AFL Associates ACT to Build Habitat for Humanity Home in Greer
Spartanburg, SC – On March 1, AFL will begin its largest volunteer initiative to date as volunteers gather to build a Habitat for Humanity home in Greer. Made possible by AFL’s Community Outreach Program, the Habitat build commemorates the company’s 30-year anniversary. In support of the celebration, Jody Gallagher, CEO and president of AFL, and his executive team will kick-off the build.
“AFL’s culture and history has been built upon our community outreach initiatives and ability to impact our community,” stated Corie Culp, community relations manager for AFL. “Our Habitat for Humanity home not only honors our rich history, but also shows how passionate our associates are about giving back and serving their community.”
The build will continue through mid-June with the entire house being built by AFL associates, friends and families. By the end of the project, AFL will have completed its largest ACT (AFL Community Team) project to date with 18 project days, more than 550 shifts and 136 volunteer hours filled by multiple AFL associates. .
