In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Denver-based Transamerica employees are volunteering more than 1,250 hours to help a local family build their new home in Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver’s College View community in southwest Denver.
Scheduled for completion in February, the “Transamerica House” is one of eight homes employees have volunteered to help build across the country. The Denver project is the only full-build, meaning that over the course of four months, dozens of Transamerica employees will help build a home from start to finish.
The Habitat projects strike a chord with Transamerica’s employees, whose dedication to helping people build a lifetime of financial security extends beyond the company’s core purpose.
“Without a doubt, having a safe, comfortable and affordable place to call home is a key component in long-term financial security,” said Blake Bostwick, Transamerica’s chief operations officer. “We are hoping the full-build project in Denver serves as a pilot that we can potentially replicate in other cities across the country, through our relationship with Habitat.”
This marks the fifth consecutive year the company has supported the nonprofit. All told, several hundred Transamerica employees will have participated in builds in eight cities this year; Baltimore, Md., Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Denver, Colo., Los Angeles, Calif., Little Rock, Ark., Memphis, Tenn., Plano, Texas, and St. Petersburg, Fla.
“We’re honored to again partner with Habitat in transforming the prospects for families and creating the stability which home ownership makes possible,” added Mark Mullin, Transamerica’s president and CEO.
