BHHS Chicago’s Offices Participated in Habitat for Humanity Build

CHICAGO (June 17, 2023)Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Chicago’s Bucktown, Lincoln Park, Elmhurst and Oak Park offices, in conjunction with the Kindness Foundation, the company’s philanthropic arm, celebrated Community Kindness by participating in a Habitat for Humanity build on June 9th. During Community Kindness, REALTORS® and staff from the firm’s 24 offices select organizations to support with volunteer time and services in their respective communities.

Joe Stacy, Senior Vice President, General Sales Manager and Kindness Foundation Chairman, said, “I am so proud of the 25 BHHS Chicago volunteers who worked on the Habitat for Humanity of Chicago build site on June 9th. Volunteers worked from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm installing exterior drywall and cutting window holes, building wall structures and installing exterior siding. They hammered, drilled, measured and sawed materials. Their efforts moved three homes closer to completion and I want to thank each of them for a job well-done.”

Habitat works toward building strength, stability and self-reliance in partnership with families in need of decent and affordable housing. Habitat homeowners help build their own homes alongside volunteers and pay an affordable mortgage.

The Kindness Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to support meaningful local initiatives that improve the communities it serves and enhance the quality of life for fellow citizens.
