Pardee employees joined Habitat for Humanity to build a house for a family in need October 1.
Over 50 employees and their spouses participated in building the house that took most of the day to complete. Neighboring families in the community also helped and showed their support. The house is now located in Shuey Knolls Subdivision near Edneyville.
“This was a way for Pardee employees to help a family get a new start and the satisfaction that comes from being a part of a project that is so important to our community. Habitat for Humanity is a wonderful group of people making a positive influence on Henderson County. Alan Stissel, site facilitator for the project, was fantastic as a leader for our group. Projects like this one are what Pardee is all about, we are all a part of the community and we love to give back to the community in many ways,” said Tim Auwarter, director of Director of Rehab Services at Pardee Hospital.
