Recently, 10 members of Cushman & Wakefield’s Raleigh-Durham office volunteered at Habitat for Humanity of Durham. The team served as the finishing crew on the house and painted and stained the exterior as well as front and back porch railings. The two-story, four-bedroom home, built for the Hernandez family, is located in the South Side neighborhood and was constructed in partnership with Duke Habitat, The Duke Office of Durham Affairs, Duke Chapel/The Congregation at Duke Chapel and Duke Alumnus Pradeep Baliga Class of 2006.
The Habitat for Humanity opportunity was led by Cushman & Wakefield Future Leaders and Cushman Cares. Cushman & Wakefield has partnered with Habitat for Humanity annually since 2006. The volunteer opportunity is so popular among members of Cushman & Wakefield that the spots filled within minutes. Habitat for Humanity of Durham is dedicated to eliminating substandard housing locally and worldwide through constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes; by advocating for fair and just housing policies; and by providing training and access to resources to help families improve their shelter conditions.
Cushman & Wakefield will also volunteer in the Special Olympics of Wake County Spring Games in the first week of May, as well as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in the Triangle. The firm has already raised $2,549 in donations for the organization.
