Servus Credit Union (Servus) announced their support of Habitat for Humanity Edmonton’s (Habitat) volunteer program through a presenting sponsorship over the next two years. Habitat relies heavily on community partners to provide Albertans who qualify with an opportunity to own an affordable home so that they can focus on other meaningful goals in their lives outside of stable and affordable housing.
“Volunteering is vital to the success of our homeownership program, and we are grateful to Servus for stepping up to provide a means to engage our volunteers,” said Dr. Ann-Marie Reddy, President & CEO, Habitat Edmonton. “Their sponsorship will allow us to properly equip our volunteers to have a tangible impact in our ReStores and in other areas of our organization.”
On January 10, Habitat raised a banner in their ReStore at 4004 99 Street that displays a design created by Servus for a tee shirt that demonstrates the importance of volunteerism in the community. The tee shirts will be worn by volunteers at the ReStores.
Since 2020, Habitat has engaged between 800 and 1,000 volunteers per year to develop skills and produce tangible outcomes in the community. In 2023, over 35,000 hours were given by volunteers! Since 1991, Habitat, donors, and volunteers have empowered over 850 homeowners by bringing communities together to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. We can only continue the work because of the support of partners like Servus Credit Union.
