On December 6th, Valu Crew volunteered with Ontario County Habitat for Humanity in Canandaigua, NY to help build a home for a local veteran.
Team Members from Valu’s Geneva, NY location spent their day hanging drywall and installing vinyl siding alongside other Habitat for Humanity volunteers.
The family who will call this new build their home will be actively involved in the construction process.
Canandaigua residents Todd & Tiffany will contribute hundreds of hours of sweat equity alongside many volunteers. Todd is a veteran who works at the local VA hospital, and the couple plans to move in this summer, along with their two girls.
Valu Crew volunteers take an active role in bettering the communities that we serve, and amaze our customers with their hard work and dedication.
This initiative puts the do-it-yourself knowledge of the Valu Home Centers Team in action through service to our community. Volunteers for this event included team members from our Geneva location as well as the Central New York District Manager.
Valu Home Centers has been a proud partner of Habitat for Humanity since 1993.
Over the course of 24 years, together with their generous customers, Valu Home Centers has raised and donated more than $3,500,000 in support of Habitat for Humanity’s mission to build safe, decent housing for all. In addition to fundraising, we encourage our customers to become Habitat for Humanity volunteers. What better way to convince others to ‘give a hand up’ than to lead by example?

Habitat for Humanity is always seeking volunteers. No matter your skill level, or how much time you are able to commit, there is a project waiting for you! Did you know that Habitat homeowners complete hundreds of hours of sweat equity working to build their new house? That means you’ll sometimes be working right beside the family who will be living in the home once it’s completed.
