Harris and Habitat Construct New Home in Lynwood, California

Harris partnership with Habitat for Humanity continues with a Los Angeles area team build

California Corporate Social Responsibility


    Lynwood, CA -

    On October 25, Harris & Associates, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity, assisted with the construction of a new home on Euclid Avenue in Lynwood, California, a community located in the greater Los Angeles area.

    Habitat for Humanity Los Angeles is working to build and rehabilitate several other Lynwood area homes for families in need. A total of 13 Harris employee-owners and guests from our Irvine, San Diego and Inland Empire office areas attended the build. Harris volunteers performed various construction tasks, including installing siding and roof trusses. 

    The family and future owners of the house were also on-site that day, a mother and daughter who are eager to move in to their new home. They were both appreciative of the Habitat volunteers' work and contributions to their home.

    The Los Angeles team build is part of a partnership Harris launched with Habitat for Humanity in honor of the firm’s 40th Anniversary. For 40 years, Harris has been building stronger communities and helping achieve Habitat’s vision of a world where everyone has a decent place to live. The company will be participating in three builds total as part of the partnership, including Escondido and Martinez areas in addition to Los Angeles. Harris will also be sponsoring the November 7, 2014 Framing the Future Breakfast in Menlo Park.

    To join our efforts in building stronger communities, please donate to our Habitat giving campaign. Check out the video from our Escondido team build.
