It’s a typical August day — pushing 90 degrees, 100 percent humidity — but, undaunted, Liberty Bank’s HR department turned out in force to assist with the build of a Middlesex Habitat for Humanity home for a local vet. On Friday August 17, they were toting, hammering, climbing, and slinging nail guns on the Portland job site as their contribution to a vet who sacrificed for his country.
Former Marine Dustin and his wife Yiran worked side by side with the Liberty crew as part of their sweat equity contribution towards their new home. The future homeowners are currently pursuing college degrees and raising an eight-month-old baby. They expect to be in their home next spring.
News Channel 8 was on the scene as part of its ‘Vets Rock’ campaign to interview Dustin, Liberty Bank’s Chief Administrative Officer Rob Parry, and Middlesex Habitat for Humanity Director of Finance and Operations Chris Aresco.
Parry talked about not only the bank’s commitment to affordable housing, but also employees’ strong desire to honor our vets through volunteerism.
A special thank-you goes out to FIP Construction of Farmington. Their employees are currently putting the finishing touches on Liberty Bank’s new corporate headquarters in Middletown and the company offered its own appreciation to Dustin and family with a $5,000 contribution to Middlesex Habitat.
