The Veteran's Leadership Forum (VLF) in collaboration with Community Relations completed a range of home improvement projects over two days
Halliburton’s Veterans Leadership Forum (VLF) employee resource group in collaboration with Community Relations teamed up with Rebuilding Together to tackle two Houston-area home improvement efforts.
Over two days, the Halliburton team sent 75 volunteers to the homes of a local senior citizen and a local veteran to complete a range of projects. The Community Relations team removed and replaced damaged support boards and siding, installed a new back door, and painted the entire house and trim on the local senior’s home. VLF constructed a new back porch, painted exterior walls and trim, and installed new lattice around the base of the veteran’s home.
“We are grateful for the generosity of Halliburton’s employees,” said Christine Holland, CEO of Rebuilding Together Houston. “Giving their time and energy to helping their local community means the world to us, those we serve, and the community at large.”
Rebuilding Together is a non-profit organization that annually provides hundreds of families with non-disaster repairs. For 40 years, they have served, on average, one family per day. They enlist volunteers and licensed contractors to paint, repair, and revitalize the homes of veterans, the elderly, people living with disabilities, and low-income families. Their work adds 20 years or more to the life of a home, making it safer and more resilient against disaster.
“These homeowners have given so much to the community and their country; it’s great that we get to help give back to them,” said Daniel Beale, vice president, Corporate Security, Halliburton, and a member of the VLF. “Having served in the military myself, it means a great deal to help out a fellow veteran who sacrificed so much for us.”
