A former Convent that has stood vacant since 2004 is now being renovated and restored and will ultimately provide homes for ten families. 100 Parker St Lawrence MA is Habitat for Humanity’s (Merrimack Valley) most exciting and ambitious project to date. When finished this landmark structure is poised to transform its neighborhood.
Several Foy employees recently helped out with this project. We teamed up with our partner Axial Financial who has “adopted” one of ten units being renovated. Axial is responsible for raising some of the money and all of the volunteer labor needed to complete the unit. While there our employees worked on hanging drywall, installing flooring, and sanding window trim. The unit is expected to be completed and ready for occupancy by July 1st.
When completed in 2015, more than 100,000 volunteer hours will have been spent in effecting the buildings transformation. Foy Insurance offers their full time employees one paid day off per year for Community Service. Per the employees working there it was a day well spent!
