QMAC launches a partnership with Habitat for Humanity
Construction company QMAC has launched a partnership with Habitat for Humanity Northern Ireland by branding the doors of their company vehicles.
QMAC has launched the partnership by committing money, time and resources and branding the doors is merely the first step in that commitment. The initiative will aim to help raise awareness and encourage more support for the charity’s work, which offers families a hand up out of poverty through simple, decent housing.
Eddie O’Neill, Managing Director at QMAC said: “We have chosen to partner with Habitat because their community building approach fits so well with our company ethos of reinvesting in the community. We believe it will add value for our company and our people and at the same time help families I need locally and around the world.”
QMAC will also donate left over building materials to Habitat ReStore; the low cost DIY store which helps local people improve their homes at prices they can afford and at the same time diverts tonnes of material from landfill sites. QMAC will encourage staff, clients and their networks to get involved too.
For 21 years Habitat NI has worked where it matters most; at the heart of communities. 28,000 volunteers from across NI have practically engaged in this work, serving thousands of families in need. A simple home changes lives; families are healthier, children improve school work and parents have a greater chance to work and generate income.
Jenny Williams, Habitat for Humanity’s Chief Executive said: “Locally and globally as we work alongside people in need we break down barriers and build stronger communities. Partnerships like this with QMAC helpus raise awareness of the urgent, global need for decent homes and raise funds to help us transform the lives of many more families.”
