Community involvement is essential to our core beliefs, not because it can help build stronger relationships with customers, partners, and stakeholders. Still, it can also forge strong relationships with the local community. When businesses get involved in their communities, they can demonstrate their commitment to the people and places where they do business. Aside from creating a way to increase customer loyalty, employee satisfaction, and community support, it makes us feel good about what we do and who we do it for.
In June 2023, we had such an opportunity through Hearts & Hammers. This non-profit organization provides exterior home improvement assistance to low-income homeowners in the Twin Cities and Dallas areas. SiteKick was partnered with Barbara, a homeowner who needed some help with a few tasks around her home.
SiteKick learned about Hearts and Hammers through their colleagues at Big-D Construction. After discovering how their mission to help “keep people in the homes they love” allowed senior citizens, disabled individuals, US military veterans, and their surviving spouses to continue living independently, getting involved was an easy decision for SiteKick. “Their mission speaks to their servant leadership and something we value very much at SiteKick,” said CEO Tom Wolfe.
“It was an honor to partner with Hearts and Hammers, and the look on Barbara’s face when she said it “looked gorgeous” was worth its weight in gold!” said Tom.
Hearts & Hammers was founded in 1986 by a group of volunteers concerned about the growing number of homeowners struggling to keep up with the maintenance of their homes. Hearts & Hammers has helped over 8,500 homeowners since its inception. The organization’s work significantly impacts the lives of its clients. Homeowners who receive assistance from Hearts & Hammers can stay in their homes and improve their overall quality of life.
