The Customer Services Organization leadership team is accustomed to preparing for storm season, but they recently prepared sheetrock, fascia and hardy board for painting for a Habitat for Humanity home during a team volunteer event.
After swinging a hammer during Habitat’s National Women Build last month, Assistant to the Vice President of CSO Stacey Miles helped arrange a day to continue work on the future Moss Point home of Edna Earl Epps.
“I had such a great time helping make an immediate impact that I came back and shared the experience at our team meeting,” Miles said. “We had been looking for a volunteer opportunity and this seemed like a perfect fit.”
The company has had a long relationship with Habitat for Humanity throughout the service territory, and the CSO leadership team looks forward to continuing that involvement.
“Mississippi Power and Habitat for Humanity both strive to improve the quality of life for residents in our local communities,” CSO Vice President Jeff Franklin said. “Habitat for Humanity is an amazing organization that makes lifelong impacts on deserving families, and we’re proud to play a small part in the process.”
