Chipman Relocation & Logistics Company Teams Up With Habitat for Humanity

Company's Volunteers From California, Washington & Oregon Help Build Homes While Building Service-Oriented Team

ALAMEDA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 6, 2016) - Chipman Relocation & Logistics' company team building day, held recently during an annual Sales & Leadership Conference, served as a day of volunteering for Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley. Chipman's group of 54 volunteers spent a full day working with AmeriCorps and Habitat for Humanity members on the Muir Ridge development in Martinez, California, building homes while building their team.

Muir Ridge is a 20-home mixed-income community development that will provide affordable housing opportunities for families with limited incomes. The first phase of the project involves constructing 10 new homes. Chipman volunteers, which included teams from each of the company's 8 offices in California, Washington and Oregon, performed multiple jobs on those newly constructed homes to help complete the builds.

"We did everything from painting the interior, installing fixtures, putting up doors, framed porches, and set up the foundation of driveways," says Odelkis Padron, Chipman Marketing Coordinator.

Padron, who organized the conference and company team building day, said she chose the Habitat for Humanity EB/SV project because "it was for a great cause."

"We can help local families build their homes," she says. The volunteer work was "a great bonding experience," and an ideal project for the Chipman team.

"At the end of the day, we are a service company and we help people," says Padron. "Our goal was to motivate our team and inspire them to do that every day at work."
