Great Western Partners with Habitat for Humanity on Build Day

DENVER—September 12, 2019

In August, 10 members of the Great Western team gathered in the Swansea neighborhood in northeast Denver to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity of Metro Denver. The team arrived eager and ready to work, and throughout the day swung hammers, cut wood for floor joists, and installed a sub-floor for a duplex in this emerging community. As the day neared its end, our employees were covered in dirt and sweat, with tired arms and full hearts.

When volunteers partner with Habitat for Humanity, they save an average of $30,000 to $50,000 on the cost of building the home. This project in northeast Denver at Swansea is creating 16 buildings with enough units to provide housing for 32 families in this vibrant community. 

Every time our team comes together on important projects like this, it is an opportunity to celebrate our core values in action, both as a company and as individuals. As the foundation of our business, we empower and value our People, both inside and outside the workplace. When we join in Teamwork, we learn from each other, strengthen each other’s skills, and enhance the outcomes we deliver. And when we do it serving our community, we demonstrate our commitment to Stewardship by serving our neighbors, in this instance for generations to come.

Great Western is proud to be a Colorado born, Colorado built company, and contributing our skills to our communities in a meaningful way. We are #CommittedToColorado.
