On a brisk Saturday morning in December, 30 employees and spouses from Roanoke Cement Company traveled to the Hurt Park section of Roanoke to put the finishing touches on a Habitat For Humanity rehabilitation project. A 100-year-old house on Salem Avenue was being renovated through a collaborative between Habitat for Humanity and Total Action Against Poverty. Roanoke Cement employees worked on outdoor landscaping, which included planting trees and shrubs, laying down grass seed, straw, and spreading mulch. Another group of employees worked inside the house, painting walls and installing doors. The mission of Habitat for Humanity in the Roanoke Valley is to “improve the lives of families in need by providing affordable quality homes in partnership with homeowners and volunteers for the enhancement of our community.”
Roanoke Cement also financially sponsored the project.
