A Lone Tree resident, Honna Gauthier is home from her travels to
the Dallas area, where she, along with 250 volunteers, built nine
homes in five days just in time for the holidays.
The third annual Whirlpool Corp. Building Blocks event was held
Nov. 17-22 with participation from Habitat for Humanity
International and the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity.
“The holidays are a reminder to give thanks for what matters
most in our lives,” Ellen Taaffe, vice president of Mass Brands for
Whirlpool Corporation said. “It is through the hard work and
dedication of partners like Honna that we are able to work toward
achieving that mission, one block at a time.”
This year’s Whirlpool Corporation Building Blocks program took
place in the West Dallas community of Greenleaf Village II. On
average the median household income in this area is $25,790 and an
estimated one out of three families live below the federal poverty
level. Dallas is the third city to be chosen for the program, which
kicked off in Nashville, Tenn., in 2006 and then went to Phoenix in
Gauthier was chosen as a Whirlpool employee volunteer to help
with the building blitz.
