This weekend, 10 Freedom staff and board members gave back. Their work benefited Habitat for Humanity’s new Aberdeen ReStore. Rather than go all at once, staff worked two shifts. They helped in the ReStore warehouse and storefront.
Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to house those in need. Home owners can get a low cost home. This happens thanks to Habitat’s volunteers and donations. Volunteers typically help on building projects. Less well known, they can also work in the air-conditioned comfort of a Habitat’s ReStore! Learn more about Habitat’s Susquehanna’s work in Harford County. The Aberdeen ReStore‘s location and hours are online.
This volunteer effort is one of several organized by Freedom’s Volunteer Committee. We give back to our Harford County community!
Freedom staff volunteers spent the weekend helping out at the Susquehanna Museum at the Lock House’s Pirate Fest in Havre de Grace. Festival activities included a 5k run, a pirate encampment, kids’ activities and food.
Janis Motichka, VP of Accounting, Kristi Kelly, Electronic Services, and Jeff Herman, Business Banking, covered the 5K race in the morning. Later in the day Marcus Johnson and Jen Davenport from our Swan Creek branch and Heather Theisen, Loan Program, Dominique Beverly, Indirect Lending, and Anthony Allen, IT, handled the games at the afternoon’s Pirate Encampment. The weather was beautiful and the staff were happy to lend a hand.
Freedom provides community support wherever possible. This includes allowing staff to do community volunteer work during the day. As part of our volunteer efforts, Freedom staffers met with Dr. Mack, Principal of Bel Air Elementary, to learn ways to support the school and its events.
Recently, employees volunteered at Bel Air Elementary School’s Field Day event. On May 23 employees took advantage of dry weather to do some landscaping work in front of the Harford County school. Staff representing Accounting, Marketing, Lending, Risk Management, the Contact Center and Member Services all lent a hand. Now the school’s landscape staff can work on other areas to keep the school beautiful.
