NEW YORK — National finance company Eastern Funding LLC recently joined forces with Habitat for Humanity New York City on local projects to create affordable homes for families in need.
In mid-September, more than 50 Eastern Funding employees volunteered at Habitat for Humanity construction sites in Hollis, Queens. Under the direction of Habitat for Humanity construction staff, they helped with demolition, framing, putting down floorboards, and other tasks.
Besides employees giving their labor and time to the effort, Eastern Funding also supported Habitat through a monetary donation. Habitat for Humanity New York City reports the donation will help the organization’s work in “transforming lives and communities by building quality, affordable homes.”
Two of Eastern Funding’s fundamental principles and practices, says President Michael Fanger, are to do the right thing and be compassionate.
“Giving of ourselves to others to improve lives and communities is doing the right thing,” he says. “Helping those less fortunate than ourselves is being compassionate. Habitat for Humanity is an outstanding organization that makes it possible for so many to do the right thing and to improve lives in the process. We are honored to do our part.”
