New Habitat for Humanity home complete in Sacramento

It was “mission accomplished” on Sept. 24 as employees from Huhtamaki’s Sacramento facility joined Habitat for Humanity to welcome the Prasad family to their new home during a dedication ceremony.

 

On July 29, 2015 the Prasad family was accepted into the Habitat program and started working on their required 500 hours of sweat equity. They were overjoyed when they received their home assignment with Rakesh  Prasad exclaiming, “What an incredible blessing!”

 

That blessing became reality with the help of generous sponsors and volunteers like the employees at our Sacramento facility.

 

Huhtamaki – Sacramento presented Habitat for Humanity with a $5,000 home sponsorship, specifically for this new home, prior to a work day in July. The team then volunteered for two days of construction and teamwork to bring the house closer to completion in July and again in September.

 

“We all worked hard, maybe got a little sore, but felt good about contributing to this great cause,” Craig Komulainen, Sacramento Plant Manager, said. “It was well worth the effort to see the smiles on the family’s faces as they received the key to their new home.”

 

Congratulations on a great project and a job well done.
