BGE HOME in the Community for National Volunteer Week
In April, we participated in National Volunteer Month by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake to further their mission of reducing vacant homes in Baltimore City.
As a member of the Baltimore community for over 20 years, we know how important it is to give back to our community. “The thing that sets us apart is that we care about what we do for our customers and what we do in the community,” said Tamla Olivier, President, BGE HOME.
Our team spent the day working to restore two vacant homes in the Woodbourne/McCabe neighborhood of Baltimore City. From digging fence posts to breaking up concrete, our team was tasked with working on the exterior of the homes, helping to make them move-in ready for future homeowners.
Volunteering with Habitat for Humanity allows our team to give back to the community while doing what we do best – making homes more comfortable places for families to live. Every time we enter a home, we leave it a better place to live. That same principle applies to our work with Habitat for Humanity.
While reflecting on the day, Jaime Brady, Warranty and Billing Clerk said, “Not only are you out in the community that you work in, they know that you don’t just want to work in those communities, you want to be there for them.”
We had a great time giving back to the community we serve every day. Watch the video below to see our volunteers in action, and learn more about how Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake is working to reduce vacant houses in Baltimore City.
