Ent dedicates “The 2nd House That Ent Built” with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (April 20, 2016) — On April 19, Ent Credit Union dedicated “The 2nd House That Ent Built” with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity. The house is now home to Emmanuel and Esteli and their family of eight boys who arrived from Burundi, Africa in 2008. Due to the size of their family, they have been living in two separate apartment units and are very excited about the opportunity to live together in one home. Ent employees raised more than $36,000 and donated more than 2,490 volunteer hours to help build the home, with an additional 712 employee volunteer hours spent working at the Habitat ReStore.
“As an organization our employees are committed to improving the lives of the people in the communities we serve. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity to help Emmanuel and Esteli to achieve their dream of an affordable home.” said Barb Winter, Ent’s executive vice president of organizational resources.
For the past three years, Ent employees have fundraised for Pikes Peak Habitat for Humanity, raising more than $126,000 and volunteering more than 5,000 hours in support of affordable housing in the community.
