It takes a lot of work to make restorations to a house damaged by a disaster, but EHS Restoration does what it can to bring families back into their homes. We also like to support those who help people in need in different ways, and we’d like to let you know about them.
TOYS FOR TOTS
For almost 70 years, the United States Marine Corps Reserve has been gathering toys around the holidays for less fortunate children. In that time, they have collected over half a billion toys across the US. That’s a lot of Christmases that have been made a little better every year.
By this point, it is not only an officially sanctioned mission of the USMCR, but dozens of major sponsors pitch in every year to help with the collection process. And EHS Restoration is proud to help fulfill that mission.
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE
It’s one of those scenarios in life that nobody wants to think about and really can’t prepare for: your child having to fight against a debilitating and possibly fatal illness. It’s a frightening situation to be in for everybody, and what makes it worse is that sometimes the treatment requires the patient to travel to a strange city in order to get the help they need.
The Ronald McDonald House organization helps families experiencing this sort of crisis by ensuring that parents can find temporary housing close to the hospital where their child is being treated, as well sponsoring family rooms inside the hospital where parents can be with their children outside of a normal hospital room.
With chapters in more than 63 different regions in the world, families in need are sure to find the added help they require for getting through a difficult time.
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Everybody needs a home, a place to call their own. Sometimes, getting that place is harder than it ought to be. Habitat for Humanity aims to help people build a home, possibly their first, hopefully not their last. By bringing together volunteers and potential homeowners, new houses are built and individuals put in “sweat equity” to make their goal of home ownership a reality.
While EHS Restoration is in the business of restoring houses that have been badly damaged, we don’t mind having a little competition from this organization as it works around the world to make sure that nobody goes without shelter.
