Honeywell Volunteers Provide Safer Schools and Homes in Mexicali
November 17, 2014
Honeywell and Rebuilding Together completed a renovation project at Francisco I. Madero High School, a school for students from low-income families in Mexicali. Honeywell donated $9,000 in materials, and nearly 300 Honeywell volunteers along with 30 teachers and students renovated the school facility. Volunteers spent the day cleaning, painting classrooms and grounds, upgrading the athletic courts and providing crucial repairs in four of the school’s buildings.
In Chihuahua, Mexico, they also completed a renovation project at Asilo San Antonio, a facility that provides support to senior citizens requiring sensitive care. More than 250 volunteers from Honeywell spent the day performing critical repairs, maintenance, cleaning and painting.
The projects were sponsored by Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s corporate citizenship initiative that combines financial support through employee donations with the aid of hardworking employee volunteers to repair schools, community centers, and other establishments that are vitally important to our communities. Since 2003, more than 15,500 Honeywell volunteers have repaired more than 500 homes and non-profit centers in Honeywell communities in the United States, Canada and Mexico, rehabilitating and revitalizing low-income housing, schools, and other community assets.
