Anixter Receives Award for Building On!
During a Leadership Reception recently hosted by Chicagoland Habitat for Humanity, Anixter EVP and CFO Ted Dosch accepted a crystal recognition award on behalf of Anixter for our participation in the year-long Building On! event. The goal of the event is to generate more volunteers and serve more families who are waiting for Habitat homes throughout the Chicagoland area. Anixter is a Habitat for Humanity corporate sponsor and we are proud that more than 70 Anixter employees are building homes around Chicagoland throughout 2015.
The impact of last year's Raise Your Hand Chicagoland and this year's Building On! events is translating into incredible momentum for Habitat for Humanity. "Over the last three years, Habitat for Humanity in the greater Chicagoland area has increased the number of individuals served at a faster pace than the total growth rate of all the Habitat for Humanity affiliates in the United States." Says Dosch, who is also a Board Member Chair for Chicagoland Habitat.
In November, homes that the Building On! corporate teams worked on/completed will be dedicated, and the keys will be handed over to the new owners.
