ANAHEIM, Calif. — Team members from MaxLite volunteered to help prepare homes for Habitat for Humanity partner families in Cypress, California on Wednesday, February 24.
Led by experienced Habitat for Humanity crew leaders, employees of the company’s Anaheim office assisted with painting, trim work and other tasks on the final five homes being constructed in the Cypress II development on Lincoln Avenue. The second of two developments built by Habitat for Humanity in the city, Cypress II consists of 15 one-, two- and three-bedroom units. Six of the homes will sold to moderate-income families with 81%-120% of the Area Median Income (AMI). The income over costs from the sale of these units will be used to develop nine homes sold to buyers with less than 81% AMI. The homes will be compatible with surrounding neighborhoods and add a high quality aesthetic value to the community.
The corporate volunteer program is part of a four-year, $1 million commitment by MaxLite to provide energy-efficient LED and CFL lamps and fixtures to Habitat for Humanity. The company’s New Jersey headquarters participated in a similar Team Build Day in November 2015 with Habitat for Humanity of Newark, New Jersey.
