Whitinger Strategic Services Participates in a Day of Service for Habitat for Humanity
September 25, 2015, Muncie, IN– Whitinger Strategic Services staff joined the Whitinger & Company accountants in a Day of Service on September 18, 2015. The team chose to give back to the community by working on the reconstruction of a home with Greater Muncie Habitat for Humanity.
It was quite a change of pace from using the toolbar on Photoshop to using a toolbox of hammers, wrenches, screwdrivers, and much more. Our staff kept busy removing wallpaper and light fixtures on the interior of the home, carrying toilets and other trashed items out of the home, and zealously using nail guns to hold insulation boards on the outside of the home.
“We had a great time working with the awesome people at Habitat for Humanity,” noted Richard Crist, Managing Director. “It is always refreshing to get out of the office to focus on the community. We had a fun experience and look forward to more team adventures like this in the future.”
