Spartan Steel, a part of Worthington Industries, has participated in Team Habitat days for the past few years, providing a thousands in donations and a volunteer teams. They have helped to build on many houses and have seen first-hand the impact that a Habitat home can make on a family.
The team was inspired to make this Christmas donation because this aligns with their core philosophy. “Worthington Industries practices good citizenship at all levels. We conduct our business in a professional and ethical manner. We encourage all of our people to actively participate in community affairs.” This organization enjoys giving back and celebrating this community!
“Adopting a family for Christmas is an incredible way to reach out to a lot of people all at once. It also shows our family members firsthand the joy of giving and what it looks like to be involved in our community.” said Kerry Ulin of Worthington Industries.
We would love this to be a regular program for Worthington Industries. Ulin says they are looking for local families to help support in our community. This year they spread the Christmas spirit to a hardworking family in Temperance, MI. This will be the fourth year that Mary and her three adopted grandchildren celebrate the holiday season in their Habitat home. Mary was overwhelmed by the generosity of this organization. This pleasant holiday surprise is a gift they will cherish this Christmas and through the new year.
