Polydeck and Im, has recently donated to Project 150, a nonprofit organization focused on helping homeless and disadvantaged high school students in Las Vegas.

Who is Project 150?

Project 150 provides necessary resources like housing, food, and clothing to high school students who are struggling. The organization aims to help these students stay in school and work toward graduation.

Where It All Started

The goal of the Impact Prayer Gathering is to donate proceeds from trade shows to an organization that's local to the region. Polydeck and the Impact Prayer Gathering community organized a meeting of over 75 participants at ConExpo 2023 in Las Vegas. They decided to contribute to a local organization that matched their values of community service and compassion, selecting Project 150 for the donation.

Expressions of Gratitude

Members of the Polydeck Care team expressed that they appreciate the work that Project 150 is doing, especially in tough times like these. Senia Roybal, Projects Manager for Project 150, added, "We're thankful for Polydeck’s support. This donation will help us continue our efforts to assist teens in need."

The donation of $16,575 from Polydeck represents the combined goodwill of more than 500 families and businesses across the U.S. These funds will directly support programs in the Southern Nevada area that help students stay in school and work toward a better future.

Closing Thoughts

By donating to Project 150, Polydeck and its partners have taken a meaningful step to help young people in need. It’s a clear demonstration of the company’s commitment to making a tangible impact in the communities they engage with.

What happens when a local manufacturer of mining products joins forces with an organization dedicated to making homeownership accessible? Life-changing magic. Once again, Polydeck and Habitat for Humanity has partnered together to not just build homes, but to construct hope and community in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Wall Raising: Where It All Begins

It's August 8, 2023. Everyone is eagerly waiting as Ryan Johnson, Polydeck's VP of Product and Customer Solutions, walks to the podium to address the crowd.

"Our mission isn't just words on a wall; it's a life-long commitment. We're here to serve, grow, and care for people in a way that honors God."

The words hit home. Just ask Evelyn Martin. A year ago, she became a proud homeowner, thanks to Polydeck and Habitat.

"I never thought I'd own a home. Now, thanks to this program, my dream is a reality," said a grateful Martin.

A Shared Vision for Spartanburg

Raymond Davis, Sr., the highly committed Executive Director of Spartanburg’s Habitat for Humanity, sees this collaboration as a natural fit. “Our work with Habitat is about helping families get homes, especially those who might find it tough in the usual ways. It’s good for the families and the whole community," Davis explained.

According to Davis, who joined Habitat on July 18th, 2022, this is a mission that goes beyond constructing individual houses. It aims to uplift the community as a whole.

Thoughtful Selection: It’s All in the Details

The partnership is not limited to nailing 2x4's together. Linda Coltrane, Polydeck’s VP of Employee Care, elaborated on the careful planning involved.

"We’re working with Habitat on several homes. We chose a neighborhood close to important facilities to make life easier for the residents," Coltrane stated.

As Coltrane states, this isn't just a side project for Polydeck; it's an embodiment of their values. "We care about our employees and the wider Spartanburg community. This is one way we show it,” Coltrane added.

For both Polydeck and Habitat for Humanity, it's evident that their work transcends beyond the structural to the emotional and communal.

"It’s not just about the houses; it's about the community we’re building," echoed Johnson.

Closing Thoughts

As new homes continue to pop up on the Spartanburg horizon, it's evident that the collaboration between Polydeck and Habitat for Humanity is laying strong foundations for something even greater: a community where dreams are not just built but lived.

It's a partnership that's not just changing the landscape. More importantly, it's changing lives.
