United Way of the Coastal Bend gave Habitat for Humanity-Corpus Christi $40,000 for the long-term recovery of Corpus Christi residents. Habitat for Humanity’s volunteers and recipient homeowners worked together to repair and rebuild the roofs of six homes. The seventh began construction on July 9th.
A team of volunteers from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Higginbotham, NuStar and Valero joined United Way staff for the 2018 Day of Action on Thursday, June 21st. Day of Action is a nationwide event where local United Ways gather generous volunteers and take on projects that better the community.
“When it comes to giving, time and action are as valuable as the funds we receive,” said Catrina Wilson, President & CEO of United Way of the Coastal Bend. “Volunteerism is a key component of a philanthropic community.”
