eLEND.com has announced a partnership with Habitat for Humanity. “We are pleased and proud to partner with the Morris Habitat for Humanity,” said Corey Dubnoff, president of eLEND. “We are eager to support the terrific efforts of this non-profit. The partnership between eLEND and Morris Habitat promises to be a big success. Both organizations share similar philosophies about the importance of helping families and individuals achieve homeownership—especially in the communities in which we live and work”.
eLEND initiated the partnership with Morris Habitat and will sponsor the Hammer for Habitat event taking place June 7, 2014. “Put on your work clothes and come join your neighbors for just a few hours to build walls. Enjoy music, food, crafts, face painting and fun for all ages” said Shaun Hamman, senior vice presidentof the residential mortgage division.
Additionally, eLEND has scheduled a series of on-site group builds for Morris Habitat; the first is scheduled for Sept. 11, 2014. The effort serves on many levels designed to improve teaming and leadership skills while increasing community involvement. The exercise will deliver a four-part structured team-building program that helps project teams and their leaders become better communicators and more productive. One aspect of this unique program involves taking the team through hands-on activities at a Habitat construction site. Imagine what a team can discover while building a wall, installing a fence or hanging doors. Consider the problem solving, communications, leadership and planning that goes into building a house for someone in need. Teams will be briefed on safety, construction quality and task details before putting new skills into action. Participants will end the work day with a feeling of accomplishment and pride and a clear understanding of how to improve the functioning of the team and its members.
