Long Beach Habitat for Humanity

December 3, 2013 – Habitat For Humanity International hosted an event with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles and volunteers from General Motors to make significant repairs to a Long Beach home on November 21. Home repairs at 345 W. 33rd St. in Long Beach, were made possible by a $1 million grant from the General Motors Foundation and was one of 12 selected for renovations using the grant funding. Volunteers from General Motors worked alongside the family to make the critical repairs, painting, landscaping and more. “We are committed to helping families and strengthening communities across the U.S. through our work with Habitat for Humanity International,” General Motors Foundation President Vivian Pickard said in a statement. “Our team GM Cares employee volunteers are passionate about giving back and find the hands-on work of home repair and neighborhood revitalization extremely rewarding.” Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles’ home repair program works to remove health and safety dangers at homes of low-income individuals. “Thanks to the support of organizations and volunteers, we’re changing lives and communities,” Erin Rank, president and CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, said in a statement.
