AprilAire volunteers frame Habitat home

Volunteers from AprilAire donned hard hats to frame an entire Habitat for Humanity of Dane County home on April 9.
The build took place from 9 a.m. to noon at AprilAire’s Sun Prairie Innovation Center, 1763 N. Bristol Street.
Employees who volunteered their time took turns working in three different shifts and were treated to coffee, sandwiches and snacks while hammering away.
AprilAire CEO Dale Philippi stated that the company had been looking for a way to partner with Habitat due to the shared mission of creating healthy homes.
“Our commitment to local families stems from our company value of being ‘good neighbors’ making a difference in the communities where we live and work,” Philippi said.
By the end of the afternoon, volunteers stood all of the completed framing up before moving the materials to the home’s permanent location. Habitat representatives took time to thank them all for their time and effort.
“We really couldn’t do it without you all here. Thank you for the first timers and thank you to the returners for being here again. This is helping families build strength, self-reliance and stability through home ownership,” Gabriella Gerhardt, Habitat of Dane County’s Vice President of Development said.
