Barefoot and Company, Inc. Teams up with Habitat for Humanity for Home Builders Blitz

Charlotte, NC - (October 23, 2009) – Barefoot and Company, Inc., a local building supply company, participated in the Charlotte Habitat for Humanity 2009 Home Builders Blitz project on Saturday, October 3.

Each year, Habitat for Humanity partners with professionals in the building industry to construct new homes for low income families nationwide.  Ten employees from the Indian Trail based company lended a hand to donate and install windows, mirrors, shelving, bath accessories and door hardware to the homes that the Charlotte affiliate constructed.

“A fun time was had by all,” said Bill Green, Director of Operations for Barefoot and Company, Inc. “I was touched by the enthusiasm our volunteers expressed towards committing to this special project. Everyone was ready and willing to offer their skills and expertise to a great cause. The Home Builders Blitz was a success and I am sure the new homeowners will be more than pleased with the outcome.”

Charlotte Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit advocate for affordable housing, sponsored the new initiative in conjunction with the Home Builders Association of Charlotte. This year’s project will result in the construction of three new homes.

Barefoot and Company, Inc. was one of seven building companies that participated in the project. The Home Builders Blitz ran through October 9.
