales and Training Manager, SunStreet
HomeAid Colorado is a non-profit organization that brings together homebuilding-industry professionals to build, renovate housing, and provide critical resources to children, women, men, and veterans experiencing homelessness. SunStreet is happy to be a part of this remarkable movement providing warmth and care to the 6,100 individuals in need.
While this is just one charitable effort in a local community, there are still a lot of people who could use a helping hand during this time of the year. Click here for more information about how to get involved.
