Simpson Strong-Tie Aids Habitat for Humanity
June 27, 2008
PLEASANTON, Calif. - Simpson Strong-Tie volunteers from across the country traveled to the Gulf Coast on May 11-16 to work alongside former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalynn. Simpson Strong-Tie employees joined thousands of volunteers to build 30 new homes, rehabilitate 30 homes, and frame up more than 48 homes in the host cities of Biloxi, Gulfport and Pascagoula, Miss., as part of the 25th annual Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project hosted by communities along the Gulf Coast. As part of this year’s project, volunteers will build houses in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama. For more information, visit www.strongtie.com or www.habitat.org/jcwp/2008/.
