Shealy Electrical Wholesalers and Schneider Electric along with several others in the industry, have teamed up to help Central South Carolina Habitat for Humanity build a home for a deserving family.
Habitat Executive Director, Roy Kramer, said this partnership will not only make an immediate impact for a hard working family, but it will also come in handy in the future.
“Both companies have connected us to a number of different businesses that we hope will continue to support our efforts long after this build,” said Kramer. “More than 30 percent of this build was funded by In-Kind contributions, which demonstrates just how much support both companies received from area businesses.”
Ideal, Leviton, Broan/Nutone, Southwire, Allied and Progress Lighting also contributed material to this project.
Schneider Electric builds a home every year in Columbia, however this is Shealy Electrical Wholesalers’ first time working with Habitat for Humanity.
“Giving back to our communities is both a responsibility and privilege,” said David White, president of Shealy Electrical Wholesalers. “For more than 65 years, Shealy Electrical and Schneider Electric have developed deep-rooted relationships throughout North and South Carolina and we are excited to come together to build a Habitat home and affect positive change.”
Construction on the Shealy Electrical Wholesalers and Schneider Electric Habitat began on Saturday, Sept. 29 in the Shealy parking lot in West Columbia, S.C.
