Making a Social Impact with Rebuilding Together & Project T.H.U.G.
Every day EcoSystems makes an impact through implementing innovative water and energy conservation solutions that secure a ROI for our clients. Last weekend our focus shifted to SRI, a social return on investment as we made a direct impact on our local community.
In honor of National Rebuilding Day, EcoSystems traveled to Florida City alongside the team at Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade and Project T.H.U.G. to paint houses for homeowners in need, such as Ms. Eva Byrd, a 90-year-old woman whose home needed a much-needed facelift. The exteriors of the homes are now better protected from the elements as well.
The homeowners were not the only ones to benefit from this experience. The young men at Project T.H.U.G. “learned by doing” — mastering the art of the paint roller and understanding the impact they can have in their community. Our team enjoyed leveraging our trade skills for good and was thrilled to get together for one of the first times since the start of the pandemic.
This project was funded in part by donations from EcoSystems and our clients earlier this year as we focused on giving back to the community in lieu of holiday gifting.
