ePlus Joins Forces with Houston Habitat for Humanity to Build Two Homes
HERNDON, VA – October 28, 2021 – ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUS – news) today announced that a team of ePlus employee volunteers partnered with Houston Habitat for Humanity in the building of two single family homes in Houston, Texas.
The Houston build marks the second engagement ePlus has undertaken with Habitat for Humanity and follows on a successful partnership in Loudoun County, Virginia, where ePlus teams built the 25th Anniversary House in 2018. Originally scheduled for Fall 2020, the Houston build was postponed due to the pandemic and was finally successfully completed on October 21, 2021.
For this engagement ePlus volunteers were split into two equal groups to provide support for two simultaneous builds occurring in the same neighborhood. Teams were tasked with building walls, raising walls, installing hurricane straps and clips and more.
“As ePlus has grown over our 30-year history, so too has our commitment to giving back to the communities that have supported our success,” said Mark Marron, president and CEO of ePlus. “We are honored to have had the chance to work in partnership with Habitat for Humanity not only on this build in Houston, where we maintain an office location, but on a previous one based near our headquarters in Northern Virginia. We look forward to our continued collaboration with Habitat in the future and wish the families who are receiving these beautiful houses happiness in their new homes.”
“We are very thankful to ePlus and its volunteers for their commitment to helping us create a world where everyone has a decent place to live,” said Allison Hay, Executive Director, Houston Habitat for Humanity. “Together, with the support and engagement of organizations like ePlus, we are working to empower people to build a better future for themselves and their families.”
ePlus, its employees and its partners contribute in many ways to charitable organizations that support individuals facing challenges from homelessness and hunger to blood cancers and access to education.
