SHE BUILDS MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MD

Shapiro & Duncan Partners with Rebuilding Together Montgomery County and Women Building Washington Group of ABC Metro Washington Chapter

She Builds a national movement across Rebuilding Together aims to bring together female leadership from across our networks to transform neighborhoods into thriving places to live and grow.

Rockville, MD – March 12, 2018 – Shapiro & Duncan’s leading women joined 90 volunteers from ABC Metro Washington’s Women Building Washington Group on March 9, 2018 working on two female-led households and one women’s shelter in Montgomery County. Volunteers dedicated their working day to make safe and healthy home repairs, which included bathroom renovations, flooring repairs, debris clean-up, railing installations and more.

In addition to the much needed renovations, five Shapiro & Duncan employees participated in a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign and raised $1,450 to help cover costs of repairs for the project sites. With the support of over 200 friends and family members, all volunteers raised a total of over $21,000 for the event.

Shapiro & Duncan’s corporate culture is driven by an uncompromising commitment to community engagement. Outreach is where we invest our time and resources to promote our industry and our community to ensure that as we move through life, each step we take makes the world a better place for future generations. She Builds gave female builders a meaningful, hands-on opportunity while preventing homeowner displacement. 

 “My family has participated in the Rebuilding Together program for several years following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. Participating in SheBuilds was a very rewarding experience. Although it was a lot of hard work, the amazing results at the end of the day and the homeowner’s appreciation and smile made it all worth it.  I look forward to participating in future SheBuilds events.” – Mary Beth Kingsley, Senior Project Manager.

Met with a few technical challenges, the conglomerates of volunteers worked cohesively to successful execute renovations.

She Builds was a challenging and rewarding experience! My team removed the homeowner’s old Kitchen flooring and installed a new floor.  It was a challenge figuring out how to use the tools and get the floor up but it was so rewarding learning new skills and knowing our work helped to create a safer and better home.Aubrey Ginn, Assistant Project Manager.

One of Shapiro & Duncan’s principal tenets is “giving back to our community and the construction industry.” All of our employees are members of the “family” and are encouraged and supported in all facets of community and industry outreach. We will continue to champion causes that revitalize communities and rebuild lives.
