EL PASO, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hunt Military Communities’ (HMC) employees once again joined forces to help support their local communities by participating in Hunt’s annual Helping Hands Day. In all, more than 40 organizations, located throughout the United States, were supported by hundreds of HMC employees who closed down their offices for part of the day to volunteer their time and energy in support of local organizations.
“Helping Hands Day is just one way that our employees can give back to their local communities,” stated John Ehle, President of HMC. “We encourage all of our employees to participate in this day and the majority of our staff not only do so, but come back enriched by the experience. It’s a day many look forward to each year.”
Hunt’s Helping Hands Day is about utilizing employees’ time, energy and skills for an experience that helps to create a strong team spirit, while at the same time helping support critical community organizations.
This year, some of the organizations that benefitted from Helping Hands Day included:
Ronald McDonald House, Partners in Housing, Rescue Mission of El Paso, Washington Animal Control, Children’s Cancer Fund, and various local food banks and homeless shelters.
“Thank you so much for the volunteers who served at the South Patrick Chapel,” stated Lt Col, Glenn Bright, Wing Chaplain, Patrick AFB. “They all were amazing as they cleaned and organized an entire education building and chapel. The building is so much more welcoming and such a better place to grow spiritually.”
