Sammons Financial Group Dedicates Habitat for Humanity Home to Sioux Falls Family

SIOUX FALLS, SD--(Marketwired - December 22, 2015) - Sammons Financial Group (SFG) recently joined Habitat for Humanity of Greater Sioux Falls in dedicating a home to a local family. A project that began last year, SFG's sponsorship of the home included a $60,000 donation toward the cost of building the home, as well as volunteer hours contributed by employees of SFG Member Companies.

Beginning May 15, 2015, 187 SFG Member Company employees contributed over 1600 volunteer hours during business hours toward the construction of the home.

"We believe it is a privilege to be part of building a house and working with Habitat for Humanity on such a great cause," said Michael Sibley, vice president of Information Technology and executive chair of the project at Sammons. "Habitat for Humanity makes a difference in this community and for many families. We are excited to have an active part in supporting our community."

Habitat for Humanity recently honored SFG with the Construction Volunteer Group of the Year Award. "Sammons was nominated because they showed up, worked hard, and stayed with the task until it was done," said Niki Schillerstrom, Community Relations Director of Habitat for Humanity in Sioux Falls. "We have been thrilled to work alongside Sammons Financial Group Sioux Falls. Watching them raise awareness about affordable housing amongst their employees, who are learning how to build a house with the partner family who will live in that home, has served as a beautiful reminder of how rewarding this mission can be. Sammons' generous donation, the generous spirit of the employee volunteers, and the laughter and smiles shared on-site, have changed lives."
