OCP Toledo is teaming up with the Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity, Dunbar Mechanical, Laibe Electric, and VM Systems to build two homes over the next several weeks for local families.
COVID-19 is affecting the low-income and housing insecure the most. Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity has provided over 200 homes and 300 plus repairs for those in need since their founding in 1988. Their focus is one that OCP is proud to support, that everyone should have the opportunity to own and live in safe and affordable housing.
"The guys are happy to be part of something so special for these two families. It’s inspiring to see how we fit into the essential workforce when at the time they didn’t have anyone else to do the work safety," explained Chris Gunderman, OCP Project Manager. OCP employees continue practicing the necessary social distancing measures and construction guidelines as defined by the State of Ohio.
Although typically commercial carpenters, the OCP team has been excited to take on the unique opportunity to build a wood-frame home. They can't wait for the day the new families get to walk in their front doors for the first time.
