Polydeck Partners with Habitat for Humanity on Building New Homes
On June 7, 2022, Polydeck celebrated the sponsorship of its first Habitat for Humanity home being built in the local Spartanburg community with a traditional wall-raising ceremony. This event marked the first of several homes that Polydeck has lined up to build over the next few months through the Habitat for Humanity organization.
Prior to the ceremonial wall-raising, several speakers including Polydeck’s CEO, Peter Freissle, Polydeck’s President, Ron Kuehl and the recipient of the home who would like to be known as Ms. Martin, took to the stage to share blessings and goodwill for all that this home will represent. For the Polydeck team, this home embodies the company’s commitment to social responsibility and the heart of the Freissle family which is to care for those in need. For the Martins, this home represents a long-awaited dream finally coming true- home ownership, and the hope that this home will be a blessing to generations of Martins to come. Before the crowd scattered and the Polydeck crew got to work on building the home, each attendee signed words of encouragement on the house’s wood structure to remember the significance of this partnership.
“Polydeck is a company founded on Christian values that prioritizes giving back locally, nationally, and globally,” states Polydeck’s Human Resources Director, Linda Coltrane, “It brings us tremendous joy to partner with an organization like Habitat for Humanity, to formulate a new connection with the Martin family, and to provide an incredible opportunity for our employees to serve together in a hands-on way to impact the Spartanburg community.”
With construction having begun immediately following the ceremony, the approximately 1,100 ft2 home will be ready for Ms. Martin to occupy in just a few short months. In the meantime, Polydeck will celebrate two more wall-raisings in the neighborhood so that several others may join Ms. Martin in receiving a new home.
