Hard Hats and Hard Work for Habitat

As part of our title sponsorship of Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa’s Women Build initiative – a fundraising program that gives women the chance to empower themselves and others by raising money and building homes for future Habitat families – 10 employee volunteers recently participated in a Women Build Day at Habitat’s newest development site – Kemptville Korners.

The team completed a variety of key tasks during this unique team building experience, such as framing interior walls, moving rebar for the second floor ICF walls, and driving countless nails into window buckings - all while being able to see the difference they were making in the lives of 15 future homeowners and their families.

“It was such a special day,” said Property Administrator Gina-Tatiana Tantos “Giving back in such a meaningful, tangible way, and doing it with my awesome coworkers, is an experience I’ll never forget. I’m proud to work for a company dedicated to supporting the communities where we work and live.”

Colonnade BridgePort is proud to give back to the communities where we live and work. We have been supporting Habitat for Humanity Greater Ottawa for many years with in-kind development management services; sponsorship of the annual gala; and most recently, participating in Build Days and title sponsorship of Women Build.
